Vin­nies’ gar­den help for dis­trict se­niors

The Western Star - - NEWS -

A NEW Vin­nies’ ser­vice will help Roma area se­niors keep their gar­dens spick and span.

The Vin­nies Queens­land Home and Gar­den Main­te­nance and Travel Ser­vice will of­fer a help­ing hand to se­nior res­i­dents of Roma and sur­round­ing towns, giv­ing ci­ti­zens their in­de­pen­dence by help­ing them main­tain their homes and gar­dens.

The ser­vice not only helps res­i­dents to stay in their own home safely and fixes gar­den is­sues, it also will also pro­vide travel for shop­ping and help in at­tend­ing med­i­cal ap­point­ments.

The ser­vice runs in Roma, Su­rat, Mitchell, Yuleba, Wal­lum­billa, Amby, Muckadilla and In­june.

“It’s a unique way for el­i­gi­ble peo­ple to keep liv­ing where they feel most com­fort­able for as long as pos­si­ble, said Vin­nies Queens­land Com­mon­wealth Home Sup­port co-or­di­na­tor for Roma Emma White.

“The ser­vice is avail­able to Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der peo­ple older than 55 years and non-indige­nous clients older than 65 years who are as­sessed and pri­ori­tised for the help they re­ceive.”

Ms White said the ser­vice saved peo­ple the costs as­so­ci­ated with stay­ing in their own res­i­dences.
