Cooinda provides a range of services including community care, independent living, semi independent living as well as residential care to 78 residents
Originally established in the 1970's by a group of local people to provide care for ageing community members, Cooinda has grown to become one of the regions largest employers with over 100 staff members.
The Governance of Cooinda is provided by a volunteer Board of Directors who focus on planning for provision of a high quality and diverse range of services to the community and surrounding towns. Community relationships are very important to Cooinda and as such, it has supported the organisation from its early days and continues to do so into the future.
Management in Cooinda is undertaken by a Management Team led by a General Manager. The team focusses on providing day to day management of all areas of the facility with expertise in nursing management, business and financial management and human resource management.
Residents and their representatives can be assured that Cooinda's processes and systems provide the highest level of care possible.
Cooinda is an accredited facility participating fully in a Continuous Quality Improvement Program and as a registered charity relies on support from the community and grants and funding from the Department of Social Services in order to provide services.
