The power of friendship shines in RFBI

Sonia Lim 7 Feb 2024

In the serene halls of RFBI Glen Innes Masonic Village, amidst the backdrop of rolling hills and tranquil scenery, the true essence of community thrives.

Within our village walls, residents forge meaningful connections that transcend age and circumstance. One such testament to the enduring power of friendship can be found in the heartwarming bond between two residents who exemplify the spirit of camaraderie and resilience.

Despite the challenges that life may present, these two residents have found solace and companionship in each other’s company since their arrival at RFBI Glen Innes. Their friendship blossomed organically, fuelled by shared experiences, laughter, and mutual respect. As they navigate the journey of residential care together, they have become each other’s pillars of strength, offering unwavering support and companionship every step of the way.

Just recently, one of the amazing women hurt her hip, causing her to bed-bound. This obstacle did little to stop the friends from being together – and they are still seen enjoying lunch, conversations and laughter together in the room.

Theirs is not an unusual story in RFBI. We are fortunate to see so many special friendships and bonds created between residents. They are truly inspirational.
