Take a moment with Newton and Helen

Sonia Lim 5 Oct 2021

101-year-old Newton is a resident of our RFBI Bellingen Masonic Village and a keen gardener. His daughter, Helen, wanted to find the perfect home that provided 24/7 care but also allowed her dad to enjoy his love of plants. They found the perfect room in our Bellingen community.

Newton often shares stories of his involvement in the war as a Lieutenant – our team love to learn and experience history firsthand through Newton.

“Dad living in the village has been beneficial for both of us,” Helen shared.

He can live independently, and I can live independently knowing that he is totally cared for in every way possible. The staff are terrific and they are part of the same community, which adds an extra level of care I think as they are looking after people from their own community.

“We recommend RFBI Bellingen Masonic Village all of the time.”

Thank you for taking A Moment With… Newton and Helen.
