Business as usual at Carramar
CARRAMAR staff and residents can expect business as usual following a change of management early next year, according to a Churches of Christ Care spokesman.
The spokesman said the non-profit organisation, which has a division in Warwick, hoped to maintain current services.
"Carramar services are operating well and provide quality care for residents in a financially viable manner," he said.
"As such, the management transition is aimed at ensuring these standards and this service is maintained through a smooth transition for residents and staff.
"Churches of Christ Care will look to provide any additional capability and/or systems that can further enhance the service."
Southern Downs councillor and former Carramar board member Denise Ingram said the church group already had a presence in Stanthorpe.
"Council has handed over home maintenance to the Churches of Christ Care," Cr Ingram said.
"They're already in our community.
"I believe their ethos is to be part of the community and to carry out care for those who are no longer able to care for themselves."
Churches of Christ Care currently operates 27 residential aged care services across Queensland.
The organisation will manage Stanthorpe's Carramar facilities following a settlement in February.
