Update 20 November 2020

Hello everyone

13th consecutive days of no local community transmission is great news for NSW. Interestingly, NSW Health has encouraged people living in and around Batemans Bay to get tested after fragments of the virus were detected in samples taken this week from the sewerage system. As our Government is continually seeking out the areas in our community of where the virus could be lurking, let us continue to do our bit by remaining vigilant and upkeep our hand hygiene and social distancing.

All residents and staff remain well and safe.

We thank you for your patience as we are being squeezed out of the car park spaces to allow the builders to finalise aspects of the new build.

As we prepare to head into summer, decluttering can be difficult – especially when they are of sentimental value. Here are some tips on how you may wish to do to help your loved one to prepare for the move and project your inner Marie-Kondo

  • Spend some time over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas and engage with conversations around certain items in their rooms
  • Check with them during these discussions if you can help to declutter and take those items away
  • If there is resistance, leave it, or try again in the following weeks
  • Ask them how they imagine their new living areas would be

Thank you, everyone, for your help.
