Welcome to 2022! I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing festive season. Given how busy life gets, I truly cherished the time spent with my family. No Christmas lunch is complete in the Sonter household without a barbeque and few rounds of backyard cricket!
After the tumultuous last two years with COVID-19 forcing us to navigate many challenges, the dawn of this new year brings with it a sense of relief. It’s a new chapter and one Jubilee staff and I have been eagerly anticipating as we look forward to an exciting year ahead with renewed hope and optimism.
To kick off 2022 we are hoping to expand our activities offering in the new year to include a day respite at a center we are in the process of purchasing. We genuinely appreciate our clients’ feedback and over the years, realised there is a need for such a center. If you’re interested in finding out more, please call our office on 3871 3220.
As you know, the Queensland Government lowered border restrictions last year. Jubilee Community Care has followed the direction of the Queensland Government mandate and our staff were required to be fully vaccinated to attend work.
In this edition of the newsletter, I’d like to draw your attention to the public holidays coming up in the next few months on page 2 and how these will affect the Jubilee services offerings by our dedicated staff. Please read carefully and contact us if you have any queries.
