2019 LASA Excellence in Age Services Awards Finalists

Individual Award Finalist

Khoryom ‘Tut’ Nyuon is a personal carer at Fronditha Care’s 60 bed residential care facility in Templestowe. He has devoted his life to helping others after fleeing the horrors of war in his native South Sudan.

Despite what he experienced, Tut never let it deter him from giving back wherever he went.

His caring nature and desire to help the disadvantaged led to a career as a personal carer of elderly Greek Australians.

He became known for his calming personality and deep attention to the care of the frail residents.

He learned conversational Greek to help him communicate better with the elderly and to ensure that they were understood and their needs were met. His exemplary approach has been an example his fellow carers follow.

Tut was a state finalist for the LASA Excellence in Aged Care Awards 2019, and also received the Outstanding Contribution Award at the 2018 Fronditha Care Staff Awards. His nomination was also special as it was submitted from the family members of the elderly residents he cares for.

Tut leads by example and through his care for the elderly has broken down many entrenched prejudices in the community towards South Sudanese refugees.
