Stapleton House Birthday Party

Stapleton House, RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village’s dementia care unit recently celebrated their 21st Anniversary. Residents enjoyed a delicious three-course lunch and was entertained with live music by their local talent, Charlie Saliba.

Heather Atkinson, a resident who is always the live of a party was invited to cut the cake. “It’s such a honour to be asked to cut the cake. I truly enjoy all the parties the staff at the Village organise for all of us residents and always make an effort to attend.” 

Leanne Gallagher, Leisure & Lifestyle Manager at RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village, has been with the Village for over 10 years and knows how important it is that residents feel comfortable and safe.

“Stapleton House is very special to me because it is a place where everyone is accepted for who they are, where people are cared for as individuals and where their family and friends are always welcome,” Leanne commented.

Care Manager, Lee-Anne Gayler, added “Dementia is not a kind disease and the team here work really hard to get to know each of our residents and their loved ones so that we can create the best experience for each person who lives here.”

RFBI Lake Haven Masonic Village was built in 1991 to meet the growing need for residential aged care services in the area. Seven years later (1998) Stapleton House (a dementia-specific unit) was added to the Village and in 1996, the RFBI Retirement Village was established in the adjacent block.

It was lovely to see just how close the Village community was and it was clear the genuine affection staff and residents have for each other during the wonderful celebrations.
