Previously known as Rahma Aged Care, Gallipoli Home is run by the same group of people who began this project, with the same vision to serve our elders.
Taking our responsibility of looking after our elders seriously, we recognised that there were no aged care homes that adequately cater for the specific needs of our culturally diverse Muslim community.
After hearing many stories of aged care centres that aren't able to cater for Islamic practice, we felt that the need to create Gallipoli Home was about more than providing a service, it was an obligation.
In response to this need, Gallipoli Mosque and seven different cultural associations based in Sydney came together to develop Gallipoli Home. Their knowledge and understanding of their communities has played an integral role in the planning of Gallipoli Home.
Our aged care home will have staff who speak Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, and Urdu, to cater for over 10 different cultural communities.
Today, we have put our planning into action by starting the building process. We look forward to the completion of the building in 2018. Click here to support the project.
Our vision is to set a high standard for aged care, where elders of culturally diverse and Muslim backgrounds feel right at home.
Active compassion, kindness, and respect for our clients and their families from all cultural & religious backgrounds.
We value the emotional, spiritual, and physical health of our elders, to help them live healthier and happier lives by actively ensuring their individual needs are met.
INNOVATION FOR EXCELLENCE:
Delivering exceptional care by creating a home that brings together innovative facilities and outstanding staff.
Through constant self-review and openness to feedback, we are always on the look out for ways to make sure we’re at the forefront of aged care.
Connecting with our culturally diverse communities to enrich the lives of our elders, and enriching our communities in return.
By creative collaborations that place Gallipoli Home at the heart of numerous cultural communities, we aim to bring joy to both our elders and our broader communities.
