25 people attended our Open House and AGM on the 8th November 2016. Our Founder & President, Diane Wright presented the Annual Report, quoting our Hospice Manager Karen Eccles, ‘We ended the 2015-2016 financial year almost doubling the amount of service to guests that we provided the previous year. Overnight care was provided 243 nights to 46 guests and their families. Day Hospice also continues to be popular and provided regular support over 142 days and 340 attendees to 20 guests and their families who are living with long term illnesses and full time care’.
Our guest speaker Diana Taylor (Chairperson of Anam Cara Geelong) impressed us with her interactive presentation, while we enjoyed delicious refreshments provided by Jane Nicholson (one of our lovely RNs).
We are sad to announce the resignation of Mrs Judy Davis from the Committee of Management. Judy is an extremely valued inaugural member and served as our secretary for many years. Her input in all areas cannot be underestimated. We wish Judy and her husband Len all the very best as they move to their new home in Point Lonsdale.
Please join us in welcoming Dr Akram Alkurd of Corangamite Clinic to our Committee of Management. His professional, clinical skills and experience will be most beneficial and we look forward to working with him.
