Lyndoch Living is proud to announce it has been named as a finalist in three categories for the 2020 innovAGEING National Awards.

Lyndoch has been nominated for:

Age Services Innovator of the Year Award – CEO Doreen Power
Improving Consumer Choice – Lyndoch Living
Increasing Care and Productivity – Lyndoch Living

Lyndoch Living Board President, Ms Sue Cassidy said it’s an honour for Lyndoch Living to be nominated, and to be a finalist in three categories is just fantastic.

In the current environment, workforce and models of care are in the spotlight. It is exciting for Lyndoch to be able to highlight our social model of care and to be recognised for innovative thinking,” Ms Cassidy said

Chief Executive Officer, Ms Doreen Power stated, there is a move away from the traditional task-orientated model and a focus on really listening to the consumers, taking their life experiences and knowledge into account, and including their families in their care and service choices. 

“The team has actively embraced this way of thinking. We have turned the concept of ageing into the idea of living well and living healthy for our consumers that enhances their experience through individual choice, as one size does not fit all,” Ms Power said.

One of the key motivators for innovAGEING is to showcase innovation in the sector and highlight and communicate these across the country.

Head of innovAGEING, Merlin Kong stated, we are acknowledging the hard work the sector has achieved and how innovative it is, to make ageing better for Australians. 

“When we look at growing older in the best way – with the various government reforms at play, the technology available to us at the moment and changing service demands and productivity pressures – innovation is critically important.

“Innovation touches on everything that the sector is going through, as we work to spread excellence and transformation, to cement Australia as a world leader in better ageing,” Mr Kong said

The innovAGEING National Awards announcing the winners will be held virtually on 26 November 2020.
