Meet the Care with Quality Team

Judi Cohen Managing Director

Judi Cohen - Manging DirectorJudi Cohen is Managing Director of Care With Quality.

Inspired by the needs of her two grandmothers who lived to their late 90s and the experiences gained as an Occupational Therapist, Judi took the opportunity to purchase Care With Quality in 2005.  Judi started her journey towards Care With Quality as far back as her uni student days.  While studying Occupational Therapy, Judi ran an activity group for teenagers with epilepsy, giving them the opportunity to participate in leisure pursuits with other teenagers on the weekends whilst providing respite for their families.

Her OT career led her to work with adolescents becoming adults with cystic fibrosis, cardiac rehabilitation, lifestyle management in residential care, and as senior clinician in Aged Care for Western Health.  When the opportunity to purchase Care With Quality came in 2005, a company with an excellent reputation, providing  the type of care in the community that Judi saw as so valuable, she jumped at the opportunity.  At that stage Judi’s two grandmothers were in their 90s and had been through every kind of care imaginable- so personal experience complimented  Judi’s knowledge and skills as well.

Today Judi is Chairperson of the Peak Body for Aged Care- LASA (Leading Aged Services Australia)’s Community Care Taskforce and represents Victoria on the National Home Care Advisory Group.  Judi attends and presents at conferences and seminars regularly.  Judi is also a 2014 nominee for the Telstra Business Woman’s Awards.

Through all this, Judi has a very hands on approach and is confident to work in all aspects of Care With Quality whenever required. Don’t be surprised if it is Judi who picks up the phone when you call!!

In her leisure time Judi’s passion for family, community and volunteering have led to her active participation in numerous not for profit boards and committees.
