Meet Virginia Podesta – Our Coffs Harbour Home Manager

Japara is pleased to introduce Virginia Podesta, the Facility Manager of our Coffs Harbour Aged Care Home. Virginia has a wealth of experience, having worked at our Coffs Harbour home as since before Japara acquired this address in 2015.

The third eldest of nine children, caring for others has always been important to Virginia, so the role she is in is simply an extension of this. Virginia believes the best thing about the home is that it is a “community within a community, filled with individuals sharing and caring”. This is a theme that resonates with Virginia, who says her main driving passion is for “sharing the life stories of a significant generation of individuals, those who defined who we are today as a nation.” With the community feel of Coffs Harbour, Virginia and her team of dedicated aged care staff are committed to making every resident feel at home.

Outside of work, Virginia enjoys exploring the country in her caravan with her husband, and listening to music, old and new, from The Carpenters to Adele. Eventually, Virginia would like to have a holiday travelling around the United Kingdom.

 To contact Virginia and the team at Japara Coffs Harbour Aged Care Home, send us an email to enquiries@japara.com.au or give us a call on (02) 6652 1494.
