Official Opening of Extensions to Terrace Gardens

The 32 bed extension to the Terrace Gardens Residential Aged Care facility in Palmerston, NT is now open. The facility now consists of two 32 bed buildings named Jabiru and Kakadu and a 24 bed memory support building named Litchfield. The expanded kitchen not only provides meals to the residential facility but provides 1,000 meals per month via Meals on Wheels to the wider community.

Bilawara Lee provided a warm Welcome to Country to all in attendance. Alan Wilson, Group Executive of Blue Care Regional and Remote Service welcomed everyone and thanked those involved in the project. Peter Jones, General Secretary UCA Synod provided the Blessing and Anne Cross, Chair of the ARRCS Board, unveiled the plaque with the help of an 84 year old resident.

Terrace Gardens is operated by Australian Regional & Remote Community Services (ARRCS). ARRCS currently operate ten residential care facilities with a combined capacity of 385 beds, and 11 community care programs in Darwin, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine, Mutitjulu and Docker River. Some of the services are specifically for Indigenous Australians, while others are more generally for older people, people with a disability, clients discharged from hospital including individuals and carers in need of support.
