On January 31st, Fresh Hope Communities transferred ownership and operation of The Glen Residential Care Service to Goodwin Aged Care Services.
Scott Griffiths and Lynn Bailey, travelled down to Bateman’s Bay to meet up with the staff and residents and Goodwin’s team.
Goodwin CEO, Stephen Holmes said that it has been a long-term goal of the Canberra-based organisation to extend services to the NSW south coast.
‘Goodwin has always had a strong relationship with the Eurobodalla region. Many of our residents have moved into our Canberra residential care facilities having previously lived at the coast. Said Mr Holmes. The purchase of The Glen now means that seniors in the region who are looking to receive the quality of care that we offer can remain living in their community.
‘Fresh Hope Communities and the team at The Glen have done an excellent job in managing the facility to a high standard. We are fortunate that the existing staff will remain working at The Glen and have been working hard during the transition process to minimise disruption to staff and residents.’
Scott and Lynn were both pleased with the handover on the day to the Goodwin team and wish everyone well for the future.
CEO Dan Dwyer also added his heartfelt thanks and appreciation.
‘We would like to commend our staff for their dedication and service to the residents and families of The Glen Residential Care Service. We are grateful for all their hard work and commitment.
‘We will miss the staff, residents and families but we are sure that the transition of The Glen into Goodwin’s ownership and care will be a great outcome for the residents, families, staff and the broader community.’
