CCDEU chairman Rev Shayne Blackman said assessors gave a resounding endorsement of the residential care facility and complimented staff and management for their achievements since CCDEU Ltd took administration on June 22, 2011.
Commendations were given on the immaculate grounds, cleanliness of the services, the strong clinical care systems and the overwhelming commitment from staff to delivering the highest quality of care in a culturally supportive manner.
Rev Blackman said the board was delighted with the endorsement from the Agency as it not only reflected the hard work of staff in gaining accreditation but respecting the rights of the region's elderly to accessing the best possible local care.
"It is important that when seeking aged care services, elders from across the Torres Strait and NPA have access to a first rate local facility so they are not forced to leave family and loved ones" said Rev Blackman.
"We are committed to ensuring the benefits of this service transpire locally in terms of employment, development and training.
"I am pleased to announce we are strengthening local employment with the Operational Coordinator being from the Torres Straits as are the majority of staff.
"I am equally delighted that CCDEU Ltd is currently supporting eight local staff to complete their nursing training which will translate into improved service outcomes.
"I commend everyone for getting behind this facility which will continue to be home to our elders," Rev Blackman said.
