The clinical care of residents across all Twilight facilities has had a substantial boost with the appointment of a roving weekend Registered Nurse.

Twilight’s new RN, Suresh Kiorala, is now visiting each Twilight home on Saturdays and Sundays to ensure all residents receive timely and appropriate clinical care.

Having a registered nurse available to attend each home has the potential to decrease the need for hospital transfers. Care staff also feel more supported as do our Managers, who can be assured of appropriate assessments for all residents over the weekend.

We have also recently increased the amount of physiotherapy available to improve pain management and mobility of residents. The increase will allow our residents to have regular massage, ultrasound or TENS to help alleviate any pain associated with the many arthritic and degenerative conditions that may be suffered as we age.

Physiotherapist, Cameron, and his team are well known to our residents and those who have received the extra services are very happy with the results.
