Local Police share tips and advice
Burpengary's Senior Safety Morning
Oak Tree Retirement Village Burpengary residents gathered in the community centre recently for a Senior Safety information morning.
Presented by the local police, residents were given advice on how best to protect their homes, valuables and even themselves from being the victims of crime.
In a question and answer scenario residents participated openly and gathered some good insights on how to stay safe, particularly as they age and seemingly feel more vulnerable.
Residents left content with some good information to ponder, commenting how great it is that they can access this kind of help and advice without even having to leave their homes.
Communal living, such as life in a village, is always a great way to feel more secure and safe, with the help of like minded people near by, and full time village staff available in the case of an emergency
