Faith based, residential aged and community care provider, Baptistcare, received three High Commendations for the Categories of Organisation, Trainee and Employee Awards at the Aged and Community Services Western Australia (ACSWA) Excellence in Care Awards recently.

Baptistcare is a faith based, community benefit organisation which provides residential, community and home based services to older Australians, people living with disabilities, and people suffering from mental health illnesses and their families. It also operates a number of retirement villages.

Baptistcare received a High Commendation for the ACSWA Organisation Award for its innovative approach in meeting challenges on its culture. Baptistcare has redefined itself as a 21st century faith based community benefit organisation. It has seen an innovative and person centred approach impact every aspect of its organisational life.

Enrolled nurse, Tina Brunalli, received a High Commendation for the ACSWA Employee Award.

Ms Brunalli has worked at Baptistcare for 24 years and has been largely responsible for the introduction of a number of innovative and best practice programs at Gracewood residential aged care facility in Salter Point.

She excels in the person centred care  she provides to Baptistcare residents and has helped shape, strengthen and inspire her colleagues and clients.

Eighteen year old Rebecca Baseley, administration assistant at Baptistcare’s Support Services in Welshpool, was awarded a High Commendation for the ACSWA Trainee Award.

Ms Baseley undertook a Certificate 11 in Business through Central TAFE as part of a school based traineeship through Kent Street High School. She was also the Dux of three awards last year.

Baptistcare chief executive, Dr Lucy Morris, is proud of its staff and excited about Baptistcare’s future.

“It was a wonderful night and a great privilege to share the celebrations with people who work in aged services across WA; and, to have the opportunity to honour their contribution and commitment to caring for older Australians,” Dr Morris said.
