Six Senses

The Six Senses is an empirically tested framework underpinning Arcare’s Relationship-First Approach. This framework has been developed from the ‘Senses-framework’ Nolan et al., 2006.

It ensures that we are focused on maximising the well-being, growth and contribution of everyone in the Arcare community.

 

Our ‘Six Senses’ are:

Security
To feel safe and receive or deliver competent and intuitive care.

Continuity
Using the past to make sense of the present and to pave the way for the future. Working within a consistent team driven with an agreed philosophy of care.

Belonging
Having opportunities to form meaningful relationships and to feel part of the community as a resident, family member, volunteer or team member.

Purpose
Engage in purposeful activity and have an environment that actively values and fosters personal goals.

Fulfilment
Achieve meaningful goals and feel satisfied with one’s efforts – both small and big.

Significance
To feel that you, and what you do, matters, and that you are valued as a person of worth.
