Golf Day 2019

Thursday, 14 November 2019


 10:00 am 

 ​​ Observatory Golf Club Bedfordview 

The now installed Water Pressure Pump at Forget-Me-Not is pushing 6-Bar Pressure, supplying 2 Kilo-litres water in 2 hours, to the 3 respective floors of our highly fragile Alzheimers/Dementia section, now warranting sufficient water access throughout every day

Thanks to the host (Synbarr) and all the players of the first Synbarr Golf Day that was held on Thursday, Nov 14th, 2019 at the gorgeous Observatory Golf Club –
especially on behalf of, and, to the benefit of:
Park Care Centre (Frail Persons) & Sighthound Sanctuary (Frail Dogs)

several dedicated golfers arrived on the morning of the event …..even when it was cloudy and chilled, and the heavens opened up with drenching rains the night before, with other golfers canceling at the last minute and few more indicators that the day could go wrong for everyone………

But Alas! By the kindness of The Lord’s mercy and grace…..

It turned out to be a winning event for all….pleasant, beautiful weather, delightful social and dinner, with prizes and fun and auctioning…… enjoyable people who changed the forecasts and turned it into a splendid event wherewith both charities benefitted greatly (considering it being a first time golf day fundraising event for both organisations)

To Elaine and Dan, Sabine and Erika, and the Golfing Team of The Day – thank you for making a vast difference by opening the door and granting access to one of Park Care’s many dreams, to come true

Management and staff were astounded by the amount raised for each charity – and with immediate effect, this generous gift was earmarked to purchase a Water Pressure Pump that was urgently needed to help increase the restricted flow of water supply to all 3

These diamond earrings (3 x new sets) were donated by a family member of one of our residents to help raise funds – in this case for Park Care to:
– Leap into action and recondition several facilities, (mid care to assisted living) Jakaranda building bathrooms, toilets and showers, that are in plain sight of noticeable wear and tear
– Sponsor, within our fragile community of 300-320 residents, several disadvantaged frail people from all walks of life, for nursing care, accommodation, medical expenses etc….
– Generate substantial income to sustain, maintain & improve where possible, the quality nursing care & accommodation offered continuously to 300-320 infirm, frail, nursing-care dependent residents, people from all income groups and colour and culture and status to experience excellent and blissful quality life and specialized nursing care

We are grateful for your noble action to assist in keeping this long-established frail nursing care centre in ship shape condition and in perfected frail nursing care services!

60 Years | Diamond Celebration

Friday, 8 October 2021


This will be an in-house event only due to Covid protection for our vulnerable at risk residents (high care, intensive care, mid care, assisted living It is sad though that this milestone cannot be entertained along with family, friends, and other guests.

Management has endeavored to continue with arrangements as per the norm for our previous open-house events:

  • Music from 1961
  • Guest Speaker (to be announced)
  • Memorabilia – small token (perhaps a soft toy for keyring complete with logo and 60 Years…) for Residents (300) and maybe also for Board Members, Staff (200) – sponsorship/contributions needed
  • We have also asked the school volunteers on the Community Hours platform to bake a cake and decorate for 60th birthday – 1st, 2nd, 3rd prizes plus the required community hours volunteer services rendered (5 hours per cake donated) – require about 25 cakes for residents only and another 10-15 cakes for staff
  • Clothing from the 1961 era – donations required for residents’ dress-up

o   Park Care staff will revert to their rock ‘n roll outfits (rock ‘n roll era somewhat blends with the 1961 classic style of dress codes, music, and movie themes)

  • Noting that 60 Years signifies a Diamond Jubilee – we also would like to ask for donations of “BLING” items eg costume jewelry, belts, and other articles with which residents can be dressed up with
  •  The catering people at Park Care (Reef Caterers) is sponsoring the lunch for residents – hamburgers and chips
  • I have 2 x donors who pledged ice cream and milk for milkshakes and ice-cream cones (which the residents absolutely love)
  •  Park Care’s (retired) nursing manager’s spouse is a professional photographer and has consented to take photographs during the event
  • Rosebank Killarney Gazette will have a journalist covering the events for the day

note: health and safety measurements will be applied to the few selected visitors

Once again, as always, Park Care depends on the support of the outer communities to enhance the lives of the frail resident community, enlightening the day-to-day norm of a 24/7 nursing care dependent lifestyle.

Park Care cannot be who we are and do what we do without the support of families, friends, new associations – augmenting the daily living of 300 residents with special events, treats, gifts, activities – doing all we can to make each resident feel special, striving to uphold their dignity, endorsing each one’s valuable worth

In the interim – frequent posting on our facebook page will contain various announcements (extracts from 1961 news and events), Park Care history, specified itemized donations requests, snippets from board members & staff (where attainable) and others related pieces.
