Client Relationship Officers

OneCare has 3 wonderful Client Relationship Officers (CRO) in Tasmania—
Anne Connors, Judy Radford and Kirsty Hall.  

Your Client Relationship Officer is your dedicated contact person, whether you have a family member who is a current OneCare resident, or you’re seeking care for a loved one in the future.

Whatever your situation, our CROs work closely with you to help find the services that best suit your needs—whether that’s a permanent placement in one of our welcoming OneCare facilities, a home care package or an Independent Living Unit.

Choosing the right aged care accommodation is a very personal and individual process—for families and residents. It’s hard to know what to expect until you begin your explorations, and that’s why your CRO will be right there to provide support, guidance and a friendly face during the important decision-making and transition period.

Supporting someone you love as they make the transition to aged care can be a stressful time for everyone. Anne, Judy and Kirsty are here to help guide you through each step and make your experience as smooth as possible.

Awards

Steven Elliston

Volunteer at Bishop Davies Court 

Steven Elliston has been recognised as Kingborough’s Young Citizen of the Year for his outstanding commitment and inspirational enthusiasm as a volunteer, particularly in service to older members of our community. Although Steven lives with a disability, this has not deterred him from being a dedicated volunteer. His experience enables him to understand
and appreciate the needs of others, providing personalised assistance and inspirational motivation.

Nomination information:  Steven Elliston, Young Citizen of the Year
An enthusiastic volunteer, Steven has provided support and friendship to the residents and staff of Bishop Davies Court, a residential care facility in Kingston, over the past two and a half years. He is always willing to help any staff member and is always on hand to provide social support and comfort to residents. As well as his normal duties at the facility, Steven loves to spend time with residents – sharing uplifting stories or just sitting and listening to their experiences. He also helps to run activities and functions for the residents.

At the recent Christmas function, where Steven greeted everyone at the door and gave out Christmas gifts, residents and family were delighted to see Steven being awarded their Volunteer of the Year Award. The respect and admiration for his ability to befriend and care for residents is obvious and he is a highly valued member of the team. He is the only volunteer to have received their Star of the Year Award, which was presented to Steven in 2017.

A cricket lover, Steven also volunteers with the Kingborough Knights cricket club and has been a weekly assistant over the past two cricket seasons.
Steven lives in assisted community care and is an active member at Rowallan Park facility. He contributes to the community in many ways, but takes particular care of the hens and gardens. He is a popular figure in the wider Kingston community, making friends wherever he ventures.
