Activities team nominated for industry award
The activities team at a local aged care home is being nominated for an industry award.
The team at BlueWave Living in Woy Woy has been nominated for its focus on animal therapy, said chief executive Mr Matt Downie.
"It is wonderful to watch the interaction between our residents and the animals and pets which visit our facility," he said.
"Many residents relate to stories in their lives with various animals, from horses to dogs, turtles to chickens, alpacas to rabbits."
Mr Downie said he recently attended the volunteers awards, Ms Ruth Collins was nominated for contributing over 30 years of volunteer service to BlueWave Living - "from before the organisation was born, through until current".
"Ruth was a board member for the majority of those years and continues to be an advocate for our Elders in Care here."
Mr Downie said he had congratulated Ms Collins on her nomination and had thanked her for "her extraordinary contribution to BlueWave Living".
He said all our BlueWave Living volunteers "make the world of difference to our Elders in Care".
