Last week, Lyndoch Living’s executive team met with the Federal Minister for Aged Care, the Hon Ken Wyatt, to discuss their exciting new Masterplan which will shape the future of aged care in the greater Warrnambool region.
Lyndoch Chief Executive Officer, Ms Doreen Power, said that the meeting was fruitful and that Minister Wyatt was very impressed with the planned developments, which will enable the respected local organisation to offer world-class, innovative aged care to the Warrnambool region into the future.
“This Masterplan is on an a very impressive, indeed a very grand scale, and its focus on new and innovative ways to deliver care to an ageing population is something the Warrnambool community should be very excited about,” Ms Power said.
“Aged care in this region is going to look very different in 10 years’ time, with an increased emphasis on servicing people in their own homes with advancing levels of care. Our Masterplan is focused on enabling this in the greater Warrnambool region, as well as improving dramatically the experience of those who require higher, institutional care.”
Ms Power said Minister Wyatt was especially keen to hear about Lyndoch’s wide range of community partnerships, and the impact the organisation has on employment and training options in the region.
“Through our partnerships with the likes of TAFE, Deakin University and WestVic Staffing, we are training up our own workforce locally, as well as providing a great range of career pathways to people in the greater Warrnambool region,” Ms Power said.
“With the planned development of our Primary Health Care Centre and the redevelopment of existing facilities on our site, these opportunities for community partnerships are only going to increase,” Ms Power said.
Ms Power thanked the Member for Wannon, the Hon Dan Tehan MP, for his assistance in organising the meeting in Canberra.
