ONE OF the Southern Highlands' leading retirement
communities is about to enter a new era.
The not-for-profit Christian organisation Living Care (a
Ministry of Churches of Christ in NSW) was established in
1938 to provide aged care throughout metropolitan and
Its services include independent living units, high and low
care residential facilities and a range of services designed to
give elderly people the support they need to stay in their own
home safely and securely for as long as possible.
Living Care is a proud supporter of "The Grand Plan",
a community-driven campaign aiming to highlight the
importance of the grand people in our lives and to raise
awareness of the issues surrounding aged care.
Henley Brae in Mittagong has been acquired by Living
Care, an organisation that has been providing retirement
living and aged care services for more than 70 years.
Living Care already enjoys an established presence in the
Southern Highlands through its church in Bowral.
Living Care executive director Graham Reed said his
organisation was attracted to Henley Brae not only because
of its great location, but also particularly for the shared
values of the village's previous operators, The Blissett Group.
"As a seniors' living organisation, we believe we are
responsible for providing care that promotes the physical,
social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of every individual
in our care," Mr Reed said.

Mr Reed said the acquisition of Henley Brae was aligned
with Living Care's commitment to providing services for
people over 65, particularly in areas such as the Southern
"Living Care has
always recognised the
need for the provision of
exceptional care for our
population as they age,"
"This need is
increasing and we are
expanding what we do
Mr Reed also said
Living Care would look
to build on Henley Brae's
excellent reputation in
the community. We have
no doubt that Living
Care will not only maintain, but also continue to enhance this
quality of life for those who live there well into the future.
"Our aim is to retain existing staff and contracts with local
businesses," he said.
"The village is in an excellent location given the proximity to
shopping and transport and there is room for expansion on
vacant land within the village," he said.
