This week, the members of our Golden Age Club, visited the Mount Flora Regional Museum in Watermans Bay. The group enjoyed the scenic surroundings and the museum’s displays while listened to an informative talk about the region’s history. 😇 Did you know that During WWII the museum’s lookout was an observation post? These days, visitors can walk up the stairs and see the most beautiful panoramic views of the City’s northern beaches. The lookout features a stunning mural by Anne-Maree Pelusey, highlighting the contrast between the land and the sea.🌄😍
This week the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety explored issues in aged care for special needs groups and investigated why providers don’t have to prove they can provide specialised care to special needs groups. At the moment, in the back end of My Aged Care, providers are able to tick boxes saying they can provide care to certain groups, like LGBTI groups or culturally diverse groups.

This week is an opportunity for all of us to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution of Australia’s 2.7 Million unpaid carers make to our nation.
Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities as well as our national economy. Should all carers decide to stop performing their caring role, it would cost the country $60.3 billion per year to replace those supports – that’s over $1 billion per week.
National Carers Week 2019 will be celebrated throughout Australia from 13 – 19 October.
Take a couple of minutes to tell us #why you care about unpaid carers and help build a carer-friendly Australia!
The groups of our Golden Aged Club went to visit Araluen Botanic Park in Roleystone and they absolutely loved it! 🌷🌷🌷🌷
Did you know how that the history of Araluen begins with Australian Business man and politician of the Young Australia League. J.J."Boss" Simons, establishing a holiday camp for this youth organisation in 1929?
He brought 59 Hectares of a valley for his camp Creeks run through the valley creating a cool moist climate, making it an ideal site for a garden. Simons called his valley Araluen, an Aboriginal word meaning “singing waters,” “running waters” or “place of lilies.”
