UPA Home Care North Coast Wins Best in Aged Care & Wellbeing
UPA HOME CARE North Coast has been named the best in Aged Care & Wellbeing, winning the award at the Ballina Business Excellence Awards on the weekend.
Kim Ryall-Manley, UPA North Coast Home Care Manager, said that she and the entire team were delighted for the recognition.
“We work very hard for our clients and their families,” said Kim. “They come first, always, and so for the organisation to win this award, it’s really special for all of us.”
UPA has been in the Care Services Industry for over 75 years and is a not-for-profit charity organisation. The community is at the heart of everything they do, so it’s no surprise that on Saturday night UPA Home Care took out the award.
“We cater for a vast range of peoples’ needs and provide all levels of Home Care Packages throughout the North Coast Region,” said Kim. “From personal care, to cleaning, meal preparation, shopping, transport, activities and so much more.”
The Ballina Shire Northern Star Business Excellence program is designed to recognise and reward excellence in business, foster innovation, and encourage a focus on sustainability, corporate citizenship and safe work practices. The awards also provide an annual opportunity for traders to review systems and undertake operational improvements.
UPA Home Care was the Aged Care & Wellbeing winner judged on their business practices, operations & systems, workplace health & safety, how they overcome business difficulties, how they operate in a competitive environment, their community support and their charitable initiatives.
Kim said that UPA’s services really empower independence, so that older people can continue to do the things they love.
To find out if you are eligible for a Home Care Package, you simply need to call and speak with one of UPA’s award-winning Personal Support Coordinators and they can help you through the process of registration, assessment and referral.
“We’d love to show more people why we won the award,” said Kim. “It’s all centred around our values and honest, reliable care.”
