After thirty-five years working at St Anne’s Nursing Home, Julie Baldwin had worked her last day and is now retired. 

Julie first began work at St Anne’s Nursing home in 1984 as a registered nurse, “I remember when the Sisters of Compassion handed the nursing home over to Southern Cross Care ... it was a small 52 bed facility,” she said. 

In 1997, Julie was promoted to a management role and since then has been in either a director or managers position.

She was the Director of Nursing at the nursing home up until her final day and was the manager of the new St Anne’s facility since it opened 12 years ago. 

Julie said she has thoroughly enjoyed her time at St Anne’s.

“I’ve seen lots of changes in aged care, Southern Cross Care is a great place to work ... I couldn’t of asked for more.”  

Julie thanked the board of Southern Cross Care “for all the wonderful opportunities to pursue my career.”

She also extended a thank you to the board and staff for all the beautiful farewell gifts she received.

“I will miss all the friendships and friendly staff and residents.”

Although Julie is now retired, she won’t be slowing down much.

“I’ve still got lots of interests and am still a business partner at Baldwin Automotive with my husband,” she said.

“I have lots of grandchildren to care for and I plan to do a lot of travelling overseas and throughout Australia.”

The first trip being to Canada and Alaska as her retirement present. 

The board and management wish Julie all the best after a wonderful career at St Anne’s Nursing Home.
