Aged Care Employee Day

Thanks for caring.

Today is Aged Care Employee Day and it is an opportunity to celebrate our fabulous Aged Care Employees. All who work at Fresh Hope Care make a fantastic contribution to the lives of our residents every day.

With bushfires, floods and now COVID-19, there have been even greater challenges presented in the past year and we are blessed to have such a wonderful team who support each other and continue to provide the best of care to our residents. There has been such a strong focus on aged care facilities during the current pandemic and many changes have been required to help keep our staff and residents safe. These changes have affected all areas of our group and the flexibility and cooperation demonstrated has been extraordinary. 

To our aged care team, from frontline care staff, to hospitality, lifestyle, maintenance, admin, and every one of our employees, Fresh Hope Care wish to sincerely thank you for caring.

Fresh Hope Care Green Hills: Proposed Redevelopment Progress

Over the past several months we have held a number of meetings with Maitland City Council to review and re-assess our plans and have facilitated various focus groups on-site to gain valued input from residents, staff and relevant community stakeholders.

We are now excited to share some news in our journey.

In preparation for the development of our future precinct, we have recently facilitated the acquisition of 38, 40 and 42 Stronach Avenue, East Maitland and have received subsequent approval from Maitland City Council to proceed with the clearing of these sites.

Fresh Hope Care Executive General Manager, Lynn Bailey said, “Whilst we acknowledge there is still a long road ahead, this advancement is seen as a significant milestone towards the highly anticipated redevelopment of Fresh Hope Care Green Hills. We look forward to the completion of this important stage as soon as possible to allow progression to the next phase of development.
