CEO Mike Rungie of ACH Group Talks About Improving the Lives of the Elderly in an Interview With Business Review Australia

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - In an interview with Business Review Australia, CEO Mike Rungie of ACH Group talks about improving the lives of the elderly.

"What older people consistently tell us is that they would like their lives to continue to be as it has in the past and continue to live well," CEO Mike Rungie says in the article. "They want us to provide services in a way that enables that, so we have a constant focus on good lives in everything we do. We train our staff, we have an expectation that if they use our services they'll continue to live well, and we consistently talk to older people about what would make a difference so that they are able to live better, rather than what services they need."

Customer focus and respect is achieved through training all of the staff to have a high regard for older people, treat them well and to maintain meaningful relationships with them.
