An Insider's Perspective on the Sydney Housing Market 

With so much in the news about housing prices in Sydney, and many of our readers left wondering if now is a good time to sell or not, we decided to get to the bottom of our current housing market. We sat down with Shaun Ramani, a local real estate agent based in Sans Souci, to get an insider’s perspective.

St Patrick's Green Awarded Grant for Grandfriends Project

Tanya Davies, the NSW Government’s Minister for Ageing, has awarded St Patrick’s Green a grant for our Grandfriends Project.  The Project focuses on building inter-generational friendships between our Aged Care Home residents and kids from the local pre-school. Each week the kids visit our Kogarah village for morning tea and an activity which our residents help to organise. Not only does this provide a fun opportunity for the pre-schoolers to socialise with the elderly people in our community, but it also provides our residents with joy and a sense of purpose.

Visiting Someone Living with Dementia

People who live with Dementia can become anxious and frightened at times and may have trouble recognising people. Their behaviour can be unusual or awkward and they may find it hard to express themselves or understand people. However, feelings remain as does spiritual awareness. Visits can stimulate warm feelings, bring comfort and reaffirm spiritual truths.
