May 08, 2024 Media Releases

TLC Healthcare officially opened Homestead Estate’s Botanical Garden at our Wallington healthcare precinct on Tuesday, 23 April 2024.

This substantial investment in resident amenity was initiated by a former TLC resident and driven by TLC CEO Mr Lou Pascuzzi. It honours TLC’s founders, Dr Richard John Leaper OAM and Mrs Jenny Duggan Leaper OAM, for their outstanding dedication, distinguished service and commitment to the Australian aged care sector.

TLC’s Wellbeing team personally delivered printed invites to the residents. This created buzz and excitement amongst residents as they began organising outfits and sharing the garden party plans with their friends and families in the event lead-up.

Residents and guests enjoyed a selection of delicious ribbon sandwiches and tasty fish and chips, refreshing cold drinks and an ice-cold gelato in their favourite flavours.

Entertainment was provided by a group of exceptionally talented Kardinia International College students who performed as a String quartet in the central garden area, along with a solo pianist on the grand piano in the TLC Piano Bar.

CEO Lou Pascuzzi, along with long-term resident Barbara Dodds, proudly shared the ribbon cutting and unveiled the commemorative plaque to officially announce the new space as open. Mr Pascuzzi said, “I want to thank the residents, who really drove this initiative and landscape architects Brocor, who brought their vision to life.

Mr Pascuzzi’s speech was welcomed with cheers and applause, followed by the cutting and sharing of the beautiful garden-inspired cake, ready for guests to enjoy as a final sweet treat.

The Botanical Garden now offers a peaceful and relaxing space in nature for residents, their families and friends to pause, reflect, and enjoy for years to come.
