Facility and Deputy Managers

Our Facility and Deputy Managers embody the very heart of our care homes. They have a passion and commitment for working in aged care and supporting older people to live their best life possible.

Leading from the HEART

With a strong clinical care background and commitment to our HEART values of Honesty, Empathy, Acceptance, Respect and Teamwork, they oversee the delivery of quality care, governance, staff and facility operations. This is a role that has a true impact on the lives of so many.

Caring is a state of mind. Our Managers are always switched on to make things better. They notice the little things, despite their busy day.

Our CEO, General Manager of Care and Regional Managers are Registered Nurses and former Managers. Having walked in your shoes, they understand the many rewards, challenges and opportunities that leading a home can bring.

“A highlight of the day is when I walk around our homes chatting to residents, families and staff. I am so proud when families and residents share stories about our staff, always stepping up and going above and beyond."
Gaynor Squillacioti, General Manager for Care
