The transition to new owners, Apollo Care, has been positive for Alexandra Gardens and we are already seeing the benefits of the many enhancements being made.
Apollo Care’s CEO, Stephen Besci and COO, Barry Ashcroft visited our community in August. During this visit, they toured the site, met residents, had initial discussions about potential refurbishments, and talked openly with staff about their roles, responsibilities, and any concerns.
Apollo’s award-winning staff culture program that was introduced late last year is gaining momentum and continues to support us to work together to put residents first. Here are some recent staff testimonials that showcase what it’s like working at Alexandra Gardens:
“Every day is rewarding because the care and services we provide makes a positive difference to the residents, and their families and friends.”
“The residents are so important to us. It is our honour and privilege to provide them with the care and services they need.”
“This is a very fulfilling job. All the team members are caring and friendly. The best part about working here is helping the residents live their best life.”
Over the next few months, we look forward to reporting on mobile care technology enhancements, including Nurse call systems and improved shared access to clinical care plans and communication.
