This truly is an exciting time to be part of a community centered business that has so much potential in a continually growing market. The ageing demographics of Australia’s population means there is an increased need for quality aged care and as a highly progressive organisation, Care Options is extremely well positioned to respond to the growing demand for aged care services.
These past 12 months have seen Care Options be true to our Mission, Vision and Values and align our business with our strategic plan. With 19 years experience, we continue to provide services that enable people to live independently and participate in their community. The increase in choice and control for people is a change we are actively preparing for and this past year has resulted in a number of initiatives implemented within our organisation.
One of the remarkable attributes of Care Options is our agility and the absolute commitment from our entire workforce towards our Vision. We have built considerable capacity, including staff and system capability, business intelligence and a positive organizational culture. We have also achieved an unprecedented end of year financial position which will allow us to re-invest in further development of our care provision programs.
We saw the recruitment of four new board members in 2015 who have contributed new knowledge and skills to the team and are going to be pivotal in continuing to grow our organization.
Our foundation for growth is strong and I look forward to the continued success of Care Options as we seek to expand our footprint and establish new services aligning to our mission, vision and values.
Thank you to everyone for another great year for Care Options.
