St George ladies support local Aged Care Service
The small town of St George in Western Queensland is a close knit community who like to support each other through thick and thin. The residents of Warrawee Aged Care Service are lucky enough to be recipients of this generous support.
Friends of Warrawee comprises a group of dedicated ladies who work to make the lives of the residents at the Aged Care Service more enjoyable and comfortable.
Members of the group liaise closely with Service Manager Julie Bryant to understand the needs of the residents, and to learn about the Palliative Care approach developed by Churches of Christ Care.
Over the past year, they have used this specialised approach to provide goods and services to put together a Palliative Care Kit for the service.
The kit included:
- A CD player and CDs
- Coffee mugs
- Water glasses
- Coloured bed sheets
- Two beautiful patchwork quilts made by the St George Quilting Group.
Also included in the kit were high quality Australian towels that the Friends of Warrawee purchased from the Rogan family farm 'Benelong' in St George Queensland. The family business uses innovative, sustainable farming practices and reciprocal industry support which has led to the creation of their Australian Super Cotton and superior garments and textiles.
The ladies involved in this project found it very rewarding and said it was nice to provide something special that will make a difference to the residents and their family to provide some extra comfort.
