Berlasco offers a high standard of care to our residents, many from CALD backgrounds. Our staff speak a total of 56 languages, allowing us to support CALD residents, who may need to communicate in their first language. Registered nurses are on staff 24 hours a day to ensure the highest quality of care.
Allied Health Professionals are an important part of the care for our residents. Berlasco has full-time physiotherapists and occupational therapists to support with mobility, pain management and equipment. Our residents have access to speech pathologists, dieticians, optometry services, dentists and podiatrists as required and as part of their scheduled routine health care.
Leisure and Lifestyle Program
Our person-centred model ensures each resident feels supported and planned activities link with their cultural background, their community and with their past and current interests. This means input and feedback from our residents and families is paramount to the planning and delivery of the program.
Our diversional therapists/assistants are dedicated to enriching the lives of our residents. Our team organises a wide range of activities including exercises, arts and crafts, games, music, cultural events and outings to suit the interests and abilities of our residents. Our program of outings includes small group outings for residents with shared interests and one-on-one outings with a staff member to the places they used to frequent, places in their community and places of interest.
