We sat down with Daz Smith, Director of Dementia Excellence here at Greengate, to talk about his care approach for our residents living with Dementia. Daz has been with Greengate since December 2017, and in that time we have embraced a variety of changes to our care model and the way we train our village care teams. Here is what Daz had to say:

Visit the community, get to know our team and discover just how different retirement living and aged care can be.
It’s been a month since we opened our doors to St Patrick’s Green, Kogarah and the time has just flown by. Our first retirement living residents are already settled into the Village and are enjoying all of the free time that Village life affords. The Greengate team have loved watching our residents get to know each other better over morning tea in the café each day, and have had to exercise a lot of self-restraint by not eating all of the delicious cakes our Head Chef, Nelson has been preparing. Judith, our very first resident to move in, summed it up simply and perfectly: “St Patrick’s Green is a beautiful place.”
Located in Kogarah, St Patrick’s Green is a new retirement and aged care home designed to specialise in memory support for those living with dementia. Our experienced team is hosting an important discussion and education event for the community with the support of leading advocate, Sue Pieters-Hawke.
Spring is just around the corner, and this quarter’s Village Green is in bloom with all of the latest news from the Greengate Villages. A lot has been happening at our Retirement Villages and Boutique Aged Care Homes these past few months. As usual, our residents have been busy bees with plenty of social events and activities to attend. The Greengate team and residents are all looking forward to our upcoming events now that the weather is starting to warm up – hopefully we will see you there!
Winter is well and truly here, and this quarter’s Village Green is as fresh as those winter mornings. Greengate has seen a lot of excitement this past quarter, with St Luke’s Green, Woolloongabba opening its doors in April. It’s been a pleasure getting to know our latest residents better as they settle into their new homes in the Independent Retirement Apartments and the Residential Aged Care Home.
This month, St Patrick’s Green hit a major milestone as the concrete structure was completed. This was such an exciting moment for our new Retirement Village and Aged Care Home in Kogarah, so we celebrated by having a Topping Out Ceremony to formally mark the occasion. Everyone dressed in their finest hard hats and vests, and made their way to the roof of The O’Farrell building which is 12 storeys high. We were lucky to have a sunny afternoon, so the views from the roof were stunning – we could see all the way from Sydney, across Botany Bay, and then down to the boats in the Georges River and Cronulla.
