Corporate First Aid Australia would like to congratulate local organisation, Wattle Hill Care for their recent prestigious WA Regional Achievement and Community Award.
Wattle Hill Care, a not-for-profit retirement village and residential aged care facility creates 100 local jobs and supports 62 residents. Wattle Hill Care demonstrates in practical ways their commitment to their employees by providing flexible staff rosters, a staff incentive program and internal and external training. The inclusion of the Prime Super – Employer Excellence in Aged Care award, into the WA Regional Achievement and Community Awards is a timely inclusion.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, West Australia will experience the largest percentage increase in population between 2012 – 2061, more than doubling the 2012 population of 2.14 million to 6.4 million by 2061. During this time, those aged 65 and over will increase by four times and those aged 85 and over will increase by more than six times.
Corporate First Aid Australia and Wattle Hill Care share not only a commitment to ensuring that the communities of the South West region are supported by high quality community services and health workers, but an employee who works for both organisations. We know first hand the quality of Wattle Hill Care staff.
Wattle Hill Care’s commitment to embracing technology and proactively fund raising has resulted in the purchase of PARO, an $8000.00 advanced interactive therapeutic robot designed to stimulate patients with Dementia.
