W&L’s goal is to deliver specialist aged care services to improve the quality of life of older Australians. We constantly seek feedback to ensure we’re meeting the needs of all clients – the residents in aged care facilities, the ageing at home, the organisations we work for, and every staff member we interact with.

We regularly collect feedback during our W&L Quality Management Visits and after each significant client interaction using the Net Promoter Score (NPS) system. This is what some of our clients are saying about us:

I would like to say thank-you for the support that W&L has provided to me since my commencement of my work in the ACT. The new grad program has been a fantastic resource to develop my clinical skills. It was very comprehensive and helped me through various difficult scenarios that I encountered in practice. I feel privileged to work with w&l and will en-devour to develop my clinical and ACFI skills to be a more competent physio to serve the elderly community.

We were very fortunate to have W&L ACFI Consultants attend our rural site and to help us in further understanding the ACFI better! They provided 1:1 mentoring and training the entire time they were completing the ACFI Appraisal Packs, so now we have been able to increase both our knowledge and skills so that we are more confident with optimising our ACFI’s.

Lesley Smith
Clinical Nurse Manager  -  Gilbert Valley Senior Citizens Homes

The W&L Consultancy team has not only helped increase our funding significantly, they also provided training to our staff to improve their ACFI knowledge, provided ongoing support visits, and even helped implement the interventions to realise the funding. We have been really happy with the results achieved and the high level of service.

Jill Taylor
CEO  -  Star of the Sea Home for the Aged

I found the ACFI training that I completed with W&L to be extremely thorough, intensive and comprehensive. I feel that this training has provided me further with the confidence, tools, skills and knowledge to continue to successfully complete all tasks related to managing ACFI across our organisation. At the same time this will assist me to get the best results for my residents and staff while ensuring we get the correct ACFI funding for our organisation. I highly recommend this training for anyone involved in managing ACFI.

Di Hanson

W&L’s approach to the organisation is exceptional, from first contact regarding the range of services on offer, to booking and reviews or provision of services. The focus of W&L is to develop an enduring partnership as shown in their fees which reflect exceptional value for services provided.

Not only this, but our recent validation had no change in resident classification across 25% of our residents and the Validators commented on how well presented our packages were! Thank you W&L for your excellent service.

On behalf of everyone at the Hamley Bridge Memorial Hospital, I would like to thank the ACFI Consultancy Team from Wellness & Lifestyles for coming to assist us will the ACFI’s and for the education session that was provided.
Your visit gave us such valuable support, not only to the senior clinical team, but also to the floor staff that were present during your time here. We have learnt so much, and just knowing that we can call on you with any queries or concerns we have in regards to the ACFI provides us with a sense of security that there is someone out there who can help us when we need it. We have recently had validation and had a 100% pass rate. Everyone is absolutely thrilled with this result and we couldn’t have done without you.
