Enabling our elders to age with dignity and grace
We pride ourselves on providing specialist residential and community aged care services for the Chinese and South East Asian communities. The Australian Nursing Home Foundation is one of the largest providers of culturally and linguistically diverse aged care in Australia.
Established in 1980, our humble beginnings started with a handful of inspiring people continued to grow with the support of our employees, volunteers, board members, partners, donors, families and the elders that we serve.
We know that vibrant communities are distinguished by the way they build belonging, create connection and foster participation. These are ANHF’s core values so that our elders can age with dignity and grace.
By following the traditional Chinese heritage of ‘Honouring and Respecting the Senior of the Family’, our foundation has adopted the Confucian precept of “Love, serve and respect our neighbour’s elders as our own”.
Our Elders are honoured and respected as family in a caring and loving community. ANHF was founded and endowed for the purpose of taking care of the elderly in the Australian Chinese community who had no close relatives in Australia, or had lost contact with relatives overseas.
Our vision was to create a vibrant environment and inclusive culturally appropriate care for our elders, so that they did not feel segregated by society due to language barriers, or their ability to communicate their needs.
Culturally appropriate care
Our elders are looked after by someone who speaks their language and understands their heritage. Helping our elders feel right at home is what we strive to achieve. So from meal times, to social activities, to the aesthetics of our facilities; these are all designed specifically to suit the cultural background of our residents.
Compassionate expert care
We are passionate in providing a warm and friendly care environment in all our facilities. Our qualified staff are committed to providing one on one attention for each resident, so that they will experience the best possible quality of life.
We offer specialist clinical care, a range of social and recreational programs, nutritious Asian meals, safe and comfortable interiors, and refreshing outdoor open space with strong cultural links to the community to help residents keep an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
