IRT Berala on the Park resident

“The help I get from IRT every day enables me to stay in my home. They make it a lot easier and they are wonderful, kind people. I love the social contact – they take me out to the club, along the lake, for lunch. And we talk about everything.”

Sheilah Barrie

IRT home care customer

“Getting down to the water three times a week is absolutely magic to me. IRT has really facilitated that. They’re very good. They keep a real eye on me and they’re very careful. So I have the confidence to go down there. It’s fabulous, absolutely fabulous.”

Jeannie Green

IRT home care customer

“There’s a very good community spirit here; people pull together. We have happy hour with the other residents in our block once a month and have made lots of friends. They’re a lovely bunch.”

Sid Wiscombe

IRT Kangara Waters resident

“We got the travel bug many years ago – we love seeing new places, experiencing different cultures. When we moved here we found it was so easy to travel. We lock the door and we don’t have to worry about a thing.”
