Why Dr Roger Feels Happy and Connected at Charingfield in Sydney’s Eastern Beaches

on Wednesday, July 10, 2024

Charingfield Aged Care Community in Waverley has become a happy home for Dr Roger, a retired Pain Specialist from North Queensland. When he decided he needed additional care and support, he wanted to move closer to his son, a senior Neurologist at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick.

Relocating to Sydney, Dr Roger and his son toured close to 10 aged care communities around the Eastern suburbs, but Charingfield was the clear winner.

“Charingfield was by far the most attractive to us. All the staff and residents were so pleasant and happy, and we loved the small house design. The other places we visited had huge communal areas and they didn’t feel like home at all.”

Roger thoroughly enjoys the daily routine he’s built here, and the security and flexibility Charingfield offers.

“I’m not only part of the Charingfield community, I’m also part of the local neighbourhood. I shop along Bronte Road and visit local restaurants and cafes – I feel very connected.

“The outdoor spaces are beautiful. I’ve always been a keen gardener and I spend a lot of time outside here, chatting to the gardening team or reading in the sunshine. I also love having my very own balcony where I can look out at all the greenery.”

Roger welcomes his son and family to his Charingfield home twice a week.

“They are the reason I moved to this part of Sydney and I love that my grandkids feel so welcome here.”
