The executive director for Age Concern Bermuda is to retire after 22 years of “dedicated service“.

Claudette Fleming will retire a the end of September but will continue to work with the organisation in a mentoring capacity.

Linda Smith, Age Concern’s chairwoman, said: “Over her 22 years of service, Dr Fleming has taken Age Concern from a small charity to a significant contributor within the charitable sector in Bermuda, serving the needs of older adults of our community.

“The charity was registered as a voluntary society in 1978. In 1998, it was incorporated as a Bermuda registered company, and opened its first office in the year 2000 with Claudette Fleming as its first employee.

“Today, the organisation is over 5,000 members strong, is Bermuda National Standards Committee certified and holds an affiliation with the American College of Healthcare Administrators.

“Age Concern provides a range of human services such as information, advice, and financial hardship support, reaching over 3,000 older adults on an annual basis.

“In recent times the organisation has been heavily focused on supporting the needs of seniors as they navigate the challenges of living in Bermuda during Covid times.

“Through Dr Fleming's steadfast commitment and leadership, the organisation is well placed to continue to serve the needs of the community in Bermuda.”

Dr Fleming will provide assistance and expertise to the board and management team as the organisation develops a three-year strategic plan.

The board will soon begin the process of selecting a permanent successor and is inviting candidates to apply for the role.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in finance and business management as well as fund development skills. Initial expressions of interest can be sent to ageconcernbermuda@gmail.com

Ms Smith added: “We take this opportunity to thank Claudette for her unwavering commitment, service and positive contribution to Bermuda.

“We are excited for her and our organisation, as we explore the emerging opportunities that are developing in this new chapter of Age Concern's history."
