Twilight Facility Manager, Clare Banister-Jones and her colleagues in the PAC4RAC project – Providing Appropriate Care for Residents in Aged Care – have now completed the formal/theoretical part of the
programme.

All three students graduated from the University of Tasmania with a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Redesign and were presented with their award by the NSW Minister for Health, the Honourable Jillian Skinner MP, in a graduation ceremony at The Mint in December last year.

Twilight Aged Care, NSW Ambulance, along with Northern Sydney Local Health District are committed to providing ‘The Right Care at the Right Time in the Right Place’ to the residents in Twilight Aged Care. Twilight’s new Facility Manager at Glengarry, Tanya Sourian, will also join also the PAC4RAC project in 2017.
