MyLife & Relationship Based Care

MyLife is Whiddon’s award-winning model of care that puts relationships at the heart of great care.

Relationship based care empowers residents, clients and their families to be true partners in their care, and supports our care staff to build deeper relationships with the people they care for, delivering better outcomes for everyone!

MyLife sees care staff truly getting to know residents by finding out what matters most to them, so they can build strong and deep personal relationships.

All Whiddon care staff are trained through a specific MyLife training program which equips our team with the skills, new techniques and approaches to deliver relationship based care.

Aub's Best Week

97 year old Aub’s a self-professed petrol head.

A lover of anything that drives fast and a mechanic by trade in his younger years, Aub’s Best Week saw him go cruising around the Camden Haven in a Mustang Convertible.

It was an extra special event for Aub to get back on the roads, albeit in the passenger seat, as he had stopped driving a year earlier after more than 80 years behind the wheel and missed it greatly.

In Aub’s words- “this is the best day of my life, i’ll never forget this!”

Bette's Best Week

99 year-old Bette ticked a big experience off her wish list when she went on a motorbike ride for her Best Week.

Bette’s last ride was 85 years ago, when she was late for her baked dinner because she was out riding on the back of a motorcycle. Not only did the team at Bette’s aged care home recreate this memory with a special baked dinner, they made sure she was back from her ride on time for tea!

Bette was joined on her adventure by her MyLife buddy, Amy, who shared that as they pulled out of the drive, Bette asked to go faster.
