A POS­I­TIVE out­look is on dis­play for Monto’s Ridge­haven Re­tire­ment Com­plex.

The group held its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and mem­bers’ din­ner re­cently.

There was no change in the board and a profit was recorded, de­spite be­ing a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Pres­i­dent Paul Lobegeier said aged care was not easy and the staff de­served to be com­mended for their ef­forts.

“I have enor­mous ad­mi­ra­tion for the level of ded­i­ca­tion from the staff in a very de­mand­ing job,” he said.

Monto’s ag­ing de­mo­graphic is re­flected in a large wait­ing list for Ridge­haven. Ad­mis­sions are ac­cepted on a needs ba­sis. The Ridge­haven board is cur­rently wait­ing for the next round of Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment fund­ing to reach its tar­get of 40 beds.
