Village Green Autumn 2018

Goodbye summer; hello cooler days, cups of tea and comfy sweaters. Autumn is here, bringing with it the latest edition of the Village Green. This newsletter is packed full of information, as the last few months have been an exciting time for each of Greengate’s Retirement and Aged Care Villages across Sydney and in Brisbane.

St Patrick’s Green in Kogarah, Greengate’s newest village, continues to be abuzz with activity since it opened in December. We saw over 400 people attend our Open Day – it was great to see so much interest and support from our residents and the local community. It was a fantastic day with delicious food, entertainment, and tours of our community areas and display apartments. A special mention to our wonderful residents who helped out on the day: thank you for welcoming our guests into the village and your homes. It was clear to everyone on the day that the strong and supportive community at St Patrick’s Green is the special thing that sets our village apart from the rest.

If the Open Day wasn’t enough for the hardworking village team at St Patrick’s Green, then the opening of our boutique aged care home in February was sure to keep them busy. Already we have welcomed a group of new residents into the Bethany, and we’ve received a lot of good feedback from our residents and their families as they settle into their new home. The Greengate team was very excited about the launch of Synergy House, which you can read more about in the newsletter. 

This quarter, we decided to interview some of the residents at St Luke’s Green, Woolloongabba about village life. It’s been nearly a year since we opened our doors in Woolloongabba, so we were interested to touch base and gain the perspective of those who are now well and truly settled in. Read on for the inside scoop on our Brisbane village, and to get a sense of what life at St Luke’s Green is all about. In this Village Green we also introduce you to some important people who have joined the team at Greengate – you’ll be seeing their faces around our villages, so please give them a big welcome.  

As always, St Brigid’s Green, Maroubra has been a hive of activity. If you’re from the Maroubra area, then you’re probably aware that St Brigid’s Green loves to host exciting events for our residents and guests – in this edition we share with you some of the things our residents have been up to, as well as some of the events we have planned for the upcoming year.

We would love to show you around our care village. We are currently filling our Aged Care Home and still have some Independent Retirement Apartments available, but be quick because they won’t last long. Call us today on 07 3129 9075 or email us at stlukesgreen@greengate.com.au to book a tour of St Luke's Green and to view the display apartments.
