Elements Welcomes New Resident Grace

Grace - Elements ResidentResidents and staff of Elements extend a warm welcome to new resident Grace.

We took a few moments to ask Grace to share a little about her life journey and how she has settled in to Elements.

I was born in the early forties in to a family of eight, living in a quiet Victorian regional town. In October 1967 I made the decision to pack up and move to Brisbane.

When I arrived, I began studying Nursing but after two years I decided to change my career path and entered the Legal field.

I worked for a well respected law firm, W.A Simpson, for some 24 years. In the mid eighties I was in a serious car accident where I spent one month in a hospital ward and four months in rehab.

I had to the make choice between – will I give up or will I continue to fight and not let my disability control my life?

When I eventually recovered, I went back to work for the same law firm from 1986 to 1999.

Over the last few years I researched retirement living and visited Elements at Springwood three times before making my decision to move here. I liked Elements because of the mix of ages of the residents living here and the close community feel at the village.

Since moving to Elements I feel so relaxed and really enjoy the luxury of having my home wheelchair and walker friendly with no stairs.

Welcome Grace, lovely to have you here and thank you for sharing.
