ComLink Begins Regional Road Shows

ComLink has hit the road! Yesterday ComLink began its series of road shows across Queensland, launching its first event in Caloundra, on the Sunshine Coast.

Accommodated by the Caloundra Uniting Church, ComLink’s informational event hosted over 100 Coast seniors, their partners and friends.

The day was about meeting as many of our clients in person as we could to talk about the wide range of services available at ComLink that they might not have known about.

‘We never want a client to miss out on a vital service simply because they were not aware that it is available to them. ComLink wants everybody to get as much out of our service as they can!’

Up for discussion was Transport, Domestic Assistance and Home Care Packages, as well as new financial services.

‘It’s important to always be out in the community telling people what we do. The age care space can be confusing, so it is vital that we are always communicating everything that we are able to provide to our clients’, CEO Feda Adra said.

‘We never want a client to miss out on a vital service simply because they were not aware that it is available to them. ComLink wants everybody to get as much out of our service as they can!’.

The roadshow was the first of two events to be held on the Sunshine Coast, with the remaining event taking place later in the year, incorporating the Maroochydore to Noosa areas.

ComLink will be running events in all the regions we service, so be sure to watch out for us across Queensland!

Need any more reason to join us next time? Well how about this… There’s SHOWBAGS! You can finally have your very own ComLink officially branded coffee mug. Wowsers!

Encouraging Innovation with ‘Intrapreneurship’

ComLink is growing quickly at a time of disruption across the entire economy, and innovation is important so that we can (a) deliver our services as efficiently and effectively as possible, and (b) stay ahead of the pack, justifiably claiming we’re ‘Leading the Care Revolution’. We have creative, talented and motivated people in our paid and volunteer workforce, and some of them will be attracted to the idea of adding a new strand to what they do: intrapreneurship! What’s an ‘intrapreneur’? A person working like an entrepreneur, but within the boundaries of an established company – “Dreamers who do. Those who take hands-on responsibility for creating innovation of any kind, within a business.” ComLink Intrapreneurs work, individually or in small […]

Meeting on Common Ground

Loneliness is a feeling that arises in response to a lack of emotional connection with others and can often occur as a result of social isolation. For many elders, loneliness and social isolation is a common challenge that accompanies aging. Interestingly, but sadly, there is a trend for older people to present to hospital emergency departments, not necessarily due to medical problems but instead for social interaction, or because they are simply not coping. In a study by the Australian Government, it was found that people classified as ‘lonely’ are 60% more likely to access emergency services than those considered ‘non-lonely’ and are twice as likely to enter residential aged care facilities. ComLink is proud to have launched Meeting on Common Ground, a program that aims to […]
