Moyola Aged Care held its annual general meeting Thursday reporting a successful year with a huge amount of community support demonstrated through its fundraiser for the new wing.
The new Margaret Love wing was opened by the fundraising sub-committee chair Alan Clement on September 16.
Committee on management spokesman Sam Green thanked the building and fundraising sub-committees for their hard work and dedication.
‘‘We look forward to seeing the first residents moving into the new wing from the start of November,’’ he said.
Mr Green said Moyola had another strong year financially and now manages assets in excess of $20
‘‘Moyola is a significant provider of aged-care services and is well placed to meet the growing demands of the community,’’ he said.
‘‘Moyola successfully underwent re-accreditation and was assessed as meeting all the standards.
‘‘The successful re-accreditation is testament to the continued dedication of staff and they are to be commended for their efforts in providing the highest standard of care to residents.’’
Mr Green said in the past few months Moyola was unfortunate to lose two key management staff.
He acknowledged the contribution of Sharon Felsbourg and Rebecca Abbey, adding the committee wished them well in their future endeavours.
Mr Green said Wendy Cann, a registered nurse was appointed to the position of clinical care manager and had settled into the role of ensuring residents at the Lodge continue to receive the care they require.
‘‘It was with great pleasure that the committee of management announced at the AGM, the appointment of Polly Devine to the position of executive service manager,’’ he said.
‘‘Polly brings with her more than 20 years experience in the aged-care industry and will start on November 28.
‘‘The committee looks forward to working with the new executive service manager and seeing the new wing fully occupied as soon as possible.’’
