A Rose by any other name
"Never underestimate the power of a woman, be it for good or evil." The words sound like the epigraph to a great novel or film, not the advice of a Mother Superior to her nursing nuns at St Benedict’s Hospital, Malvern, the first Sisters of Mercy hospital in Victoria almost 100 years ago.

Mercy Place Mount St Joseph's residential aged care home has undergone a modern and innovative transformation, adopting a household living approach to aged care in the newly redeveloped home.
Naomi Realph lives independently in her own unit, but the 32-year-old, who has Down's Syndrome, enjoys a helping hand from a Mercy Health Home Care Worker to make life run a little smoother.
