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.
