Tribute paid to 'learned and loved older Australians'
Retiring chief executive Mr Shane Neaves has paid tribute to the residents of Peninsula Villages during his time in the role.
"It has been a wonderful community to work with and for, and my time here is reflective of the happiest and most satisfying period of my professional life.
"Peninsula Villages is a progressive community organisation with a real purpose - a happy place where each person contributes to the general wellbeing of others.
"I feel privileged to have been an integral part since my earlier stay in 2010 and my return in 2015.
"There are many occasions when I reflect on the pride I have felt at seeing our residents enjoy their later years.
"It has been a joy and privilege to be part of this organisation's journey and I thank you all for entrusting me with your care and lifestyle.
"It is with much gratitude, for all you have given me, I truly wish you all good health and every success into the future.
"I would like to acknowledge the support that I have had from the board, the leadership team, the fine, talented and caring staff, the community, the volunteers, and you - those learned and loved older Australians, full of life experiences and kinship.
"However the time has come to hand the baton over, knowing the organisation is well prepared for the coming years. I wish you all every success.
