Greengate Villages are proud to announce we are in full compliance with the Retirement Living Code of Conduct which came into effect on 1 January 2020. The Code is the combined initiative of two peak industry bodies who represent retirement living operators across Australia: the Retirement Living Council (part of the Property Council of Australia) and Leading Age Services Australia (LASA).
Most of our readers will know Paul, our Head Chef at St Luke’s Green and National Food services Manager for Greengate, but did you know that Paul does a lot of charity work in Mongolia? He has recently returned from his tenth trip to Mongolia where he volunteers at an orphanage, Lotus Children’s Centre, teaching young people how to cook.
A lot of people ask us, what is a Home Care Package and how do I get one? So we thought we’d break it down for our readers who want to stay in their home but are in need of a little extra assistance. Some examples of care you may be eligible to receive at home include: domestic assistance, meal preparation, personal care, transport, laundry, shopping, home maintenance or nursing assistance.
On Saturday, St Luke’s Green celebrated its second anniversary with a concert in St Luke’s church, followed by bubbly and birthday cake in our beautiful community areas. When you look at the tight-knit community who call St Luke’s Green home, it’s hard to believe that our little village has only been open for two years. The strong friendships and community spirit that we witnessed on Saturday, prove why the village is firmly established as the most popular place for seniors in Woolloongabba.
The housing market can be a tough place, but there are a few things you can do which will help your house to stand out from the rest and attract the right buyer. First and foremost, ensure your house is clean and free of clutter. If you have a lot of stuff that you’re unwilling to part with, consider putting some of it in storage while selling your house. This will free up space and make your house feels more open.
Now that 2019 is well and truly underway, we have started planning our upcoming events at St Luke’s Green, Woolloongabba. All of us here in Brisbane are looking forward to another vibrant and fulfilling year in our little village in a big city.
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.
