FOR res­i­dents and staff at For­est View it is a sad time as their beloved CEO Jenny Nixon said her fi­nal good­byes and stepped away from her po­si­tion at the aged care fa­cil­ity.

Mrs Nixon’s nurs­ing ca­reer at the fa­cil­ity started back in Au­gust 1993 as a care su­per­vi­sor and within 12 months she was pro­moted to the po­si­tion of gen­eral man­ager.

The fa­cil­ity has grown and she has seen and made many changes over the years.

For­est View present Robyn Philpot said the en­tire board would like to com­mend Mrs Nixon for all her hard work and the tire­less ded­i­ca­tion she had shown to all the res­i­dents.

“Mrs Nixon has been with For­est View since the early ’90s and we thank her for se­cur­ing fund­ing and for all the im­prove­ments and en­hance­ments to the fa­cil­ity and its res­i­dents,” Mrs Philpot said.

“We can’t thank her enough for the ac­cred­i­ta­tion she at­tained for the var­i­ous fa­cil­i­ties and the pro­vi­sion of ex­ter­nal ser­vices for res­i­dents of the fa­cil­ity.

“Most im­por­tant is the tone and cul­ture of the fa­cil­ity. All vis­i­tors to For­est View com­pli­ment the fa­cil­ity on the fam­ily and home-style at­mos­phere where res­i­dents are treated with dig­nity and re­spect.”

For­est View has grown and de­vel­oped over the years due to the ef­forts of Mrs Nixon.

“The board wishes to thank Jenny for her ded­i­ca­tion and ser­vice to Aged Care in the Isis District,” Mrs Philpot said.

“She can be jus­ti­fi­ably proud of what she has achieved and we wish her all the best in her new chap­ter.”
