Kelvin Neave

Skye Harvey Unsung Heroes – Individual


Dougherty Apartments

Kelvin has in excess of 30 years involvement in Healthcare, with half of that in the Aged Care & Retirement Living sectors at Management levels. He flies under the radar, willing to do what it takes to get the job done, supporting staff, residents and relatives day to day. He takes everyone on a positive journey to success with ease and his natural leader style abilities. I personally have worked with Kelvin for 3 years now across two sites, following him to Dougherty Apartments. During the time I’ve known Kelvin, he has mentored and supported not only me but everyone in our Leadership team, allowing us to flourish and instil in our staff the encouragement and support to provide exceptional care to our residents and to empower us, in all that we do.
He is so respected by his current team and also by his previous team / staff who still contact him! This also includes prior Board members and Residents Relatives! They miss him.
Residents always speak well of Kelvin here at Dougherty Apartments as he is respectful and compassionate. My office is right near the lift and on numerous occasions I’ve heard the residents or relatives say “that’s where Kelvin sits over there, he’s great, we’re so happy he’s here.” He takes time out from his busy schedule to ask how they are and to acknowledge all residents across the diverse cultural mix that we have.
