Memorable year at Peninsula Village
Peninsula Village Retirement Centre in Umina has had a successful and memorable year, according to chief executive officer Ms Terri Parker.
"As 2009 draws to a close Peninsula Village Retirement Centre, in its 34th year of operation, celebrates yet another exciting, successful and fun-filled 12 months," Ms Parker said.
"The 450 residents, 320 staff members and 45 volunteers are all busy preparing for the festive season with many Christmas celebrations and exciting events taking place."
According to Ms Parker, some of the highlights for the retirement centre this year have included the installation of a $250,000 generator to ensure all residents remain safe during power shortages and other emergencies, the opening of a 12-bed dementia wing, winner of the Employer of the Year Award for School Based Traineeships and Brisbane Water Secondary College students completion of their first year of school-based traineeships.
Ms Parker also acknowledged the centre's accreditation until 2012 and the successful organisation of events throughout the year including the Central Coast's inaugural Memory Walk to raise money for Alzheimer's Australia.
