Our Team

Like other small communities, our community members work together in small teams to deliver of the very best care and services to residents.

We believe that all members of the community can contribute. Our residents, their loved ones, team members, external stakeholders and volunteers can all contribute to the purpose of the organisation.

Direct care and service team members form the primary relationship with residents and their families and are therefore are the core of our services. Clinical, hospitality and administrative staff support direct team members, and all exist to enable this primary relationship.

Our community is led by a board and a small team of management and administrative staff, all of whom work at our homes.
