Welcome to 2022. I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. 2021 was a year filled with many achievements for Corumbene. We were thrilled that in December we were able to officially open ‘The Village’ and hand over the last set of keys before Christmas.

The COVID-19 virus will continue to be a risk to all Tasmanians and we encourage you to be vaccinated and have your booster shots as soon as you are eligible. This is the best way to protect yourself and loved ones. Public health advice keeps changing and we will keep you all informed as new information or instructions are received. Please visit our Facebook page for regular updates.

The New Year brings some exciting changes and projects to the Corumbene Community. The Executive Team has some new faces and some familiar ones too. As part of Corumbene’s restructure, I would like to introduce our new Executive Team:

  • Director of Care – Wendy Tempest
  • Director of Community Services – Diana Purcell
  • Chief Operations Officer – Julie Purves
  • Director of Business Excellence – Tassie Strafkos
  • Business Development Advisor – Finance – Peter Woodhouse

I am sure you will welcome our Executive Team as we move into the new and exciting future we have together. We have embarked on our ambitious vision of the ‘Health Hub on The Avenue’ project with works commencing in early 2022. We will keep everyone informed of the project and milestones. The local community will be pleased to see the Derwent and Esperance buildings transformed to add much needed services to the area.

Day Respite services will soon be expanded to include our new home at Glen Grey House and we look forward to holding an official opening. I am excited to see what we will achieve in 2022. Let the year bring happiness, good health and wellbeing and let’s keep looking out for each other.

Kind regards,
Alison Standen
Chief Executive Officer
