Our CEO Ashley Clarence also introduced the plan across our social media networks, including Facebook, so pop over and take a look and if you haven't already then like our page while you are there.
A few highlights that Ashley mentions in his video are "The main theme of our plan is to maximise the benefits in our community. Not just limited to home care services, but what is the most good we can do."
"We are not about making profits for no reason, every extra dollar we make will be spent improving the lives of country people, by addressing community challenges in the country."
We are really excited about the future and direction of Country Home Services and we thank you all for your support.
On the weekend Country Home Services attended the Tanunda Show for the first time, and despite the overcast weather and a bit of rain, it was a lovely day that gave us a chance to connect with our local community. In the photo to our left you can see two of our hardest workers on the day - Ashley our CEO and Leith, one of our board members and no stranger to country shows. Leith has been showing his pigeons at shows for most of his life and has been judging at country shows for just as long, so he was very much at home for the day and was a wonderful advocate for us in explaining to people how we can help them with our services.
There were plenty of postive connections made on the day and even Ashley got into the show spirit and entered into the egg competition and even took out 2nd place. We love getting out and about and meeting you all so in the future we will be looking for more ways to connect with our country communities so watch this space.....
Last week our CEO Ashley Clarence was out and about again but this time he was helping our contractor Amanda clean a couple of our client's homes. The day went very well and as each of our clients receive services that are tailored to their needs, this visit gave Ashley another introduction into what kind or services our organisations provides.
In chatting to one of our clients that met Ashley that day, Patricia (shown in the photo on the left,) she commented that "everything went well and Ashley is a good cleaner." "I tell everyone about Country Home Services as I am very happy with the services I receive." "Country Home Services gives an A1 service and is very reliable."
Amanda, who was showing Ashley the ropes was very happy stating that "Ashley can come work with me anytime."
Below are a few more photos of Ashley in action during his visit to various client's homes last week.
