Greengate is delighted to announce the appointment of Ralph Warburton as our new CEO. With over 12 years’ experience supporting the transformation of aged care, Ralph is passionate about improving the quality and supply of care communities for Australian seniors. This makes Ralph the perfect fit for Greengate and our continued growth after launching two new villages, St Patrick’s Green in Kogarah and St Luke’s Green in Woolloongabba, last year.
At St Luke’s Green, every day is a delight thanks in great part to our resident culinary wizard, Chef Paul.
Chef Paul is always whipping up treats for the residents like friands and biscuits for morning tea right through to a weekly dinner.
He's also a dab hand with the barbecue tongs and we would love you to join us for some gourmet grilling on our village green.
It's a great opportunity to check out our 'little village in a big city', have a look at the new apartments on offer and meet some of the residents and staff.
We love the life here and think you will too.
There will be no hard-sell or pressure and it won't cost you a sausage.
We sat down with Daz Smith, Director of Dementia Excellence here at Greengate, to talk about his care approach for our residents living with Dementia. Daz has been with Greengate since December 2017, and in that time we have embraced a variety of changes to our care model and the way we train our village care teams. Here is what Daz had to say:
St Luke’s Green, Greengate’s first Brisbane Village, has won the prestigious nettletontribe Award for Design Excellence at the Property Council of Australia’s National Retirement Living Awards 2017, in recognition of its incorporation of innovation around a historic church.
Meet Paul, our Head Chef at St Luke’s Green, Woolloongabba. Paul is a valuable part of Greengate’s Brisbane team, and not just because he cooks some of the best cakes and meals we have ever tasted. He has recently returned from his eighth trip to Mongolia where he volunteers at an orphanage, teaching young people how to cook.
St Luke’s Green, Woolloongabba, home to Brisbane’s most vibrant seniors community, was officially opened and blessed on Sunday the 10th of September 2017. It was a beautiful morning and the sun was shining as residents of the Retirement Village and Aged Care Home, and members of the local community met on the Village Green for a day of celebration.
