“It’s a good place. It’s a family. As I always say, we all live at 881 Kingston Road.”
Bert, Waterford West
“It takes lots of responsibilities of your shoulders.”
Val, Sinnamon Park
"I could bring my puppy dog with me."
“It’s an easy-going place to live in. It’s better than living with relatives as you can do as you like. There’s a theatre here and libraries. There’s a lounge room you can go and sit in. We’ve got a nice barbecue area. I was living on my own in Melbourne and it wasn’t a very good idea. Here, I’m on a care package and I don’t do anything! They do my dishes, make my bed and put the washing on. Meals are provided too.”

“I liked the idea that Mum could be independent and have her own apartment because she’d come from her own home. But I knew as she got older that she would need care so I was looking for somewhere that she could have ongoing care. Envigor provides her care and they’ve been very good. I just liked the idea of Seasons, that it was a smallish place and everybody knows each other so I was looking for that. It’s worked out well.”
“I didn’t come here to die. I came here to live and I’m living!”
Ken, Sinnamon Park
"My wife has early onset dementia, and this was a godsend for us, because now I can be with her, and she can be with me."
Eileen, Bribie Island
“I’ve been living here for five years. I have a nephew living on the coast and they heard wonderful reports about Seasons so they decided if I liked it here I could come. So, I had an inspection and I was very impressed. I liked the gardens and the different units I saw. I’m living on a ground unit and I’ve got a lot of light, it’s very nicely designed. I like the carers – they are very interesting people, they enjoy coming in to do our care and have a little talk sometimes and we enjoy their company. The ....
“It’s the friendships I’m forming and meeting new people. Being able to enjoy their company at our lunches and happy hour. I think coming here to Seasons is the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m really happy!”
Connie, Mango Hill
“My daughter found Seasons and when she saw the garden at the front she thought ‘Mum would like this place’ and she asked if I wanted to have a look. I came up and had a look and said ‘Yes, I’ll have it!’ I have a great garden and friends here.”
June, Bribie Island
“I enjoy it. I have a lot of friends here and I can come and go as I please.”
“I like the feeling that I’m very safe. There are people around all the time and at night they’ve got security cameras. It’s a good feeling. I’ve made good friends here and we all meet for happy hour. I’d been very sick and the doctor didn’t want me to live on my own anymore. My son lives here at Mooloolaba, so he thought it would be good if I could come up here to the Sunshine Coast. He looked around at quite a lot of places and he found that this was the best one. Everything is looked after and ....
