Tony Whitton – Banksia Villages

Skye Harvey Unsung Heroes – Individual

Organisation:

Banksia Village

When we talk about Aged Care we often focus on the care and clinical roles. Just as important are support roles such as Tony Whitton, Maintenance Officer at Banksia Lodge who provides wonderful help to the staff and residents with a can-do attitude and high-quality maintenance and repair skills. Tony is a consistently high-performing team member whose strong work ethic endears him to the whole team. Tony undertakes a variety of duties including maintenance, repairs and scheduled tasks.
Tony has recently undertaken training as the Banksia Lodge Chief Fire Warden. This role will add work to his already heavy workload, but he has accepted the challenge with a smile. An oft-heard phrase from residents and staff is “It’s ok, Tony can fix it.” He even participates in our Dress up days.
