High care residential aged care facilities in Victoria : consultation paper /

by Victoria. Department of Human Services.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Government Publishing Service 2000Description: 59 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2000Summary: Over 36,000 older Victorians are residents of Commonwealth-funded residential aged care facilities, of whom just under half are in high care residential care facilities. The Commonwealth Government funds, regulates and sets standards for high and low care facilities. In 1995 the previous Victorian Government removed the State regulatory framework for nursing homes. At the time, it was argued that the State regulatory framework duplicated the Commonwealth's role. The Victorian Government believes that the community expects all levels of Government to work co-operatively to promote the well being of residents living in aged care facilities. Through this paper the Victorian Government wishes to stimulate discussion about positive action that can be taken to promote a greater sense of confidence among older people and their carers about residential aged care services. The Victorian Government believes that people living in residential aged care facilities are entitled to feel secure that they will receive the services they need and that they will be treated with dignity and respect. This paper and the consultations with the community is aimed at promoting these objectives.Availability: (1)

Through candid interviews, hidden camera footage and in the words of asylum seekers themselves, the story of the 'refugee' is told. What pushes people to leave home? What do they leave behind? What do they fear? Why did they choose this path? And what does it take to turn someone into a 'boat person'? ; Meet the human faces behind the most controversial issue of our time.

Wintringham [Website] / Wintringham

by Wintringham.

Publisher: Flemington VIC : Wintringham Online Access: Wintringham website Summary: The company honours the name of Tiny Wintringham, a homeless man who resided at the original Gordon House in Little Bourke Street, Melbourne. Gordon House was one of Victoria's notorious night shelters where homeless people were given a bed for the night. When it appeared that Gordon House was to be closed, Tiny gathered support from government, unions and the media which resulted in Gordon House being rebuilt on the banks of the Yarra River. This new building has now since closed, but Tiny’s successful fight against what appeared to be insurmountable obstacles, continues to inspire the company that has been named in his honour. The founder of Wintringham is its Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Lipmann. Wintringham was established in 1989 in response to the frustrations of watching elderly men and women die in homeless persons’ night shelters, unable to access mainstream aged care services. Elderly residents were thought of as first and foremost ‘Homeless’ – aged care services wanted nothing to do with them. ; Brotherhood of St Laurence and the Commonwealth Government and its Aged Care Minister at the time, Peter Staples, funding was secured for Wintringham to build three hostels for elderly, frail homeless men and women. These three became McLean Lodge in Flemington, Wintringham Hostel in Williamstown, and Wintringham Hostel in Port Melbourne.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
