Aged care leadership celebrated

Board members and executive managers from local community aged care providers gathered recently in Lutwyche to recognise the contributions their organisations have made as members of the healthy@home consortium.

The consortium provides Commonwealth Home Support Program services in the Brisbane North and Caboolture regions to help older people maximise their independence and remain living at home.

Brisbane North PHN Chair Dr Anita Green was on hand to welcome guests to the event and said it was an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate leadership in aged care.

“Healthy@home leverages the combined resources and skills of the 19 member organisations to trial innovative programs, enhance service delivery and support better health outcomes for clients with special needs,” Dr Green said.

“Bringing member organisation board directors together to network with each other and learn more about the consortium’s work was a very worthwhile initiative,” she said. 

The PHN’s Executive Manager for Aged and Community Care Michelle Smith spoke at the event, providing background on the consortium and its impact, value and achievements.

Attendees were treated to a tour of the new consortium website https://healthyathome.org.au.
