From the General Manager

Welcome to the Spring edition of Home Stories . I hope that you’re enjoying the sunnier, warmer and longer days and noticing the signs of Spring all around you. We’ve got lots to share with you in this edition. We’ve included a snapshot of the results from our 2022 Resident Satisfaction Survey. The surveys are an important opportunity for us to hear from you - your thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Your feedback helps us to understand what you’re happy with and where we need to improve, so a very big thank you to everyone who took the time to respond. We held some great resident events in September, including an event at Bunnings Windsor Gardens where our residents were able to paint their own plant pot to take home while learning all about plant care. We also held a coffee morning with Helen Carmichael from the Eastern Collaborative Project who spoke to some of our residents about the important upcoming reforms to in-home aged care. We caught up with our immensely creative resident

The survey is aimed at helping us understand how our residents feel about the Home Stories newsletter, Housing Choices website and our social media channels, so that our communications are better for you. Your feedback is very welcome! We also have some money saving tips and adorable photos of your pets. I hope you enjoy this edition of Home Stories, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our end of year celebrations. Stay safe and well,

Our annual Residents’ Day event took place on 4 October. It was a

wonderful day where we celebrated with residents at the Klemzig Community Centre to the theme of achievements over the past five years – and there were many to celebrate! It was so lovely to be able to meet and speak with so many of you and reflect on the last year. You can see photos from the day on page 10. On the topic of events, it’s not long until our Housing Choices South Australia Festive Season Celebrations kick off! We’re holding three end of year gatherings and you can find the details in the enclosed invitation and RSVP flier. All residents are invited and every year the events book up quickly. If you’d like to come along, make sure you RSVP as soon as you can by filling out the flier and sending it back using the enclosed reply-paid envelope by 30 November.
