People who live with Dementia can become anxious and frightened at times and may have trouble recognising people. Their behaviour can be unusual or awkward and they may find it hard to express themselves or understand people. However, feelings remain as does spiritual awareness. Visits can stimulate warm feelings, bring comfort and reaffirm spiritual truths.

We sat down with Daz Smith, Director of Dementia Excellence here at Greengate
, to talk about his care approach for our residents living with Dementia. Daz has been with Greengate since December 2017, and in that time we have embraced a variety of changes to our care model and the way we train our village care teams. Here is what Daz had to say:
Goodbye summer; hello cooler days, cups of tea and comfy sweaters. Autumn is here, bringing with it the latest edition of the Village Green. This newsletter is packed full of information, as the last few months have been an exciting time for each of Greengate’s

St Brigid’s Green, Maroubra is excited to be the first Aged Care Home in Australia to be trialing the new app Care Konnect. This mobile phone app has been designed to help residents, their family and friends to stay connected, and to keep up-to-date with what’s been happening at St Brigid’s Green. This is something we have wanted to do for a long time, and we think it is going to be a positive step into the future for all of us in the St Brigid’s Green community.
Wow, the St Brigid’s Green Open Day was such a great morning! Last Saturday, our Independent Retirement Living and Aged Care Village in Maroubra opened to its doors to the public. Throughout the morning we welcomed around 300 people into the Greengate Village to show them what life at St Brigid’s Green is all about.
