MADE WITH CARE
THE scaffolding is down and the first round of residents are preparing to move in to PresCare’s $100 million Kingsford Terrace retirement community in Corinda.
Residents will start making themselves at home in the Litchfield building from mid-November.
Among those ready to make the move is Norma Spinetti, who lived in nearby Chelmer for 50 years.
“I had an old Queenslander and the steps got to me. I realised I couldn’t stay there,” she said, adding she was not satisfied with retirement options in the area until she saw the plans for Kingsford Terrace.
“My daughter just lives over the road, and they took me around to see it, and I decided on it.”
Ms Spinetti will move into her new two-bedroom home within weeks, and said she had already made use of the project’s concierge service.
“I didn’t want to leave the area because I have got a lot of friends and there are a couple moving up (to Kingsford Terrace). I’ve also made friends with a few of the people moving in,” she said.
The next stage of Kingsford Terrace comes as PresCare has been named a finalist in the Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Business Awards in the new investment category for its growth of home-based services and transition to Consumer Directed Care.
