Meet Stewart, one of our long-term residents at Villa Pelletier.
Stewart was a helicopter engineer in his former life. When he expressed to our pastoral care team how much he missed flying, we reached out to gift-giving platform Connect the 40% platform to make his wish come true. Thanks to a generous donation from a stranger, Stewart took to the skies from Jandakot airport to relive the old days and lift his mental wellbeing.
It’s a sad reality that 40% of residents in aged care homes will not receive visitors this Christmas.
To combat loneliness this festive season, we have partnered with Connect the 40% to deliver personalised gifts and experiences to residents like Stewart who are most at risk of isolation. You can give generously by visiting connectthe40.com and help transform our residents’ simple wishes into unforgettable memories.
