It’s wonderful to be heading towards Christmas in the knowledge that we can be reunited with family and friends. These last two years have been trying for all of us and I am so glad that we can all move around freely in the community again. The article on page 8 highlights how important it is to retain community connections, no matter our age, while on page 10 Ted reminds us how important it is to rest.
Our General Manager Home Care Services Connie Bruckard retired in late October. Connie had been with us for almost a decade and worked tirelessly to support our clients to live well at home. If you met Connie at one of our gatherings you will understand how much she will be missed by all of us at Anglicare.
We’ve included some seasonal reminders in this edition. Our weather was incredibly unpredictable during Spring but there is sure to be hot weather ahead. Check our simple checklist on page 5 to make sure you are prepared.
Did you catch the recent ABC series ‘Fires’? It was a sobering reminder of how important it is to be prepared for the bushfire season. If you live in an area that the Tasmania Fire Service thinks is at risk, you will receive an information package from us (page 7).
We’ve launched our Christmas Appeal so that we can provide people with Christmas cheer and assist families with back-to school expenses. We are also grateful to be a recipient of the ABC Giving Tree Appeal again this year.
May God bless you and your families this Christmas and I look forward to talking with you again in the New Year.Publication Type: Newsletter Publication Date: December 2021 Anglicare's Connect Newsletter - Dec 2021 (Issue 10)
