St Basils Aged Care Services is pleased to announce the opening of their Day Centre.
The new Day Centre opened and welcomed its first clients on Tuesday 18th July 2017.
St Basils was successful in their application of securing Government funding under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme for Centre Based Care and In-Home Respite.
Both programmes offer relief to family members and caregivers, allowing them to work, handle personal business or just relax, knowing their loved ones are being cared for and safe.

The Day Centre aims to be a friendly and welcoming place, where you can socialise, make friends and really enjoy your days with great activities, music, movies, crafts and outings.
The In Home Respite offers the opportunity for the carer to spend the allocated time relaxing or attending to personal business while the support worker can attend to looking after their loved ones.
St Basils philosophy is based on the values of family, relationship, community & culture, specialising in caring for people from different cultures. All cultures are welcomed.

Accessing the services is as simple as calling Esmeralda – Manager Community Services on 9201 9655

The St Basils Day Centre is located on the grounds of The Annunciation Of Our Lady Church, on the corner of Charles St and Carr St West Perth.

A Data Sample from 2016 ABS Census

The recent publication of 2016 census data by the ABS has produced some interesting statistics. Here’s some figures that members may find worth pondering.

Year Males Females Total
2016 1,136 1,173 2,309
2011 1,321 1,331 2,652
2006 1,502 1,523 3,025

At the 2016 Census 15,107 persons identified as having “Greek” ancestry and 23,711 gave Eastern Orthodoxy (Greek, Russian, Serbian, etc) as their religious affiliation. The number of people in Western Australia who identified as speaking Greek at home to some level was 4,790.

For those interested, the census can provide more detailed information about communities or regions.
http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/D3310114.nsf/home/2016%20Census%20Community%20Profiles
For example: In 2016 there were 3,452 individuals with Greek ancestry in the local government area of Stirling. Greece born persons living in the City of Stirling at the time numbered 867. (Over a quarter of the state’s Greece born population is found in this locality.)

Speak Sparingly and Glorify God

The real celebration of life is to glorify God. If the heart has no inclination for this, then this is the epitome of ungratefulness.

There are those with few possessions who find reason to glorify God. They do so with great joy.

There are those who have everything provided in abundance yet the sense of sufficiency always escapes them.

All that we have is on loan to us by God. If we share what is already His, our reward in Heaven will be great.

A life centred on God finds true purpose. A self-centred life surrenders itself to failure and defeat. Self-centredness and hard heartedness makes us strangers of Christ, robbing us of the victory won for us on the Holy and Precious Life giving Cross.

It is good to keep a clean and tidy house, a clean and tidy office and a beautiful garden. It is good to strive for excellence in all these things. But every person’s first endeavour must be to keep a clean and tidy mind filled with good thoughts, a clean and tidy body fit as the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit, and a clean and tidy heart, one that is worthy of communion with God.

Excellence cannot be achieved without striving. Excellence cannot be realised if we do not learn to serve others. And all this is in vain if we do not have the love of Christ in us.
For Christ said “Whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.” (Mark 10:43) This means that we must place ourselves last and consider ourselves the least – to become the servant of all. For Christ said “Whoever of you desires to be first shall be the slave of all.” (Mark 10:44)

There are those who believe that excellence can be achieved by concentrating on material refinement, the acquisition of wealth, the attainment of knowledge, the application of their intellect for some improvement in their field of endeavour. It is impossible to achieve lasting excellence in anything if it we do not learn to love and serve God and to love and serve His people.
