The Shoreline Residential Aged Care in Coffs Harbour has welcomed Owen Lednor as its new Director of Care.
Lednor will be responsible for developing The Shoreline’s objectives of providing an innovative and state of the art care culture, that will provide the local community with the highest level of care and support.
Property owner The Bachrach Naumburger Group says The Shoreline will offer premium aged care and a senior living environment designed to create a sense of home.
Lednor has an extensive background in aged care and nursing, having previously worked with aged care and retirement living provider NVC Group as Business Development Manager and previously education and quality co-ordinator, community care co-ordinator, registered nurse, relief facility manager and relief clinical care co-ordinator.
He also has a background in marketing and business administration having worked and studied at Southern Cross University and Campus Living Villages Limited.
In addition, Lednor has been a volunteer with St John Ambulance NSW as a registered nurse since 2016, including the Far North Coast Hub Leader.
He managed the operations of three St John Divisions from Port Macquarie to Lismore and up to Queensland Border.
Within this role he actively participated and supported St John NSW’s response to the 2019 Bushfires in which they provided medical care to the local communities at evacuation centres and fire and rescue bases of operations.
Having lived on the Mid North Coast all of his life, Lednor moved to Coffs Harbour in 2015 to study and find new opportunities and has a clear passion and natural affinity for aged care.
“This industry is not only extremely interesting, but the people we deliver care for are from such fascinating and diverse backgrounds,” he says.
“I truly see aged care as an area of specialisation as the people that access our services don’t want the same care that everyone else gets, they want care that is individualised to them and their values.
“I see so many people who work in aged care providing incredible levels of care, and I look forward to this role, as I get the chance to celebrate those excellent individuals through developing a high-quality and exciting model of care that support both our residents and our staff.”
“I am very excited to say that we are rapidly striving toward an innovative and state of the art care culture, that will definitely provide those in our local community with the highest level of care and support.
“I have a considerable amount of work ahead of me as we intend to be the leaders in ageing excellence.”
