Who is Warrigal
Older people will have great lives.
Integrity, respect, compassion and innovation.
We support older people to create inspiring communities.
Our philosophy recognises how we behave always involves a choice. We choose how to behave based on what we know at the time and what we are most capable of doing to meet one or more of our basic human needs. At Warrigal we believe these needs are the general motivation for everything we do.
Older people should every day have the opportunity to be themselves and experience:
- Independence - Freedom from total dependence on, or dominating control by, another person or organisation.
- Dignity - Older people will always be treated as being worthy of esteem and respect.
- Happiness - Older people should be able to experience a sense of purpose and live enriched lives with laughter and creativity.
- Connectedness - Older people are welcomed and experience friendship, affection, acceptance, companionship and meaningful relationships.
At Warrigal our philosophy starts with “F”
“F” words - fun, food, family, friends, familiarity, freedom, fitness, future, favourite things, fruit, feelings, frolicking, fraternising, fellowship, etc.
“I chose to do what I did today. It was a good day and I was able to be myself.”
