    ED's Letter

    Here I am, at my fourth New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA) conference gala dinner. I’m positively a veteran. That’s not an award I’m holding, but a table centrepiece emblazoned with the words ‘Achieving excellence is a team game’ – a nod to this year’s dinner’s theme. As usual, people had made a real effort with their themed costumes. Sporting and super heroes, the royal family, all four ninja turtles, and even the cast of MASH were there.
