Service available to family members
A Completely New Service model never before seen in Aged Care
Grow Wellbeing acknowledges Family members as an important component within our service provision.
Family members can experience significant Psychological hardship as loved one enter an Aged Care Facility.
Denial, anger, guilt and frustration can lead Family members to experience stress leading at times to Facility disruption and conflict.
Complaints are very common within the Aged Care industry and we believe Grow Wellbeing Family support is an invaluable service that help our clients reduce complaints and deal with conflict resolution issues in a professional and effective manner while minimising loss of valuable staff time.
