Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Established in 1987, Lifebridge Australia Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a range of support programs to people with disability, people who are frail aged, people with dementia and their carers. Lifebridge plays a vital role in the lives of our customers and families, providing the supports they require through a range of services designed to enhance independence. We deliver a unique approach within disability and aged care for people to connect with their community and to achieve their full potential whilst maintaining and developing key life skills. We achieve this through a service delivery mode; developed from the Montessori philosophy, a practice of learning through doing. We deliver a person-cantered approach that enables our customers to live their lives, their way. We provide opportunities so that our customers can always work towards achieving their full potential and remain as independent as possible. HIGHLIGHTS 2015 16: Within the last 12 months Lifebridge has introduced a myriad of new customer centred programs based on the feedback and ideas of our customers. Unsurprisingly, these programs have been incredibly successful and participation is excelling.Lifebridge has participated in the NDS National Innovation Pilot Program which is preparing the organisation for the NDIS rolloutThe Lifebridge Social Support and Community Access Groups continue to be a favourite for customers at The Cottage. Each month our groups come together to decide on the activities they want to do and how they will go about it. We empower our groups to be active participants in the decision making process and encourage everyone to express their suggestions.The Living with Dementia program is a national initiative of Alzheimers Australia. Lifebridge is skilled up with 4 trained facilitators to be able to deliver this fantastic program to our customers. The program was delivered in the past 12 months and the response has been very positive.
