On Sunday 17 April 2016, members of the IPS attended the Open Day of ‘Steyi’, the new Fronditha Care residential aged care facility at Clayton. They were taken on a tour of the facility and were left in awe of the amazing state of the art amenities.
The completion of ‘Steyi’ is the first of a three stage 20 million dollar rebuild of Fronditha Care Clayton. The new facility boasts light-filled open spaces, comfortable lounge areas, inviting dining rooms, a softly furnished library, large bedrooms with private ensuites, balconies, a hairdressing salon, a large chapel and more. ‘Steyi’ is also unique in that it has a wing that will specialise in the care of Multiple Sclerosis sufferers.
The Society has had a long association with Fronditha Care which is Victoria’s largest provider of culturally and linguistically diverse aged care to those of Greek heritage. We have provided financial support over the years and this, our Centenary year, is no exception with the Society pledging $5000 to Fronditha’s 2016 3XY Radiothon. We know first-hand of the high quality care provided to our own members who have needed Fronditha’s assistance.
Community support is vital for the future of Fronditha Care. You too can support the Radiothon and help the elderly in our community. Details of the Radiothon are:
