Information evening at Montefiore
Sydney’s Sir Moses Montefiore Jewish Home recently hosted a community information evening at its Randwick Campus in an open forum to help address some of the complex questions it receives in relation to the provision of aged care services.
Over 130 people attended, most of whom were new to Montefiore, to find out the necessary information either for themselves or for members of their family.
The panel of Montefiore experts included David Freeman, President of Montefiore; Robert Orie, CEO; Melanie Lindenberg, Director of Client and Community Relations; Karen Jordan, General Manager of Community Services and Justine Spies, Group Residential Accommodation Manager.
Topics ranged from the types of aged care services and support available, the cost of care, how services can be accessed, aged care legislation and the recent home care deregulation. Visual presentations clearly supporting and outlining the steps which lead to residential accommodation at Montefiore or home care services, the exciting plans for the next stage of building including independent living units, were also shown.
CEO, Robert Orie said, “The evening was a great success and well represented by the community. Attendees were complimentary of the information they gained and now have a better understanding of our organisation, the services we provide and our industry in general.”
Information packs and brochures were available for people to take home.
