RSL LifeCare Commemorates ANZAC Day with residents

Thursday, 25 April, is the day Village Managers can truly connect with their residents as the country marks ANZAC Day.

RSL LifeCare ANZAC Village, in Narrabeen, 23km north of Sydney’s CBD, which is the Not For Profit’s largest retirement living and aged care facility in NSW, held its Veteran March and Commemorative Anzac Service on Wednesday.

Air Commodore Nick Osborne (pictured below) presented the Anzac address with the laying of wreaths laid by Pipe Major Allan Watts. Residents were in attendance.

NSW RSL is holding more than 600 commemorative events in communities across New South Wales. Getting involved in ANZAC Day is an opportunity for all Australians to come together, honor the sacrifice of our service men and women, and show support for our current and past members of the armed forces. 

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs has created three commemorative posters that anybody can print.

“Display our Anzac Day poster to commemorate all those who have served during wars, conflicts and peace operations,” said the department.

“We also acknowledge First Nations veterans and Australian service in East Timor (now Timor-Leste).”

Holding ANZAC Day events for residents in advance of 25 April is a great way Village Professionals can observe this important day on our calendar with residents in a way that still allows residents to attend events on the actional day, at locations they have likely been attending with mates for decades.
