The outcome of Montefiore Hunters Hill’s Government accreditation audit validates our vision “to be the leader in the field of aged care.”

Over four days in September, Hunters Hill went through the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency accreditation process that allows us to operate. Accreditation requires us to comply with 44 standards set by the Australian Government, covering four main categories – Management Systems, Staffing and Organisational Development; Health and Personal Care; Resident Lifestyle; Physical Environment and Safe Systems.

CEO Robert Orie explains; “The process is extensive and intensive, covering both desk and site audits and I’m delighted to report that we came through with flying colours, meeting all the required standards.”

The assessors confirmed that staff interviewed were “very knowledgeable and creative” and impressed them greatly. Of 20 residents interviewed all were very positive about the care and service provided. “Safe, secure, happy to be here, so lucky to have a place like this,” were oft-repeated sentiments.

In the words of the Assessment Team Leader, “[It has been an] immense pleasure being here. We have enjoyed it so much. Everyone has been so supportive and helpful. Everywhere we have gone people have been eager to share and are full of knowledge. Thank you for helping us do our job so easily.”
