Christine Wagstaff brings a passion for offering choice and independence in aged care to her role as community consultant at Seasons Aged Care. Working in the aged care and retirement living sector for a number of years, Christine has helped many people make informed choices about their aged care options. But it was joining Seasons in 2017 that allowed Christine to really offer a true nursing home alternative to support seniors to live life their way with the personalised care they need.
“I believe what we offer here at Seasons is a home away from home, where our residents are respected, have independence, dignity and support without intrusion in a caring environment,” says Christine. “We’re creating an experience where the family have the peace of mind that their loved ones are being looked after in a loving, caring capacity,” Christine says that Seasons is able to do this by offering its residents independent living in their own self-contained apartment with care delivered in the privacy of their own home through a home care model.
“I am very passionate about our aged care community and believe it offers something different for people needing care within the wider Bribie community. A big part of my role is letting people know how we are different and allow them to see what we offer for themselves,” says Christine. “I enjoy being able to educate local businesses, health professionals and residents about our alternative solution to residential aged care by showcasing the quality of our accommodation and care. I believe that the service I provide is a company education as well as industry-wide options and choices to give prospective residents the full knowledge to make informed decisions.
“I love connecting with people and putting them at ease in what can be a stressful time. I find my work incredibly rewarding as I strive to help people to make the right decision for them.” Seasons Bribie Island is home to 72 one-bedroom units. The small intimate community is welcoming and friendly. It’s a place where everyone knows your name and it’s easy to get from your apartment to the community areas. “Our community has a really lovely feel, which makes it a pleasure to come to work every day,” says Christine.
“The community areas have recently had a facelift, with new paint, carpet and furniture giving the reception, dining room and sitting areas a fresh, modern look,” says Christine. “The beauty of living at Seasons is that you can come and go as you please – enjoy the privacy of your apartment and soak up the view from your balcony or get involved in the range of lifestyle activities.
“There’s always something happening, a friend to chat with or an organised activity to keep you active and engaged.” Seasons Bribie Island is affordable, starting at just $180,600, and ensures you enjoy an independent lifestyle with the very best in care close at hand.
