History, Vision & Mission
Allied Aged Care evolved from principal physiotherapist Alwyn Blayse’s private practice business in QLD. He started it as a sole trader under his own name in 1999 and later renamed as Blue Ribbon Physiotherapy in 2007. Blue Ribbon Physiotherapy became a company in 2015 and grew from looking after 1 nursing home to 5 that year.
We also grew from having just a few employees to over 30 employees by the start of 2018. Allied Aged Care now works in both community private practice and residential aged care. The areas we cover are Mackay, Kilcoy, Goondiwindi, Toowoomba, Gympie, Sunshine Coast, Cairns, Atherton, and Malanda.
We have a passionate team of experienced and caring Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, supported by a wonderful administrative team to support them.
Our remarkable growth has come about from our passion and excellent word of mouth from our nursing homes. We are always determined to do aged care better.
Allied Aged Care is less about Alwyn now, and more about Allied Aged Care’s place in the aged care world. With new leaders coming through to continue and take AAC in directions Alwyn would never have anticipated.
Our vision is to provide “more care” during allied health provision in residential and community aged care services. AAC focuses on rural and regional QLD to improve aged care services there. We do this by providing health and economic benefits to our organizations and clients we work with. We constantly upskill and empower our team goals that are developed in consultation with team members and the clients we work with.
Our mission is to care more for our clients by 3 rules:
- Becoming part of teams and communities
- Provide more economic benefit to our clients and our organization
- Provide more meaningful treatments
Just like our mission statement says:
We express our care at the organizations we work at with 3 key points of difference that distinguish us from any other allied health group out there.
What do we mean by care at Allied Aged Care?
At Allied Aged Care, caring more stands for a lot of things. It means;
The Future of Allied Aged Care
Allied Aged Care commits to become a force of change in the world of community and aged care in regional areas. We have broadened more now into more community and private practice work to help this aim. We continue to be passionate about what we do and to maximize the lives of our residents as well as our team.
Allied Aged Care has set goals for the organization that we aim to fulfill in the next 5 years.
