With the imminent retirement of long-serving Living Choice Alloura Waters manager, Garry Spencer, a new manager, Dale Eastwood, has been appointed at the village to ensure a smooth transition.

Dale, who has been in the retirement and aged care industry for many years, said he considered himself fortunate to have been given the opportunity to join an organisation with such a wonderful reputation.

Dale has been involved in the retirement industry since June 2013, having been Operations Manager for three Independent Living villages and two Residential Aged Care Facilities for the Adventist group in Greater Sydney.

“I have a real passion to support senior residents and this position offers new and exciting challenges for me, all of which I am looking forward to. I can already see this is a fine group of people I will be working with. I am enthusiastic about joining the team and look forward to meeting everyone in person.”

Dale and his wife of 30 years have two sons aged 19 and 22 who are both studying at Avondale College in the Hunter Region. They reside locally on the Central Coast.

Dale has already commenced on a part-time basis two days a week and will be full-time from 18th September, two weeks prior to Garry Spencer’s retirement.
