Building communities where people feel they belong is at the heart of everything Carinity does.
While 2021 provided an environment of uncertainty for many, I am pleased to report that Carinity has continued to foster connections with our communities and the customers who use our wide range of services.
The official opening of Carinity Education Shalom, our school in Townsville, was a wonderful example of how our outreach services can build communities and make them stronger. It is a privilege to hear students and parents speak of how the school transcends a traditional educational environment and provides a sense of community, culture and family that they have not experienced in mainstream schooling.
Our passionate home care teams have worked hard to not only provide care to customers living independently in their own homes, but also helped ease the mental health challenges posed by the pandemic by providing customers a sense of connection to their community through social outings and activities.
In our aged care communities, residents have continued to receive personalised, high-quality levels of care. While State Government-imposed lockdowns have limited the ability of family members and friends to visit our residents at times, we have strived to ensure we provide an environment where residents can continue living a life with purpose.
I hope the Christmas and New Year period provided you with an opportunity to reunite and reconnect with loved ones. After such a challenging year, it was a fitting opportunity to give thanks to God for all his gifts to us, especially his greatest gift – the birth of Jesus Christ.
JON CAMPBELL, Carinity CEO
