New buses for Southern Cross Care

October 1, 2017

Residents from Southern Cross Care’s  (SCC) Success Retirement Village and Frank Prendergast House can enjoy being able to get out and about, and remain connected to the local community thanks to the purchase of two new buses.

The buses, which are driven by SCC volunteers, will be used across all of SCC’s villages and residential care homes to transport residents to social outings, shopping expeditions and other local amenities.

To ensure the buses meet the needs of residents with mobility issues, one of the buses will also have a lift for wheelchair access and fixtures for locking wheelchairs in place.

The buses were recently put to good use transporting several residents to the ‘Have a Go’ day event held on Wednesday 1St November at Burswood Park as part of Seniors Week.

SCC Group CEO Errol Turner said the purchase of the new buses reflected the organisation’s commitment to supporting residents health and wellbeing.

“We know how important it is to the general health and wellbeing of our residents that they are able to remain active by attending social events and visiting local community amenities such as the shopping centre on a regular basis.

“We hope Success Village and Frank Prendergast House residents enjoy using the new buses and staying connected to the local Success community,” Errol said.
