Wellington Views Welcomes Aged Care Minister
Wellington Views |
Our residents and staff at Wellington Views in Old Beach were pleased to welcome a very special visitor recently – Federal Aged Care Minister Anika Wells.
Joined by local MP Brian Mitchell as well as our own Managing Director and CEO Jason Binder, the Minister enjoyed meeting residents and learning more about the wonderful work taking place at Wellington Views.
Minister Wells also took the opportunity to speak with a variety of our team members, to learn what they loved about working in Aged Care as well as their thoughts on the challenges shaping the sector, and opportunities moving forward. In particular, the Minister was interested in Respect’s own positive growth, amidst the current challenges facing the industry.
Federal Aged Care Minister Anika Wells enjoyed meeting with our Wellington View team, pictured above with fellow guest Brian Mitchell MP and our CEO Jason Binder. Later, Minister Wells received a special thank you gift from our grateful residents.
During the visit, Minister Wells and Mr Mitchell also took some time to join residents for a seated exercise class run by Wellington View’s Social Care team.
At the end of the activity, Minister Wells was presented with a unique gift from one of our lovely residents, to say thank you for the visit (a hand-made fan she had created during a recent craft session).
