Know someone who needs aged care services?

Do you know a family member or friend who is seeking assistance with housework, personal care, transport, gardening, dementia care or wants to know more about residential aged care?

To share word of our services Jubilee will host a free information session about accessing Government-subsidised aged care services.

The forums will be held:
• December 14 at Sherwood Football Club, 41 Chelmer Street East, Chelmer, at 10.30am;
• January 18 at Jindalee Bowls Club, cnr Sinnamon and Yallambee roads, Jindalee, at 10.30am.

People interested in attending can phone Jubilee Community Care to book a place on 3871 3220.



Jubilee services and aged care finances in spotlight at forum

Guest speakers from Jubilee Community Care and Lifepath Financial Planning will be at a free forum at the Jindalee Hotel on November 14 from 9am-12.30pm.

Jubilee director Shaun Riley will talk on accessing aged care services generally as well as how Jubilee can help the elderly remain independent in their own homes.

Lifepath senior financial advisor Brad Monk will discuss the recent changes to calculating Government Pension entitlements and how the new aged care financial environment will affect your ability to pay for care when required.

Morning tea will be provided. RSVP by November 7 to Jubilee Community Care on 3871 3220.

Fond memories of Princess Diana

Commemorations surrounding the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death bought back fond memories for one Jubilee Client Support Co-ordinator.

Lorraine Kiss, pictured in her nurse’s uniform, was a young nurse at a small community hospital in Derbyshire when the Princess visited in April 1992.

“There was lots of excitement and the patients dressed in their best outfits,” Lorraine recalled. “We had tea and cakes and Princess Diana talked about her boys. “Diana was tall, beautiful and very calm, she took her time talking to the patients.”
