Jubilee Community Care Inc is governed by the Jubilee Community Care Inc Board. The Board is elected each year by the members at the Annual General Meeting.
Committee members are volunteers who bring a wealth of experience, skills and passion to their roles on the committee.
The Board operates under a charter which sets out the purpose, roles and responsibilities, delegations, culture, membership, meeting procedures, professional development and evaluation of the Jubilee Community Care Inc Board.
Dr Judy Salecich ~ President
I joined the Management Committee of Jubilee Community Care in November 2007 and held the position of President from September 2008 to July 2021. In November 2022, I was re-elected President of what is now known as the Jubilee Community Care Inc Board. Thus, I bring to the role 13+ years of experience in Board leadership, familiarity with the aged care industry and dedication to the vision, mission and values of Jubilee Community Care.
My interest in aged care began when my mother, 87, came to live with me and my husband. She lived with us for eight years and, for the last 4½ years of her life, I was her full-time carer. This experience gave me understanding and awareness of the issues facing older folk who live at home or with their family, and their carer(s), and a genuine concern and empathy for older folk and carers in our community.
My professional experience includes various roles and positions in the Queensland Public Service: high school teacher, TAFE teacher, coordinator of a Dispute Resolution Centre, senior investigator (professional conduct), project manager (strategic planning, business planning, corporate governance). In addition, I am a writer (I have my own website) and researcher (I have completed a number of significant research projects).
Today, I use my professional and personal knowledge, skills and experience in a voluntary capacity in leadership roles in my church and the community.
Sue Paulsen ~ Vice President
This is my second tenure on the Jubilee Board after first being a longtime member of Jubilee’s management committee until October, 2019. I first joined the management committee and rejoined what is now the Board because I believe in using my skills and resources to enrich the community where I live. I’ve enjoyed interactions with older people from my childhood – family members, visitors and neighbours. The mission of Jubilee Community Care to support older people to remain living independently in their own homes resonates with the vision I have for my later years. I thoroughly enjoy my involvement with the amazing Jubilee Community Care community and believe that it adds a rich dimension to my life.
Professionally I trained as a Secondary School teacher majoring in Business subjects. Over three decades I loved working in Government, Catholic and Independent education sectors. I have also been involved in arious residential community welfare programs (mainly with marginalised young people), both in Australia and overseas.
Peter Hunt-Sharp ~ Treasurer
Christopher Cox – Secretary
I have worked for 38 years in the insurance industry in underwriting, sales, portfolio management as well as people management roles.
My key focus during the past 20 years has been managing several insurance portfolios while delivering on customer needs, ensuring adherence to all governance and compliance requirements including effective incident management and delivering financial results.
With my experience I bring to the Jubilee Board a customer/client obsession where the client comes first; people management insights to help create a stable and supportive staffing environment; advice on risk and compliance; and the ability to develop and deliver short and long-term strategic outcomes, focused on the organisation’s purpose. Leadership and strong decision-making skills are also my forte.
Dr Sue Colen – Member
As a doctor I was in General Practice in the Toowong/Auchenflower area for more than 20 years. I was often looking for services that were flexible, professional, caring and reliable for my patients and Jubilee Community Care became the service provider of choice for my patients. During that time I was invited to serve on the then management committee of Jubilee as an ordinary member and I filled this role for nine years. My involvement with my patients in General Practice meant I was very aware of the needs of this group, and that was beneficial to Jubilee. In November 2022, I was re-elected to the now Board of Jubilee and hope to be able to bring my clinical and personal experience to this role.
Currently I work for an organisation that provides community palliative care support to patients with life-limiting conditions.
During 2021/22 I had a need to find services for a family member and experienced the complexity of the community aged care system. Jubilee were able to assist me, this time at a different level.
