After losing everything they owned in a scam, Joy and Bruce were worried about their future. It was not until they stepped through the doors at Juniper Rowethorpe that they found hope.

“I called Juniper Rowethorpe to come and have a look at one of their apartments and I burst into tears, it was all I had dreamed of. It had three bedrooms, one bathroom, and a balcony and they offered it to us that day,” Joy said.

Joy and Bruce were living in community housing when Bruce was diagnosed with Dementia and his specialists recommended they plan for their future and start looking at residential aged care homes.

Juniper Rowethorpe is a multi-service site with four residential homes, retirement living options, respite facilities, a pharmacy, a medical centre, and a Day Therapy and Living and Learning Centre.

Joy and Bruce both moved into their Rowethorpe apartment in March 2021, and a year later, Bruce moved across to Juniper Annesley Residential Aged Care.

“All my prayers were answered when we were offered a place at Rowethorpe. They had everything we needed right on our doorstep and a beautiful friendly community. Our family, especially our grandkids love coming to visit.”

“Living here meant I could walk to see Bruce every day and that our future was secure. After everything we had been through, it was like the light at the end of a tunnel,” Joy added.

Joy also receives Juniper Home Care services to help her continue to live independently in the comfort of her own home.

“The Juniper Home and Community Care team helps me once a week with my cleaning and shopping. It helps me keep my independence and gives me more time to spend with Bruce.”
