A heartwarming story about our RiverSea Mosman Park community

22 March 2019

Today there was a great article in the Post about our wonderful RiverSea Mosman Park community. Denise farewelled her Mum, Yolanda, last week with a funeral service at RiverSea Mosman Park. Denise visited the facility up to four times a day and worked with our team to care for her. Both Denise and Yolanda loved being at RiverSea. Denise said “when she was here mum had dignity and pride”.

Recognising the community environment, Denise said “I also like how the maintenance man and gardener knew every resident”.

Curtin Heritage Living is a real community comprising residents, their loved ones and their carers. We work as a genuine team.

We aim also to contribute to the wider community and will be providing education to members of the local community who live with a loved one with dementia or memory loss. Join us on March 27 at 6pm at Wearne Cottesleo for our ‘Nurturing Care Partners’ evening. Email wearne@curtinheritage.com.au for your spot.

This session is ideal for family and carers. It will be facilitated by Michelle Harris-Allsop from Care Partnerships Australia.

Our first Curtin Heritage Living bus outing

Curtin Heritage Living now has its own luxury bus for resident outings and activities. The new bus is custom fit with a specialised hoist, has space for wheel chairs and fits 12 passengers comfortably.

On our first bus trip we took a group of our RiverSea residents for an outing along the coast to visit our local beaches, Subiaco and to Kings Park where our residents took time to enjoy the sunshine and admire the views and tranquility.

Our residents at Wearne and RiverSea will enjoy regular outings to different locations around Perth in our new bus every week.
