Garden day to help support aged care

TARALGA Retirement Village is hosting their first ever garden day this Saturday.

The garden day is aimed at raising funds for the retirement village, with money going towards equipment needed for care giving.

Kaye Blanch, from the Taralga Retirement Village, said the decision was made to combat government cuts to aged care.

"It was decided to hold a garden day, and combine this with the sale of equipment that is no longer required,” Mrs Blanch said.

"As funding continues to be cut to aged care, it is becoming difficult for small facilities like Taralga to remain viable.”

Mrs Blanch said the money raised would be used to support the village's 22 residents, by upgrading the village's equipment and facilities.

"There will be several stalls set up on Saturday, including craft made by residents, plants and multiple raffles,” Mrs Blanch said.

"The comfort and well-being of our elderly depends upon the extra money this will generate, and we are extremely grateful to the generous donations made by so many.”

Taralga Retirement Village is located at 93 High St, Jandowae, with the Garden Day running from 9am-1pm.
