The fund was established to support a dedicated research person to assist in a major review of the work done to date by Dr Wood in burns treatment.

Silver Chain expands

AT-HOME nursing care provider Silver Chain wants to play a bigger role in the retirement development market to meet demand for independent living units.

Silver Chain general manager finance Michael Bowd said the group was interested in expanding the range of services it offered to the community.

“It’s a natural addition to our core services,” he said.

“Strategically what we want to do is fill out the range of services we offer. We currently offer community care, high care, low care and we’d like to round that out by providing independent living options.

“We’re getting more and more interest from clients who have expressed an interest in independent living.”

Silver Chain is currently seeking partnerships with the not for profit sector and Government to help push forward its expansion plans.

“Silver Chain’s business was traditionally aligned with providing services to people in need,” Mr Bowd said.

“The sort of partners we’re looking for include businesses with particular experience such as in the development industry. We’re not finding it difficult, it’s a very active market sector. A lot of developers are looking for innovative and new ideas and we’re part of that future.”

ABC makes gains

THE seventh radio ratings of the year reveals a very little movement between the stations with the biggest swing belonging to ABC 720, which managed to wrestle an additional 1.5 per cent.

The bombings in Bali probably played a role in the ABC’s result however competing talk radio station 6PR didn’t record any increase in listeners in the morning session. There have been some big shifts in the 10-17 age group with mix 94.5 adding 3.3 per cent to its market share. Most of this gain seems to have come at the expense of 96FM, which has lost 3.5 per cent in the youngest demographic. In other big gains 6PR picked up 3 per cent in the 55+ age group and 96FM added 3.1 per cent in its 25-39 age group.
