A group of Seasons Aged Care Bribie Island residents have become unlikely rock stars – all thanks to the craze that’s known as Bribie Rocks. The group enjoys painting their rocks and when they’re ready, hopping into the Seasons bus to hide their creations. Once they’ve hidden their newest batch, their photos are uploaded to the Bribie Rocks Facebook page along with a cryptic clue for the more than 3,700 avid rock collectors across the island.
Community reactions to the Seasons resident’s creations have been very positive, with some even extending coffee invites to the ladies involved and greeting them at the shops when they recognise them from the Facebook group. The posts also caught the attention of a local kindy, who have now arranged for their students to visit the Seasons residents in April. The Bribie Rocks project is part of Seasons’ lifestyle program that supports residents to stay engaged and involved in activities that are meaningful for them.

Seasons Bribie Island community consultant Christine Wagstaff says that this focus on lifestyle and independence with 24/7 care available is what sets Seasons apart from a traditional nursing home or residential aged care. “The beauty of living at Seasons is that you can come and go as you please. All our residents enjoy the privacy of their own 1-bedroom apartment and have the autonomy to choose the activities that interest them,” says Christine. “Seasons Bribie Island is home to 72 one-bedroom units.
Being a small and intimate community, everyone is known by name and it’s easy to get from the apartments to the community areas.” 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.
