Take A Moment With Jean-Pierre

Jean-Pierre, family in Leeton

We’ve met so many inspiring people through our A Moment With… series so far, and Jean-Pierre and his mum, Irene, are no different! Jean-Pierre’s mother recently became a resident in our RFBI Leeton Masonic Village after moving from her home in Sydney. She was living independently, but finding it was becoming harder to look after herself and her home alone.

Jean-Pierre says that having the care of the RFBI team at hand every day has been reassuring – he knows his mum is safe and cared for.

“Now that she is in the village, things are a lot easier for her. Thanks to the dedication and care of the RFBI team, we’ve seen a big improvement in Mum, mentally and physically,” Jean-Pierre said.

Jean-Pierre visits his mum every day and kept in touch via phone during the visiting restrictions we put in place to protect residents from the global pandemic.

His advice to anyone else with a loved one who is struggling at home is to consider making the move into aged care if it is the right choice for them and the family.
