The team at Arcare North Lakes have been awarded an Excellence in Service Award by Federal MP for Petrie Luke Howarth.
Mr Howarth started the Petrie Electorate Aged Care Excellence Awards last year to help recognise outstanding work in the industry locally, after negative press that sparked the Aged Care Royal Commission.
“The Awards are a great opportunity to hear the incredible stories and recognise the wonderful people who work in this industry, whether they be administration staff, gardeners or carers,” Mr Howarth said.
Arcare North Lakes was nominated by Lyndal Maloney, the daughter of resident Adrian Ramah who lived at the centre before he died.
Ms Maloney said the service her father received during his time at Arcare North Lakes was iuncomparable.
“The dedication from my father’s carers, the nursing team and management was second to none,” she said.
“They loved dad as if he was their own family member. Dad loved them equally.”
“Lyndal Maloney’s submission echoed other wonderful stories I had heard about the dedication and loving care from the staff at Arcare North Lakes,” he said.
“I wanted to ensure that they were recognised and thanked for their tireless work in caring fro our older Australians.”
Arcare North Lakes residence manager Christine Schlieff said the team felt honoured for the recognition.
“It is through their hard work that we are standing here today,” she said.
“We are grateful to Luke for making this award possible and recognising our team members who genuinely care about the support they provide and the work that they do.”
