Stretton Park Aged Care residents and the facility’s Auxiliary recently celebrated the opening of the community café with a special afternoon tea.

The event also acknowledged the generous funding received to purchase an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and refurbish the dining room.

The café is a feature of the Stretton Park redevelopment project that aims to encourage the community to visit the facility. It is open to the public Monday to Friday with a variety of food and beverage options available.

The Stretton Park Auxiliary generously donated $2500 towards the purchase of the AED, which is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.

Community funded donations paid for the refurbishment of the dining room totaling $47,000. These works included new lighting, flooring, painting and new furniture. This is now an inviting space that has received great feedback from residents and families.


We would like to hear your feedback through the community portal.
