Twilight Aged Care

Twilight Aged Care has been delivering aged care services since 1915, providing high quality aged care for more than 160 residents in northern Sydney communities, employing over 200 dedicated staff. As one of the oldest not-for-profit aged care providers in Australia, Twilight is committed to providing the highest quality integrated care and accommodation, including dementia, palliative and respite care.

Twilight was established by community donations for the sole purpose of providing care for those in need. Today, Twilight actively engages with local charities, schools, choirs and more in order to connect with the community-driven roots and improve the quality of life of residents.

Twilight’s main point of difference lies in the homely environment that is cultivated in each of their homes; a departure from the clinical, hospital-like atmosphere of so many other aged care facilities. Staff and management are nurtured and developed to help deliver the highest quality of care for their residents. Twilight also ensures effective operation with regular employee performance reviews and ongoing training and learning programs.

As part of its commitment to providing its staff with the best resources to support residents effectively, Twilight Aged Care rolled out PainChek® across all of its aged care facilities in 2019. The rollout sought to improve the diagnosis and management of pain in people living with dementia or cognitive impairment.

Twilight’s Organisation Development Manager, Fiona Wallace said,

“PainChek® has made it easier with data that can support clinical decision-making. Over time, we can use PainChek® Analytics to proactively monitor pain and introduce interventions as needed. It’s also been instrumental in supporting people with changed behaviours to understand whether pain is an underlying cause.”
