Known as Logan’s ‘night of nights’ the 2018 Business Distinction Awards was held at the Logan Entertainment Centre on Friday July 20, 2018.
This year’s event was the first combined Logan Chamber of Commerce event in some time and attracted more than 350 nominations and 100 applications across 23 categories.
Seasons Waterford West was chosen as the only finalist in the Retirement Services & Accommodation category, and Community Manager Barbara Booth said the win meant a lot for both the residents and staff.
“It was an honour just to be recognised with a nomination, but winning the award is an amazing achievement. The teamwork shown by our excellent staff members is certainly a winning combination,” says Barbara.
To be considered for the award, each nominee had to complete an award application which covered a general business overview, business development strategies, marketing, customer service, community contribution and demonstrate what makes their business stand out within their industry.
Barbara says that Seasons Waterford’s West unique aged care model and community feel is what sets it apart from other aged care providers.
“While there are many differences that set Seasons Waterford West apart in our industry, the primary factor that helps us to stand out is one word – passion,” says Barbara.
“The key community staff at Waterford West have been here since the beginning and the passion they have for their job flows right through the community and on to the residents. Our staff regularly go above and beyond to make sure that not only are our resident’s physical needs taken care of but that their social, emotional and spiritual needs are fulfilled and that they have a whole heap of fun along the way.
“In turn, our residents become passionate advocates for their community and freely talk about how moving to Seasons is one of the best decisions they have made. This is not a statement many people think of when they think of aged care.”
“It’s a real thrill to everyone both working and living here to have our community recognised within the wider Logan region.”
