RetireAustralia invests in care services in South Australia
Written by: Ron Reed

RetireAustralia has invested in care services in its South Australian villages with the appointment of Clinical Advisor Lisa Wood.

The move follows appointments to the newly created positions of National Services Manager and Care Coordinator (South Australia) last year.

Lisa is part of an expanding team overseeing the progressive rollout of care and support services across the company’s 27 communities in three states. A former RN, she has extensive experience overseeing home care packages, providing clinical advice and support, auditing care processes, and writing policies and procedures.

In her first two weeks with the company, Lisa has enjoyed meeting residents and colleagues and visiting a number of villages.

“Everyone has been most welcoming, and I’m really enjoying my new position,” she said. “The staff are really passionate about what they do and genuinely care about the residents and each other.”

Lisa, who lives in the Adelaide Hills with her husband and two cats, said she is looking forward to getting to know the village teams better and offering assistance across all RetireAustralia’s South Australian villages.

General Manager of Care and Operations, Brigid London, said the appointment is indicative of RetireAustralia’s continuing dedication to care services. “Our range of home care services continues to expand following a successful trial,” she said. “We are excited to have Lisa on board to assist this process.”
