Executive promotion for aged care manager
AnglicareSA’s former Head of Residential Aged Care Graydn Spinks has been promoted as the organisation’s new Executive General Manager of Aged Care Services.
Spinks joined AnglicareSA in November last year and has been acting in the executive role since June.
His permanent executive appointment at AnglicareSA comes after Daniel Aitchison vacated the post to take on the role of CEO at Clayton Church Homes – an aged care provider in metropolitan Adelaide and the Hills.
Across a 25-year career, Spinks has held a number of senior positions in Adelaide and Perth, including Director and General Manager roles at Southern Cross Care WA, and executive roles with Baptistcare in SA.
Spinks is also currently serving as a Board Member at Multicultural Aged Care – a government-funded advisory body providing recommendations on culturally appropriate delivery of services.
AnglicareSA CEO Grant Reubenicht, who was also recently made permanent in his executive role, said Spinks’ appointment would help create better outcomes for older clients.
“Graydn is committed, with the rest of the aged care team at AnglicareSA, to enabling older people to derive meaning and purpose from their lives,” Reubenicht said.
“We look forward to Graydn’s leadership and the impact of his passion for creating customer-focused solutions that provide choice and flexibility for older and vulnerable Australians, enabling them to remain connected with and contribute to their community.”
AnglicareSA employs more than 1800 staff alongside 500 volunteers who, according to the organisation, support more than 60,000 South Australians every year.
Alongside aged care, the charity also offers disability accommodation, foster care and mental health support services.
