Well done to our Jimbelunga residents who took out a string of awards at the Beenleigh Show on the weekend.

Competing in a range of sections including vegetables, flowers and craft, they took out a First and two Second places for their flowers and a Second place in the vegetable section.
Several residents also won ‘First’ place awards in the craft section.

A great day was had by all with morning tea, a train ride and we even had a go on the clowns in sideshow alley.

A bit of rain didn’t stop our NAIDOC celebrations at Jimbelunga Nursing Centre

A bit of rain didn’t stop our NAIDOC celebrations at Jimbelunga Nursing Centre. Lucky we had a plan B. Residents, families and staff enjoyed a great day and special thanks to radio 98.9fm for coming along. The outside broadcast was a bit hit as well as the great tunes they pumped out on the day. Former ATSICHS director John Lesley (pictured above) was spotted in the crowd as he checked out his grandchildren who performed on the day. It was great to see our nursing staff getting into the NAIDOC spirit with face painting.

Thanks to 98.9fm For the Best Country for coming along and pumping out some great tunes.
Karen, Uncle Pete and Boe were there broadcasting live from 10am until 2pm. Did you hear the shout outs?

We went along to catch up on all the action with 989.9FM Crew as they celebrated NAIDOC week at Jimbelunga. Have a listen to what they said.

Jimbelunga Excellence in Age Service Awards

Congratulations to Jimbelunga who were one of three Queensland finalist in the Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) Excellence in Age Services Awards 2018, Team Award.

The award recognises a team, in the aged services sector that has created an environment that encourages workplace diversity, positive workplace culture and increased staff wellbeing through development of a service or process or has used innovation and initiative to improve the lives of older people and improve the age services experience.

Renee Cole and Belinda Davies accepted on ATSICHS Brisbane’s behalf at the Queensland dinner. The national awards will be announced at the LASA National Congress in October 2018.

Well done to the whole team at Jimbelunga. The resident’s families also seem to really appreciate what the team does as well going by one of their latest reviews:

“Thank you to all staff that cared for my mother during her 8 year stay . Every time I visited the RESPECT and love the staff had for mum was outstanding. If there was ever an Olympic games for aged care you guys would win gold. Much love.”
