Business View Australia - November-December 2015

When you drive down the street you see

this big blue wave and that’s BlueWave


The facility has taken a number of

steps to ensure the comfort of its

residents. All the four-bedroom units

have been converted to accommodate

only two residents each. This change

was implemented in November 2014.

BlueWave Living is required to undergo

an accreditation process every three

years. The most recent such exercise

was conducted in June 2015 when the

facility was awarded a perfect score

and received glowing reports from all

its assessors.

Dedicated and well-trained


BlueWave Living has a stringent

selection process and its staff is

recruited only after a thorough

screening and interview procedure.

The organisation’s employees include

a management team, administration

staff, registered nurses, certificate 3

and 4 nurses, cleaners and laundry,

catering and maintenance staff.

Jennifer Eddy says, ““We have over

100 staff and we are a very close-knit

community. We have a very high staff

retention and high staff morale. We are

a really happy and supportive team.

We have a reputation for being one of

the best aged care facilities. We have

a long waiting list and a lot of people

who are on that list only want to come

to BlueWave Living.

As we are a not-for-profit organisation

we put our resources back into resident

care. We get a lot of community support

and we have been able to provide

activities and services because of this.”
