IRT General Member profile
Dr Frank Pitt
Retired school principal Dr Frank Pitt became an IRT General Member in 2019 and encourages others to join too.
“IRT is a really great organisation to be involved with,” he says. “It presents an opportunity to support people in aged care. I get more out of it than what I put in.”
Before becoming a General Member, Frank says he had limited knowledge of aged care and retirement living. “But I had heard a lot about IRT and people speak glowingly of it. A few friends have moved into IRT’s retirement villages and they talk about the sense of community and security which IRT provides.”
Frank says he was delighted with the opportunity to become a General Member and has now developed an understanding of the challenges faced by the aged care sector. He also enjoys connecting with other General Members, contributing to the organisation and learning more about IRT and aged care.
“My wife and I attended an IRT event when I first joined and we had the opportunity to meet some of the older General Members and their relatives. IRT builds a great sense of community.”
