First established in 1886, Avon Cosmetics has been empowering women for over 130 years. Sadly, quite recently Avon has announced it’s decision to close operations in Australia and New Zealand in 2018.
Avon and Carrington have had a long standing relationship. Recognising this, recently Grasmere Terrace had one last Avon sale, giving their residents from our retirement village and from Grasmere Terrace facility the opportunity to purchase some last time offers on products and skin care. Giving our residents the opportunity to purchase external goods for their own personal use has always remained important to us.
A big thank you to Kim Scholte for making these fantastic products available for our residents.
Morning Melodies at the Campbelltown Catholic Club is a regular fixture on the Leisure and Lifestyle program down at Mary Mackillop. Earlier this month, 21 residents from the facility attended the latest concert. This concert in particular was a special occasion, as Rowena, a staff member from Mary Mackillop was the first act of the morning.
Rowena was mesmerising with her classic tunes, and you could have heard a pin drop as the whole audience watched in awe. Our residents were very much amazed by her talent!
Rowena was followed by Joey Fimmano who wowed the crowd with his talents on piano and the accordion. Afterwards, the residents were able to enjoy a 2 course lunch at the club- it was a great morning out for all.
Over the next few weeks we will be doing a series of educational posts designed to provide information about My Aged Care, and how you can access those services.
My Aged Care was introduced in 2013 by the Australian Federal Government, and serves as the main entry point to the aged care system in Australia (for both residential care, and getting extra help to stay at home). My Aged Care aims to make it easier for older people, their families, and carers to access information on ageing and aged care.
My Aged Care consists of the website (myagedcare.gov.au), and the My Aged Care contact centre on 1800 200 422.
My Aged Care currently provides:
1. Information about aged care to consumers, family members, and carers 2. Information for service providers 3. Online service finders that provide information about aged care providers and assessors 4. Online fee estimators for pricing on home care packages and residential care.
We know how hard it can be to navigate the aged care system for the first time. Carrington’s Customer Service Team can help you get started with My Aged Care. Call us on 1300 590 590 today.
