Philosophy Of Living (POL)
Philosophy of Living (POL) is based on "one’s way of life" and creates an environment in which our people grow. It includes social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and physical wellbeing which takes into account a person’s right to quality of life. POL is delivered through our Neighbourhood Model of Living, Integrated Governance and an Interdisciplinary Team. We believe our people are deserving of choice, dignity and wellbeing.
Consistent with the organisation’s Mission and Vision statements, Montefiore operates with a POL that supports our care recipients to have a greater say in how they want to live their life. We call this Person Directed Living (PDL) which seeks to optimise the choice, dignity and wellbeing of everyone in our care.
A tree with 3 branches and Montefiore leaves. The 3 branches represent the 3 POL elements - choice, dignity and wellbeing which are independent yet mutually reinforcing.
POL is supported by what we call the POL framework which integrates the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT), the Neighbourhood Model of Living (NMoL) and Integrated Governance (IG) to ensure person directed delivery of services.
