New Year, New You?
- Created on Tuesday, 07 January 2014 14:29
It’s that time of year when people make resolutions. Each year passes so quickly, especially as we get older. Some years are great years, when good things happen, and others are best forgotten. It’s no wonder then that this time of year, a new beginning, is treated by some as a chance to reinvent themselves.
Regardless of whether you make a formal resolution, we all have goals for the future, and the new year period is as good a time as any to reflect on those goals. Perhaps you want to start eating healthier, or stay in touch with family more. Maybe you need to pay more attention to finances or to your garden.
Looking forward often involves looking back, and for Warrigal 2013 was a very big year. We opened new villages and extended a residential care home and we received funding to help us grow our communities.. We now have 700 staff and 300 volunteers working hard each day to make growing older a little bit easier for 2,400 people. Our staff does a wonderful job and we support them as much as we can. That is why we were pleased in 2013 to receive the Workplace Gender Equality agency Employer of Choice for Women award for the 10th successive year.
Warringal also developed a new five year plan for how we are going to best support older people into the future, and we launched a new name and look to represent our new focus of creating inspiring communities for older people where they can be themselves.
Each of us has 365 days to spend improving, enjoying, exploring or indulging ourselves. Whether you're planning to be a whole new you, or just the same old you we know and love for a whole new year, Warrigal is available to help you be yourself.
