The Bethanie Group
Our Aged Care Facilities offer person-centred care in a supportive and comfortable home-like environment.
We respect each person’s story and show people the dignity they deserve. We provide a wide range of services including chaplaincy and dementia care.
The Bethanie Group plans to use the SPICT as an electronic tool to evaluate care plans. The SPICT guides a more targeted approach to individualised care plan evaluation. It focusses on what it is that the customer needs to be able to live the best quality of life possible. This approach facilities an opportunity for crucial conversations about advance care planning in a sensitive and timely manner.
