Noel & Maureen
We have been involved in Aged Care for 16yrs. Initially, Maureen worked on the Sunshine Coast with a specialised team providing care to enable residents to live well in a safe and friendly environment with the best possible care.
We worked to create relationships that set us apart from other facilities at the time. The residents, their family and friends from many walks of life were all considered part of the same community along with our staff.
As residents health declined we assisted with dressing, personal hygiene, mobility, and physical therapy, eating and drinking, taking care to create meals that were both nutritious and appropriate for those with special dietary needs.
The beautiful weather and relaxed lifestyle in Hervey Bay was the initial drawcard to New Horizons where we met some interesting seniors and have been living here ever since.
Drawing from our previous work experience we now find ourselves as onsite Managers at New Horizons for the last 9yrs
- Overseeing the kitchen as we pride ourselves in providing fresh home-cooked meals
- Residents welfare
- Residents security
- Activities and entertainment which include music, mahjong, card games, bingo, scrabble, foot massage, movies & happy hours, birthday celebrations, BBQ’s, shopping, hydrotherapy pool, chair exercises & tai chi. These are just some of the activities that we encourage our residents to become involved in.
Noel continues to oversee the village maintenance and our beautiful gardens whilst attending resident needs and commuting residents to shopping & appointments.
