Residential team
In 2015 we made a significant change to how we work in the residential setting and moved away from traditional care to a more responsive and personal approach. Feedback we have received from residents and staff is overwhelmingly supportive of this model of care which means smaller teams in smaller areas to provide a more personal level of support for both care and well-being. Pivotal staff at Glenview are our lifestyle workers (carers) who provide outstanding personal care to all of our residents, our residential assistants and laundrystaff who provide outstanding meal services and housekeeping to all of our residents, as well as our maintenance and gardening crews who ensure the facility and gardens are well cared for.

Outreach team
Our support staff offer Consumer Directed Care which is personal care and support to our clients living in their own homes throughout the community. They are committed staff who often work with a variety of clients with varying degrees of personal requirements. An example of this different approach to care is when we worked with and supported a community client to attend his sons wedding in Western Australia. Through knowing this was a critical goal we were able to tailor our support to send a support worker with him so he could be with his son on this important day.
Outreach team
Day Centre Team
Our enthusiastic staff who run our day respite centres and our overnight cottage respite are a passionate group of men and women. They provide activities day and night for those whose carers need a break from the day-to-day demands of caring for a loved one. Activities are tailored to the individuals interests, day centre participation, as well as excursions and day trips are all part of the wide variety of activities we offer at Glenview. The Mens Shed at Glenview offers hands on fun where you can make just about anything in wood, from toys to furniture and restoration projects.Up to a dozen people hang out together in this warm but friendly workshop within the facility and often invent projects as they go. Its less important what they create and more important to provide the opportunity and to interact with other people. It has such a welcoming feel that many residents join in with the day centre guests.

The Auxiliary

The Glenview Auxiliary is one of Glenorchy’s oldest fundraising groups and has supported Glenview for over 60 years, recently celebrating their Diamond Jubilee.

Originally combined Womens Guilds and Mothers Unions of various parishes would assist with chores and provide treats for residents, such as a drives or concerts and afternoon tea. This tradition evolved into the formation of the Glenview Ladies Auxiliary on the 15th November 1954, with Connie James as President. Connie’s daughter Mary Johnston is a current member with over 35 years of service.

History

Glenview has been a landmark in Glenorchy for more than 100 years.

Built in the 1880‘s, the original Glenview House and its three Norfolk Island Pines were Glenorchy landmarks. The pines are now gone, but are reflected in the Glenview logo as a symbol of strength and of growing together.

Glenview Home for Aged Persons opened in 1948 when the house was purchased by the Church of England for the princely sum of 4,000 pounds.
