Twilight Aged Care is one of Sydney’s longest-standing boutique aged care providers. Established in 1915 by a group of influential women, the home initially provided accommodation for educated, professional women who needed quality care in their twilight years.
Over a century later, Twilight Aged Care continues to be highly respected for its high quality residential aged care services, providing accommodation for 160 men and women in various homes in the north Sydney area. And this year, the not-for-profit aged care provider is looking to appoint a new CEO to take the organisation through to the next phase of growth. Not-for-profit sector recruitment specialist NGO Recruitment has been appointed to lead the search campaign.
According to Twilight Aged Care Chair Lorraine Lovitt, there has never been a more interesting or rewarding time to join the organisation and become a valued leader in the dynamic aged care space.
“This is a unique opportunity to join an established, boutique aged care provider with a long history of providing exceptional aged care services to our valued residents,” Lovitt says.“We are looking for someone who can demonstrate high levels of leadership and drive the development of our services and capital works programs. And we also need someone who’s a visionary in terms of looking for opportunities for growth as we enter a period of change.”
With an ever-evolving, progressive aged care environment in Australia, and as older people remain in their homes for longer, Lovitt is looking for someone highly experienced at developing aged care services, especially around palliative and respite care, and diversifying income opportunities.
“We need to be agile and responsive to the needs of our residents and flexible when it comes to the changing aged care service delivery agenda into the future. Our new CEO needs to work with the board to determine how we respond and grow in this environment so we remain strong and viable in the communities we serve,” she says.“The ideal candidate will also have advanced advocacy, marketing and networking skills to be able to build upon our external relationships, promote our services and look for opportunities to engage with the broader sector.”
The new CEO will oversee a dedicated team of 160 employees across four homes in the northern suburbs of Sydney. The redevelopment of a fifth home in Beecroft is currently under consideration.
With an inspirational patron, a talented board, a cohesive corporate executive team and a loyal group of case service, facility and business support managers, Twilight Aged Care has an exceptionally strong workplace culture.
“The first priority for any new CEO would be to meet all of our staff, to work closely with them to gain a true understanding of their value and skills within the organisation. This is critical to gaining trust, and being able to delegate effectively will ultimately lead to success in the role. Working together will enable us to develop our strategic plan for the future.”
