Dementia Specific Respite for Mooroolbark

The following release from Caledenia seems like a potentially helpful addition in the area..

Caladenia’s Board of Director’s made the decision in May to purchase 13 Hilledge Lane, Mooroolbark for use as our dementia specific overnight respite facility!

It is an exciting time for us as we discuss plans for renovation from a 4 bedroom home to an 8 bedroom home, and we make our plans for furniture, fittings and gardens. The money that we have raised over the last 5 years from you – our supporters will go directly towards this project now – and will be used to renovate and fit out the new house.

We invited a group of financial members, financial supporters and VIPs to join us to “Wet the house’s head” with a glass of champagne. Harry Moyle welcomed everyone to Number 13.  Trish Maggs OAM, spoke to the guests telling the story of how she started Caladenia in 1983, how she had to beg, borrow and steal to find us a home and equipment, and how she used all her friends and contacts at the time as transport drivers, volunteers, and workers. Sarah Yeates, Caladenia’s Manager spoke of the years of work it has taken to get to this point, and Tony Smith MP thanked Caladenia’s Board, staff, volunteers and supporters for all the hard work – praising Caladenia’s true sense of Community.

Trish was overwhelmed by the final order of business – the official naming of Number 13 as “Trish Maggs House”, to be known internally as “Trish’s Place”.

As we move forward with plans and renovations – we ask you to partner with us in any way you can. Spread the word! We could not have come this far without your assistance – and we need our community’s support and backing to see this project through.

Third Community Forum

The Mooroolbark Umbrella Group hosted Mooroolbark's annual Community Forum at the Community Centre on Thursday 21 November.

Guest speaker Maggie Hamilton worked throughout the day - a smaller group of local secondary students in the morning, 150 or so senior primary students in the afternoon before addressing the subject: What's happening to our children? at the evening public forum.

Maggie has researched widely about the corporate targeting of our children for the sake of their marketing edge, and the cultivation of product dependancy. It wasn't all doom and gloom, as Maggie suggested ways that we could respond to this through more informed buying habits and through informed dialogue with our children.

Two Quiet Achiever awards were also awarded by Maggie and local MP David Hodgett - but more of those individuals next post.

Sounds enjoyable...

Something to enjoy and for a very worthy cause:

What's Happening to Our Children?

We're eagerly anticipating Maggie Hamilton visiting us in Mooroolbark. Maggie will be our guest speaker at our third Community Forum hosted annually by the Mooroolbark Umbrella Group.

Maggie is a well-informed media commentator, public speaker and author and will address some of the challenges that are faced by our children:

From this - to this!


This year - Kinglake and district is blooming! Why don't you head up that way and explore the Everard or Bundy tracks and enjoy the colours of spring! And whilst you're in the area have a coffee and some tucker in Kinglake!
