Newcross News Issue 9 - Autumn 2016

Have you noticed we’ve given Newcross News a re-boot for the latest issue? We’ve listened to your feedback and evolved your magazine so it’s more interesting, informative and fun. There are new features to discover including practical tips when caring for someone with dementia and how to be food smart at work.

This month we recognise the contribution of the longest serving Newcross staff members. Those of you who have been with us for over 5, 10 and 15 years have received special awards as a small gesture of thanks for your dedication and service.

Meeting one particular award-winner, Ivy Davenport, was especially poignant. I had the pleasure of interviewing her in the Torquay branch 15 years ago!

We also recognise our healthcare heroes this month as we say a heartfelt thank you and well done to Zibby Kruk (HCA) and Sandra Watson (RGN) for their excellence in care. You have exemplified the standard of care we originally dreamed of when Newcross began, and on behalf of the clients you’ve worked with, thank you.

It’s testament to each and every one of you who uphold the vision of excellence in care that Stephen and I imagined originally, Newcross has grown to over 50 branches and over 5,500 staff. These 20 years have been a fantastic journey and I’m immensely proud. Here’s to the next 20 years!
