Evermore has been recognised as an innovative model of care by the Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
Featuring in an independent research report by Flinders University, Review of Innovative Models of Aged Care, Evermore was listed as an example of small-scale living that could be beneficial for the Australian aged care market.
The report examined how aged care is delivered around the world and the types of innovative approaches used. Small homes like the Evermore model were identified as maximising the independence of residents and their participation in daily activities.
Benefits of small-scale living recorded by Flinders University included increased social engagement, improvements in quality of care, and improved relationships with caregivers.
Report authors also found this model better meets consumer preferences and delivers more personalised care.
Evermore Founder, Sara McKee, said: “We’ve been sharing the Evermore small homes model of living for nearly eight years and it’s rewarding to see it recognised internationally as a benchmark for innovation. We will continue to champion positive lifestyle choices and we hope our work encourages others to do things differently so all older people have the opportunity to live happy.”
The Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established in October 2018 by Australian Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove. Its goal is to consider how to create a better system of care for older Australians.
The Royal Commission is basing its findings on public hearings, roundtable discussions with experts, community forums, independent research and public submissions. To date, the Royal Commission also collected more than 7,700 public submissions into the state of the aged care sector.
