"We contracted James Saunders of Pride Living to undertake a staffing review of our facilities and we were extremely pleased with the outcomes he was able to achieve.

James’ review not only resulted in better care process for our residents but also in significant increases to our revenues. We are more than happy to recommend him to undertake this task for any organisation looking at optimising their staff ratios and mix. His extensive industry knowledge and experience was clear in the results he achieved for our organisation."

Damien Pembroke

How was it to work with Pride Living?
James was very aware of our workloads and made the process of conducting the roster reviews across each of our homes as painless as possible. James worked with both facility staff and the head office team to develop recommendations that were consistent with our organisation’s mission and that were quite achievable.
What surprised you the most or made you the happiest about engaging with Pride Living?
We found the reports easy to read with practicable solutions to address our workforce issues.
What made you choose our services over any other advisory firm?
We have worked with Pride on other projects and have found them to be very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
What practical solutions and success did our services bring to your business?
As a result of the roster reviews, we now have a good platform on which to build our workforce. We have increased our ACFI to reflect our staffing needs and have reduced our staffing costs.

"Pride Living supported the Board and CEO of Autumn Lodge to execute its decision to pursue a merger. Pride did this in a manner that was very sensitive to the over 100 years of service to the Armidale community that Autumn Lodge had delivered. At the same time, it was pragmatic in the process of refining the list of potential merger partners through a robust selection process that resulted in a clear and unanimous decision to choose Uniting to continue the service and operations to the New England community.

I recommend any providers considering a merger or acquisition talk with Bruce and the team at Pride Living"

Brendan Moore
Interim Chief Executive Officer

"Having completed three different forms of acquisition in the last 9 months, working with Pride on the Autumn Lodge merger was truly beneficial. Highly legalised approaches tend to result in high transaction costs. Approaches with low external intervention, where just the two parties are interacting, create challenges in ensuring the flow of documentation is consistent and momentum is maintained.

A commercially realistic arbiter like Pride Living keeps both sides focussed and accountable. Pride’s approach supported both parties particularly when the required or expected data wasn’t readily available. Pride’s pragmatic persistence to resolve these challenges enabled us to complete the transaction on time and on budget. I would thoroughly recommend the team at Pride Living to organisations who are considering a merger."

Denis Tamplin
Head, Finance Strategy

"From the initial contact with Pride, I have found their willingness to help and their promptness in responding to requests excellent.

The Aged Care Industry is a complex business and change is constant. Relying on industry experts like Pride Living to assist with keeping us up to date has been essential for our business. It allows us to spend more time on the care for our residents, making their lives more fulfilling. Their industry knowledge is on point and their friendly engaging staff makes doing business with Pride Living easy.

As small rural town provider of Aged Care Services, it’s not always possible to have staff fully equipped with the skills and knowledge that large multi facility providers have access to. Engaging Pride Living has been very beneficial to our business and to improve the services we provide. The financial acumen and knowledge of industry particularly performance benchmarks has helped us, as a not for profit, make informed decisions on the services we provide which in turn benefits our community."

David Neeves
General Manager

"Bruce Bailey is an entrepreneurial strategist with a firm understanding of the aged care industry and principals of good corporate governance. He has provided consultancies to Chaffey Aged Care over a number of years and is always informed and engaging.

Bruce has assisted Chaffey Aged Care to develop a contemporary strategic plan which will assist our organisation to navigate a path to success in a complex industry and challenging economic climate.

I have no hesitation in recommending Bruce and the team at Pride Living as they have assisted our board and executive team to formulate tailored solutions to our strategic objectives."

"Dear Bruce

I wish to thank you and the team at Pride Living for helping Kalyna Care work its way through our Covid-induced crisis. This is the most challenging situation we have ever faced, and failure would have seen us lose our independence.

This was a very stressful time for the Board and we valued your honest and realistic advice.

Your knowledge, expertise and relationships proved successful in the provision of grants and additional debt funding that was necessary for our survival. Pride Living did a fantastic job in its guidance and representation of Kalyna Care to government channels and our private financiers.

In your communications with the Board and our management team you addressed our concerns and gave us confidence we were on a pathway to resolving our immediate challenges. We are now on the road to ensuring the long-term sustainability of Kalyna Care."

"In August 2021, Orana Gardens Ltd was the subject of an unannounced site audit. This audit was due, however for Orana Gardens, it wasn’t the best timing...The audit outcome was a Non Compliance Notice due to the Not Mets in all 8 standards with a Notice to Comply. The RAC went through a massive reset, utilising the available Business Advisory Services Grant with PwC. From this, an action plan was developed and this is when we reached out to Pride Living, as we had worked successfully with them in the past. The team at Pride Living assisted our BIF(2) Grant application and we were successful in obtaining the much required funds to improve the priorities that were identified in the PwC review.

Over the past 5 months, we have worked closely with the team at Pride Living, [their] communication process, transparency and timeliness of support [had] set us up for our recent success. An unannounced site audit found that we were fully compliant 42 of 42 [quality standards]! This turnaround is due to the hard work of our team and the exceptional support provided by Pride Living."

Clint Grose
Chief Executive Officer

For any Aged Care provider looking for assistance, support or external consultants, I can only recommend that you contact Pride Living."

Compliance Remediation

"Katrina was appointed as the Clinical Adviser to Kirkbrae as the full impact of the COVID19 outbreak took hold at the facility. She seamlessly navigated the environment of an organisation operating in crisis mode. Katrina’s immediate and sustained focus was on the care of the residents. This guided her approach to working through the many complexities that the organisation faced. Her collaborative approach ensured the diverse team, often with differing views, worked together to effectively restore the facility to a sense of normality. Katrina managed the requirement to remain objective and independent with great skill. Her experience and expertise assisted by the broader team at Pride Living meant the advice we received was wise and timely which allowed us to make decisions with confidence. I would recommend Pride Living and Katrina to any organisation that finds itself in a compromised compliance situation"

JC is very personable and professional and this shone through when he facilitated the meetings we held with residents and their families. He quickly put people at ease, was able to respond to difficult questions in a calm and considered way and kept the meeting on track. JC met with us to plan the process and valued added through his deep knowledge of this very contentious area.
