Staff at Lithgow Aged Care’s two facilities have received a boost with some funds to pay for online training.

Lithgow’s Masonic Hall Pty Ltd on behalf of Lodge Independent Lewis have donated $3000, continuing the strong ties between Lithgow Masons and Lithgow Aged Care.

Lithgow Aged Care CEO Sharon Holt welcomed the donation which will pay for subscription for the e-learning modules.

“This will increase the ability and performance of staff to help residents.”

She said it will allow staff to take up the training in their own time and have some flexibility to it.

“RNs and ENs can also benefit from the e-learning to maintain their registrations,” Ms Holt added.

Neville Kerrison who is the director of the Lithgow’s Masonic Hall board said that the Masons involvement with Lithgow Aged Care goes back 40 years to beginning of the facilities.

He said the donation comes from the proceeds of the Masonic Hall that was sold last year.

Mr Kerrison is also on the board of Lithgow Aged Care.
