St Brigid's Green Open Day

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. 

The Village Green was abuzz all morning with residents and visitors gathering to enjoy the live entertainment and a sausage sizzle out in the sun. We loved to see so many of our residents dancing along to the music, it really added to the already fantastic atmosphere around the Village. Outside on the Village Green has always been our favourite place to entertain at St Brigid’s Green; as the weather starts to warm up we will be hosting more resident and family events outside in the heart of our vibrant seniors’ community.

Inside, we ran a constant stream of tours throughout our Boutique Aged Care Home and the Retirement Village. It was nice to see so many people from the local Maroubra community showing an interest in our Village, either for themselves or for a loved one. St Brigid’s Green is an Integrated Care Village offering all levels of care, from Independent Living with the option for Assisted Living in your own apartment, to 24-hour care in our beautiful Aged Care Home.

Whilst also manning the barbecue, Alan, our Head Chef, put on a fantastic morning tea full of cakes, fruit and cheese platters. At St Brigid’s Green, we always believe that no celebration is complete without delicious food. Our Maroubra Village prides itself on providing fresh and nutritious meals to our residents. Each week, many of our residents choose to eat dinner in the Dining Room with friends and family – the seasonal menu has something for everyone and our commercial kitchen is equipped to cater to our residents’ individual dietary requirements.

A big thank you goes out to the team at St Brigid’s Green, not only were they hard at work, but they still took the time to chat to visitors and create a great environment at the Village. An even bigger thank you to our residents for welcoming so many people into their community: your friendly smiles and helpful information made our visitors feel welcome, and allowed them to appreciate what a special place St Brigid’s Green is.

The Open Day was a fantastic success, and we’re glad we could showcase our Village to local seniors, as well as interact with the Maroubra community. Finally, thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy weekend to attend the St Brigid’s Green Open Day. We hope to see you all again soon.
