2023 - a year of change for Boandik

2023 will represent a year of significant change for Boandik given the continued roll out of the Commonwealth Government's Aged Care Reforms, with the Board pleased to announce that Glenn Rappensberg will return as the organisation's Chief Executive Officer from Monday 30 January. Boandik President, Vicki Quinn acknowledged the efforts of outgoing CEO Declan Moore whose tenure concluded on Wednesday 25 January, "with the Board wishing him all the best in his future endeavours", Ms Quinn said.

Mr Rappensberg most recently was Boandik's Interim CEO from May to September 2022 following the resignation of long-standing CEO Gillian McGinty, and successfully steered the organisation through a four (4) month Sanction period following a review by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission in the beginning of 2022.

Ms Quinn says, "that she and the Board are delighted that Mr Rappensberg is able to return to Mount Gambier whilst Boandik continues its journey of self-evaluation post last year's Sanction period to ensure that the care and safety of residents and clients remains at the highest possible standard."

With the ongoing roll-out of the Commonwealth Government's Aged Care Reforms, Glenn's qualifications, experience and expertise will assist the Board in their strategic leadership of the necessary operational outcomes required of the eight (8) Aged Care Standards. A key responsibility for the Boandik CEO moving forward will be to work with the Board to evaluate the effect of the Reforms on the organisation's human, material and financial resources to ensure the current high standard of care and support afforded to residents and service recipients, can be maintained in the most cost-effective manner, whether that be as a single entity or in partnership with another entity.

The organisation will shortly commence a comprehensive change management project in order to embrace the Aged Care Reforms positively and work with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission; it's residents and staff; and the South East Community, to maintain and enhance its status as a much respected and loved provider of services to older Australians and people living with a disability across our beautiful region.
