The winner of our non-registered staff award had a clear goal to demonstrate CHT’s five pillars of care by enhancing residents’ dining experience. The report described a number of initiatives that were carefully planned to encourage residents to interact with each other at meal times, tips for care staff on how to deal sensitively with individual needs and advice on creating an environment that was conducive to an enjoyable designing experience.
Congratulations to Carol Jennings, Health Care Assistant at CHT St John’s for an excellent initiative and winner of the non-registered staff Focus on Care Award.

The aged care sector is one of the fastest growing areas of employment in New Zealand. With our population aging rapidly and with increasing ethnic diversity in our society, there are many rewarding opportunities and challenges from working in aged care.
