I have a degree in Packaging Engineering and Technology. I worked in that field for 16 years with some large multinational companies. When I decided to change direction, I saw an opportunity to apply my skills and experience to Operations Management and Administrative Support.
Twilight has been part of an important volunteer program with Multiple Sclerosis Limited (MS) that has greatly benefited residents. Known as the Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) and funded by the Australian Government, MS plays a vital role in providing companionship for people living in Aged Care Homes or living in their own homes and receiving care.
It’s been a busy social calendar this past quarter for residents of Twilight Aged Care, with musicals, morning teas, farewells and more. Our Recreational Activity Officers (RAOs) are always looking for ways to strengthen partnerships with community groups such as local schools as this brings mutual benefits to our residents and the community.
Twilight has some wonderful learning and education programs currently being rolled out. The ‘We Are Twilight’ series of workshops, facilitated by our Workplace Trainer, Geraldine Koh have been well attended and the results are already being noted throughout the homes with employees displaying a renewed sense of purpose and understanding of the four key Twilight values and their meaning. This is a mandatory training program which began in April and is carried out over two phases. Series 2 will begin next financial year and rollout will begin in 2018. Series 2 is about creating a ‘learning’ organisation.
Twilight warmly welcomes our newest staff members…
