The Annual Regis National Awards celebrates our dedicated staff who exceed stakeholder exceptions and levels of care that we offer at Regis. The Volunteer of the Year Award recognises the vital role that volunteers play in our resident’s quality of life, by providing support for their well-being, self-esteem and personal fulfilment through a social and creative environment.

Anne, one of this year’s finalists, is more than a volunteer and sister to resident Joanne. She is their emotional support, an expert gardener, a fantastic lifestyle helper and a fabulous cook. She makes residents feel loved through a variety of activities and initiatives, including making vests for inter-facility sports days, bringing flowers in and making them jams from Milpara’s homegrown produce.

We will announce the winners of 2018’s Regis National Awards on Friday 16 November.
