If you are an older person and worried about how things are changing at home, or how you are being treated, please give us a call on the Tasmanian Elder Abuse Helpline to talk it over. The situation with the Covid-19 virus has changed the way we all live and work. People are spending more time in the confines of home without the other social supports and respite they may normally have. This can create many pressures. Don’t worry alone – give us a call to find out what support is available. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks Curtis! 😀😀Our #waveofgratitude stories highlighting our incredible workforce continue.
Today we share Curtis' story:

Meet Curtis.
Curtis joined the Glenview team in 2019 and he says he loves his role as garden officer.
Here he explains his love for horticulture and why he enjoys working in the gardens at Glenview:
“My pop is a farmer and when I was growing up, I often helped around the farm, looking after his sheep and removing thistles and such.
The main jobs I work on in the gardens at Glenview are pruning, planting, mowing, general clean up, irrigation and more.
My favourite aspect of my job is the community at Glenview.
I get a decent amount of positive feedback from residents about the gardens and it makes me motivated to make their home more inviting.
I’m looking forward to making the gardens bigger and better than before.”
