The best in QLD!
Feros Care has just been announced as the top Aged Care organisation in QLD, at the industry’s peak body conference on the Gold Coast last night.
Feros Care claimed Aged Care QLD’s Excellence in Care – Organisation of the Year Award for their innovative technology systems and framework including:
- The implementation of LifeLink, one of Australia’s first ever main-streamed aged care telehealthcare services (including both telecare smart homes and telehealth implementations)
- State-of-the-art IT infrastructure as the backbone of the organisation
- The creation of Feros Care’s unique Community Care Gateway (a centralised contact and referral centre for all of our community care programs stretching 1000kms).
Feros Care’s CEO Jennene Buckley said it was an honour to be awarded this highly sought after title, but more importantly thanked all the staff who worked hard to support senior Queenslanders.
“We have built our reputation through the dedication, commitment and shared values of our employees, managers and volunteers who have a passion for working with seniors and see it as a privilege to do so,” Ms Buckley said.
Feros Care also claimed the Sustainability Award (Waste) for reducing resource waste through the Gateway and the organisation’s General Manager of Community Services, Gabriele Taylor, was ‘Highly Commended’ as a finalist in the Employee of the Year Award (Gabriele has been instrumental in overseeing the organisation’s expansion into ‘in home’ care and the Gateway).
