Garden Opening

Jane Edmanson, 3AW presenter, and City of Moreland Mayor, CR John Kavanagh officially opened our beautifully renovated gardens at Benetas Colton Close on Thursday 20th September alongside residents, families and staff from the aged care organisation in Glenroy.

Jane Edmanson hosted the event and Mayor of Moreland CR John Kavanagh assisted resident Susanne Kenny cut the ribbon to officially open the garden. The gardens were populated with specially chosen plants and materials that are designed to stimulate resident’s memories – different smells, sounds and textures that connect the past to the present. The end result is are beautiful, memory inspiring gardens that staff and residents at Benetas Garden Close can enjoy in the coming summer months.

The gardens were only made possible thanks to a generous bequest from a former resident of Colton Close. Once you have taken care of your friends, loved ones and family, leaving a bequest to Benetas in your will could be one of the most important gifts you ever make. It can make a significant difference to the lives of thousands of older Victorians now and for many years to come.
