One Month In: Village Life at St Patrick's Green

It’s been a month since we opened our doors to St Patrick’s Green, Kogarah and the time has just flown by. Our first retirement living residents are already settled into the Village and are enjoying all of the free time that Village life affords. The Greengate team have loved watching our residents get to know each other better over morning tea in the café each day, and have had to exercise a lot of self-restraint by not eating all of the delicious cakes our Head Chef, Nelson has been preparing. Judith, our very first resident to move in, summed it up simply and perfectly: “St Patrick’s Green is a beautiful place.”

Moving into the Future

St Brigid’s Green, Maroubra is excited to be the first Aged Care Home in Australia to be trialing the new app Care Konnect.

Retirement Living with a View

You’re sitting on the balcony of your brand new apartment. The sun is rising over the water and the Sydney skyline to your north is silhouetted against the pink sky. You feel the cool sea breeze and you take a moment to appreciate where you are. The view to Botany Bay is beautiful at this time of morning, and from where you’re sitting you can take it all in. You head inside and down the lift to join your friends in the café for a coffee – who knew Retirement Living could be so easy?
