About Lifebridge Australia
Lifebridge Australia Ltd is a community not-for-profit organisation with over 30 years experience in providing Disability and Aged Care Services in the NSW Far North Coast and South East Queensland regions.

The Lifebridge Advantage
The Lifebridge Advantage is the fundamental philosophy and methodology that underpins our organisational arrangements and all our daily activities and interactions with staff and customers. Based on the Montessori philosophy and the strengths based approach of positive psychology it manifests as both our service delivery model as well as our organisational culture and the way we do things around here.
Montessori is an approach supporting the full development of the human being. Originally developed as a learning approach for children with a disability based on self-directed, hands on activity in a collaborative environment; it has subsequently been adapted for people of all ages, including the development of techniques for working alongside people with dementia.
Based on the human rights principles of Respect, Dignity, Independence, Choice, Self Determination and Self Realisation it underpins both the service delivery model for our customers as well as our values and the organisational design and culture we wish to imbed.
Lifebridge aspires to see independence and inclusion for the aged and people with disability in our community.
