President's message

In what can only be described as an extraordinary year that has included drought, bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic, I would most sincerely like to thank all of our employees, colleagues and volunteers for their continued hard work and commitment over the last year. It has not always been easy and we owe our success to you all. It is your passion, agility and professionalism that drives our organisation forward and ensures that LiveBetter continues to deliver quality services and support programs across regional Australia.

there's no place like (the right) home

After suffering a debilitating injury, Bev Warne became a paraplegic at the age of 52 and found herself living in an aged care home… A place she didn’t fit into on so many levels.


Along with the complete loss of her independence, the adequate care needed for Bev’s injuries was not given due to the different staff-to-aged care resident ratio, resulting in her remaining in bed for long periods of time, missed meals and experiencing significant pain.
