Without a doubt the most enjoyable part of what we do is spending time with our residents. I was fortunate enough to host a Directors lunch at our Park Avenue village in Rockhampton on Tuesday last week with Melissa. It was great to catch up with our many residents, some of whom I toured at various open days during the sell down of the village. It was especially pleasing to share conversations about their time at Oak Tree, the many activities they enjoy, the companionship they share as well as some entertaining stories of their recent travels. I assure you it’s the most rewarding and enriching part of what we do. We enjoyed an Italian influenced luncheon as I updated all residents on what’s going on in and around all our villages. Robyn and Dave, our Village Managers in Park Avenue, are treasured by our residents. So much so that they received a special praise and thank you by an impromptu resident speech. The other enjoyable part of these luncheons is that I receive plenty of good advise on parenting my young family. I can assure you I listen intently and have become a better dad as a result. To all my residents – Thank you!
