The PEARS Model – Care of older people
Care Experience for older people and staff
“The PEARS Model” – Calvary Model of Care for the care of older people
The principle based person focused model has been developed using the best evidence available and aligns to Calvary’s values and Strategic Intent, under our priority ‘A Focus on Quality and Safety’.
Health, social care and the environment are all considered in the PEARS Model and it is designed to cross settings including community, acute and residential aged care facilities with a particularly strong focus on people living with dementia and those requiring palliative and end of life care.
Calvary Exemplar Models
The Exemplar models provide a practical and real life example of how to apply the principles of the PEARS Model. Exemplar models provide an opportunity to showcase Calvary service models, learnings, commitment to best practice and redesign within the aged care setting.
Exemplar models were identified by Calvary as sites leading the way in identifying gaps in service delivery and opportunities for improvement, then implementing solutions to improve patient care, patient experience and service delivery. Current good practice findings from the exemplar site investigations have helped to inform the PEARS Model, Calvary Model of Care for the care of older people.
