White Oak Office at Mertome Aged Care & Retirement Village
Accessing in-home care just got simpler for residents of Mertome Aged Care & Retirement Village with White Oak operating an office from the facility every Wednesday.
General Manager Treasa Lonergan will be on-site on Wednesdays to help residents navigate the often complex aged care system and understand the various eligibility criteria and paperwork involved to access services.
A morning tea was held this morning to answer any questions residents may have and introduce the White Oak team to the residents.
Resident Tedi Young (pictured) who has lived at Mertome Village for 16 years welcomed the change.
"It makes it so easy for us having White Oak here, we can get all our questions answered quickly and we feel very supported," Tedi said.
White Oak is part of the Hall & Prior Health and Aged Care group; Hall and Prior took over management and operations of Mertome Aged Care & Retirement Village in April 2019.
