Eventide Homes has received an extraordinary donation totalling $1,000,000 from the Mangle family of Halls Gap. “Eventide Homes does a wonderful thing caring for aged people in our community, and as a family, we couldn’t think of a more worthy recipient of our donation” said Mangle family spokesperson, Pip Mangle. “The tour of the buildings, and hearing about the history of Eventide Homes and its plans for a new dementia wing, convinced us that the money is going to be used for a great cause.” Chair of Eventide Homes, Peter Greenberger, said the generosity of the Mangle family will benefit aged people in the region for many years to come. “We have plans for a beautiful new 12-bed dementia wing that will stand for many years. It is going to be a benchmark for building designs for people living with dementia. It will have sensory gardens, spaces for visitors, a covered outdoor gym suitable for aged people, and fixtures and fittings that will be mentally stimulating and inviting.”
