News and information about what’s happening in our homes and across the Estia family.

Read about the week at Twin Waters!


We’d like to start by welcoming our new Twin Waters team to Estia! 


With the home officially open to our new residents and Estia team this month, we are thrilled to have such a skilful and passionate team to join our Estia family! 

A week of events at Twin Waters!


Referrer’s event – 23 August

Earlier in the week, the new Twin Waters team hosted a cocktail event, with referrers invited to the home for an exclusive tour. It gave our chefs the chance to show just how creative and talented they are in the kitchen!


A decadent display of canapes, thanks to Twin Water’s new Head Chef (originally from our Mount Coolum home), included Cream of Pumpkin Soup with Ciabatta finger served in a short black cup, Smoked Salmon and Green Pea Vol au Vent, Chorizo and Prawn Skewer with Aioli and Berry Cheesecake in a shot glass!

“Our referrer clientele was blown away by the food provided and the service our wonderful team on the floor,” shared Group Head of Hospitality, James Wix.

A big well done, Glenn Bauer and team! 


Last Saturday, we also hosted our Twin Water’s Open day, and were thrilled by the huge community spirit and turn out! Almost 400 people attended the day, and took a chance to tour the home – and since, 267 residents and families have already offered their expressions of interest for a room at our new home!



Guests for the day got to enjoy a free sausage sizzle hosted by radio station 92.7 Mix FM, who also shared a live radio feed of the Estia event throughout the day!  There was live musical entertainment, decadent sweet and savoury treats, and face painting and balloon artists for the kids (and kids at heart!). Financial advisors and tours throughout the day were also available.



“The day was filled with colour and laughter, and our café was packed with hundreds!” shared Head of Client Relations, Tammy Ridgway, “Local families and our neighbour at Living Choice kept sharing how impressed they were by the day, and our warm and informative team!”



Great thanks go out to our new Twin Waters management, Executive Director Adriana Turica, and our Care Director Ozlem Ertan, and their new team. And a big well done to Head Chef, Glenn Bauer, and Lifestyle Coordinator Megan McKenzie who used their skills to make the day a particularly special one!

A sign of just how special the Estia family is, a special mention also goes out to the extended Estia team – including Group Head of Hospitality James Wix, and the Client Relations team, Tammy Ridgway, Peter Hailey, Wendy Oliver and Robyn Ackland, as well as Barbara Leadbetter (from Nambour) and Sue Clifton (from Mount Coolum)– great people and teams who all spent the week at the home to ensure the smooth running of the various events and welcoming of new staff!
