Leisure and lifestyle team makes awards final

Staff at Woy Woy’s BlueWave Living have been recognised for their efforts and hard work in a state-wide awards ceremony aimed at celebrating excellence across the age services industry.

BlueWave Living’s Leisure and Lifestyle team were nominated as finalists in this year’s Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) Excellence in Age Services Awards.

Marketing officer at Bluewave Living, Kylie Scott, said the team was recognised for its effort in delivering the BlueWave activities program.

“The nomination recognises the entire activities program we have here, but our animal therapy program is the highlight,” Scott said.

“The nomination is more about the recognition for what they do – they really do go above and beyond.”

LASA said the Team Award aimed to recognise a team that “demonstrated excellence through a significant initiative or contribution that improved the lives of older people through the delivery of care and services, including or provision of high-level support services through innovation, leadership and person-centred care”.

Judging criteria also extended to teams that embodied “a culture of enthusiasm, positivity and caring”.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, August 7 in an online awards presentation.

Videos of the activities programs held at BlueWave Living, including their animal therapy program, can be found on the organisation’s YouTube channel.
