The Presbyterian Church has been supporting the independence and care of older people across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory for more than 70 years.
Presbyterian Aged Care’s vision is to provide a caring and spiritual environment where people can grow old in the way that suits them best. Our primary aim is to deliver the highest possible quality of life for older people.
As a result, we offer genuine Christian care, for people of any ethnic, socio-economic or religious background, at a rich variety of friendly and secure environments across the state.
Recreational activities plays a very important role in aged care. This is achieved through the facilitation, co-ordination and planning of leisure and recreational programs that are designed to support, challenge and enhance the psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive and physical well-being of individuals. Leisure is something we do that makes us happy. The activities provide happiness, creativity, fun, a sense of belonging and a way for the residents to express themselves.
At Ashleigh lodge we provide a wide range of activities to suit the resident's needs.
PAC Thornleigh is about to receive a refurbishment that will be more fitting for our valued people who live and work there. The new design is cohesive, with a more elegant and contemporary ambience.
Refurbishment involves making larger state-of-the-art private rooms with ensuites in the existing building and developing additional ones on an expanded footprint.
As part of a growing international movement to promote community understanding and involvement, two experts, Paul Sadler (CEO PAC NSW & ACT) and Marina Antonas (IWS Support & Development Officer) addressed a large group of interested people at Pitt Wood House about the transition into aged care. Attendees actively engaged in the discussion which was followed be a scrumptiuous afternoon tea and guided tour of Pitt Wood Day Centre and nearby residential Village.
