We are experienced professionals in the areas of social work, nursing, physiotherapy, and the public service. Two of our committee members, Carmel Hurst and Beris Campbell, have been awarded honours in recognition of their groundbreaking work in establishing Homeshare programs in Australia.
At 2015’s AGM a couple of significant changes occurred. Our founding President and Chair Shirley Anderson retired and former Vice President Annette Madden stepped into Shirley’s shoes which are big ones to fill. Lyn Grocke was appointed as the new Vice President. Founding committee member, and much valued member of the Homeshare team that established the first Melbourne program, Joan Crawford, retired and has been awarded life membership of HANZA in recognition of her outstanding contribution. A new face has joined the committee – Tony Cavedon. Tony established the Homeshare program at lifeAssist over the past few years and he brings much-valued current program experience to the committee.
