Chief Executive Officer Update

Trevor Patti, Chief Executive Officer

The last few months have flown by yet again. St Paul’s as an organisation has been focused heavily on a number of topics over the last few months. We have been preparing for what is a very deadly flu season. There has been plenty of media coverage about how bad Influenza has been very early in the flu season.  We have been fortunate that no cases have hit our organisation thus far.

We have also been placing a strong focus on Staff health and wellbeing and are currently working on implementing a dementia friendly community initiative in conjunction with our local MP and the Hahndorf Business and
Tourism Group to make a safe community for people living with dementia and allow them more independence.

Watch this space there is a lot going on. Hope all of you and your families are well.

October and November have been periods of significant change within St Paul’s and certainly a very busy month for the Aged Care Sector.

Below is a communication, issued on November 4th, from the Chair of the St Paul’s Board to Residents, families and friends of St Paul’s.                                

 Organizational Announcement.

 The Board of Directors has the responsibility to ensure that all operational and governance aspects of St Paul’s are functioning at a high level, delivering the right outcomes for our residents, families, the community and our staff.

 In recognizing the changing requirements and expectations of the Aged Care and Retirement Living sectors now and into the future, a comprehensive and thorough review of the organizational structure of St Paul’s Lutheran Homes has been undertaken by the Board of Directors.

 After thorough consideration I am pleased to announce the following changes to the Organizational structure of St Paul’s which became effective on the 31st of October 2019.

  •  Mel Pagliarulo has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer and Board Director and will move into the newly created and important role of Manager Residential Aged Care.
  • Trevor Patti will move into the role of Chief Executive Office and continue as an Executive Board Director.
  • Sophie Bretag, People and Culture Manager will expand her responsibilities, taking ownership of Hospitality Services
  • The duties of the Clinical Services Manager will be absorbed into the role of Manager Residential Aged Care.

The Board believes that these changes will position St Paul’s well to meet the challenges of the future and strengthen our ability to consistently deliver on our mission: “To improve the health and wellbeing of our older community through care, services and accommodation”.

 Your sincerely,

 Michael Gladigau
