Effective Corporate Governance is a feature of Dougherty’s management. Dougherty has a committed Board of Directors comprising members from Willoughby City Council, and Housing NSW.
The Board meets each month and reviews both the day-to-day operational management and the strategic direction and issues of Dougherty. Overall day-to-day management is vested in the General Manager of the facility.
At Dougherty we encourage our residents, families and friends to provide as much feedback as possible in order to make positive changes.
Self Care Committee
Dougherty has a Self Care Committee comprising interested and committed residents from the resident funded section of self care residents.
The Committee meets monthly and these meetings are attended by the General Manager, who keeps the Committee up-to-date with issues at Dougherty.
Any items of concern to the Committee are also raised with the General Manager, so there is a mutual cross flow of information between management and the self care residents.
Residential Care Residents Meetings
Residential Care Residents’ Meetings are held monthly. Here you and your fellow residents can have your say on various aspects of the management of the residential care – things such as food, cleaning, maintenance, care services and recreation activities etc.
