Our Cornerstones guide everything we do

At McKenzie, we have a set of seven key values that we refer to as our ‘Cornerstones’.
Developed in collaboration with staff, our Cornerstones guide and reflect our philosophy
and the spirit, culture and values of everyone who works here.

What is a cornerstone?

A cornerstone is the first stone placed in the masonry foundation of a building, thereby setting the orientation of the entire building. In short, the cornerstone sets the foundation for the future.  

Our Mission

We are committed to enriching the lives of people by providing care with compassion, respect and integrity to promote the health, independence and social interaction of seniors.

Our Cornerstones

Everyone at McKenzie is committed to living by our seven Cornerstones:

  • We put people first in a climate of growth and opportunity and provide empowerment and respect to all those we support.
  • We take ownership and pride in everything we do and are honest and forthright in our words and actions.
  • We listen and act decisively and we seek information by listening carefully and openly to others and committing to action.
  • We understand that good people make the difference and are the key to our success. We recognise and encourage the value of individuals and teams. 
  • We seek to find new ways of constantly improving and doing things better, using a positive spirit to succeed.
  • We act with integrity. We uphold high standards of honesty and treat people with fairness and respect.
  • We trust, motivate, inspire and challenge each other in a collaborative team environment.
