With immense sadness we recently farewelled our dear colleague and close friend, Paul Johnson, following his inspirational battle with illness, but it is with tremendous gratitude and pride we acknowledge his amazing contribution to the BallyCara community, the aged care industry and beyond.

Paul was a leader. Through his actions, his words and his vision. Across the 10+ years he spent at BallyCara Paul was a senior leader in our organization driving BallyCara’s growth and seeing thousands more people impacted by our services. Our mantra is to inspire healthy and happy living, a purpose that Paul was so wonderfully committed to. He had a genuine commitment for us to impact profoundly on people's lives because he believed that people’s lives could be made better irrespective of someone’s age or health status. This commitment led to many significant accomplishments including the positioning of health and wellness as core to all we do, taking BallyCara to new regions and helping us earn a fantastic reputation nationally and indeed internationally.

Through his dedication, creativity and intelligence Paul impacted significantly on his colleagues, the industry that we are a part of but also the wider community and people of all age groups.

BallyCara suited Paul and Paul suited BallyCara. BallyCara is all about people and relationships. That was Paul’s focus too. Giving people time, understanding them and knowing what was important to them. Building relationships.

He had unique capabilities in terms of how he engaged with people and how he could work with people. He could be both practical and aspirational at the same time.

Paul leaves an incredible legacy through his work at BallyCara and elsewhere. Not just for what he did but rather the way he did it. His passion, vision and dedication will continue to be a source of influence for us all. Indeed, we will formally honour his legacy in appropriate ways into the future.

Paul, thank you for your friendship, leadership and inspiration.

Vale Paul Johnson
