Having received four Commonwealth Government endorsed Better Practice Awards for the provision of outstanding aged care services, Sydney’s Montefiore has gained a reputation as being amongst the finest and most respected aged care organisations in Australia.

This has led to international interest which has seen many foreign Government health and aged care representatives as well as overseas aged care organisations visit Montefiore and tour its facilities. In addition to gaining a better understanding of our care services and quality of life program, international visitors are particularly keen to visit the Randwick campus which, as Montefiore’s newest facility, includes design elements and a standard of accommodation that are unequalled within Australia and considered to be amongst the best in the world.

Montefiore recently hosted a visit from Dr Karima Velji, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing Executive of Baycrest, an internationally renowned aged and health care organisation located in Toronto, Canada and widely regarded as amongst the finest aged care providers in the world. Baycrest is also a Jewish owned organisation.

Baycrest have actively sought to partner internationally with other aged care providers which are considered to be leaders in the field of aged care and that meet their stringent standards of care delivery and attention to the provision of quality of life for older persons. The purpose of the partnership is to share knowledge and to benchmark quality activities and outcomes amongst the finest aged care providers in the world.

It therefore comes as a great honour to be invited by Baycrest to join this elite group through their “Seniors Quality Leap Initiative”, a global benchmarking system which is being led by Baycrest and whereby Montefiore will have an opportunity to contribute internationally to the enhancement of aged care services.

During her visit to the Randwick campus, Dr Velji was particularly impressed by our attention to the quality of life of our residents. Perhaps her thoughts were best summed up when she said “It was a pleasure to witness your great organisation. It is so obvious that you have built a stellar place of care”.

We look forward to our collaboration with Baycrest and the tangible benefits this may bring to the care of older persons everywhere.
