AYAH: Finalist for Industry Choice Award

The Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice (AYAH) in Manly has been recognised as a finalist for the Industry Choice Award, presented by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia. This award distinguishes excellence in major infrastructure projects that showcase outstanding customer outcomes and community benefits.

The judging panel carefully considered the AYAH project for its notable impact on patients who previously lacked suitable options for their specialised care and respite needs. The project stood out for its ability to provide dedicated and professional support for families, with a particular emphasis on privacy, respite, and recreation. Judges commended the project team for their innovative approach in delivering a social infrastructure solution, which includes specialised music and art therapy spaces, creating a comforting home-like environment for residents.

Since its opening in February 2023, the Manly AYAH has been providing specialised care tailored to individuals aged 15 to 24. Services offered include respite, symptom management, end-of-life care, and coordination support. The facility boasts a range of amenities such as telehealth consultation areas, breakout spaces, a multisensory room, games room, media room, eight patient bedrooms, and two-family accommodation units.

Voting for the 2024 Industry Choice Awards is currently open and will close at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, 10 April. We encourage everyone to participate in the voting process to recognise the dedication of the AYAH project team and the significance of tailored care for this demographic.
