Carin­ity Karinya turns 50

The Queensland Times - - NEWS -

A LAIDLEY aged-care com­mu­nity partly funded by money raised by the lo­cal com­mu­nity has just cel­e­brated a ma­jor mile­stone.

Carin­ity Karinya Place turned 50 on Novem­ber 30, with res­i­dents, fam­ily mem­bers and staff mem­bers past and present cel­e­brat­ing the mile­stone with a morn­ing tea.

Carin­ity Karinya Place care man­ager Kathy Ni­cholls said it was won­der­ful to re­flect on how the fa­cil­ity had trans­formed over the past five decades.

“Karinya Place is now a 62room com­mu­nity with around 80 staff and is one of the largest em­ploy­ers in the Laidley dis­trict. We are proud to have such an im­por­tant con­nec­tion with the com­mu­nity over many years,” Ms Ni­cholls said.

“Laidley is such a won­der­ful place to live and we are happy to have pro­vided a com­fort­able home for res­i­dents who love the dis­trict.”

HIS­TORIC MO­MENT: Bobby Cur­tis and Joy Mutzel­burg.
