The team in Newcastle and Hunter Region is made up of experienced, skilful, warm and passionate Care Workers and Care Managers who are all Newcastle/Hunter locals.

CEO Christina Harlamb is thrilled to be able to bring quality in-home care services to the Newcastle Hunter - a region which is close to her heart.

Ms Harlamb said she was especially pleased to be able to make Focus Care’s innovative dementia care services, based on Montessori methods, available to thousands of families across the Hunter.

“Our dementia care approach is based on the principles of the Montessori Method, which involves working with every client’s strengths, supporting memory loss to create an environment that promotes independence and the best possible quality of life for people living with dementia,” she said.

“Our care staff are specially trained to deliver dementia care using Montessori methods and we're excited to bring this service to the Hunter and the people of Newcastle.”

Focus Care Newcastle-based care worker Pauline said she felt privileged to be able to support older people stay independent on a daily basis.

“If you’d asked me what I’d like to be doing as a job it’s exactly what I'm doing now – that’s the truth. There’s nothing I enjoy more than caring for older people and being part of this great Focus Care team,” she said.

“The team we have and the philosophy of caring for everyone, based on who the person is as an individual, is something I love being a part of. I feel very privileged to be bringing the Focus Care values to my community here in my hometown of Newcastle.”
