Huon Healthcare, a private approved provider for residential aged care services, was established in 1996.
The proprietor of Huon Healthcare has been successfully involved in the Aged Care industry for many years and has set very high standards for care delivery and services as well as for resident accommodation.
Huon Healthcare aims to provide the highest quality of care and lifestyle services, delivered in a tasteful environment and tailored to the needs of the individual resident. We are committed to resident-centred care and the provision of innovative programs and services, and determined to be the leader in residential aged care and retirement living in Australia.
Dementia specific programs are a high priority for residents who are in need of such care and we also provide services including lifestyle enhancement, pet therapy, strength and conditioning, aromatherapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
Huon Healthcare's Allied Health Services Department's prime objective is to provide residents with a meaningful and therapeutic program. It aims to deliver a dynamic program, which lives and grows with both residents and staff. The fundamental of delivery is to meet resident individual needs and provide a balance between individual and group activity, with an environment that invites trust, involvement and an enhancement of self-esteem.
At Huon Healthcare, we recognise that human-animal bonds are important to client and community health and we acknowledge that the human animal bond has existed for thousands of years.
For this reason, we have introduced a professionally structured program, Pets as Therapy (PAT) into our residential aged care facilities, which allows an animal that meets specific criteria can become integral part of the treatment process. PAT is delivered and/or directed by a qualified Pet Therapist.
Animal assisted therapy is designed to promote improvement in human physical, social, emotional, or cognitive function, quality of life, opportunities for motivation, education and recreation. Animal assisted therapy is provided in a variety of settings, and may be group or individual in nature. The process is documented and evaluated to ensure it remains effective.
