Social Networking physio Frank Naso honoured for getting people together
Frank Naso - Director of Wellness and Enablement is one of five finalists in the Individual Distinction category of the 2015 Hesta Aged Care Awards. The Awards recognize those who make an exceptional contribution to improving the quality of life of older Australians.
"In the past 12 months, we have created a multi-focused lifestyle and wellness program which allows residents to regain their mobility and sense of community" Mr Naso said.
"We set up a gym to cater for the exercise goals of each resident and now more than 30 residents are active members of the gym, which has become a centre for daily socialising.
"Ten residents who were previously confined to their beds or chairs have regained mobility, while a stroke sufferer has regained movement in his arm giving him the confidence to join in other social activities."
Access to the gym and the fitness program has been extended to staff and volunteers who share the same facilities, further helping to unify the community and make residents feel less isolated.
The winners will be revealed at the Hesta Aged Care Awards dinner on Thursday 27th August in Can
