Monday, 20 June marked the official launch of our Mount Gambier office.
Enhanced Lifestyles Interim Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Ellis, said, “Our vision is that the office will become a hub where people can feel free to drop in, whether that’s a customer wanting to play some games or have a coffee, or an out-of-town service provider coming in to use our meeting spaces.
“We understand the range of needs within the Limestone Coast community and are investing here to provide support and services by local people for local people living with a disability.”
We’re excited about the opportunities the new office will create for customers, allowing us to further support their needs and enhance their life. Establishing a space where customers and their support network can visit and feel comfortable was a key focus for the new premises.
A feature of the office is the ‘hang-out’ area; this includes a range of games and sensory items for customers, particularly people developing their sensory skills. Our Limestone Coast team will also benefit from the additional resources that the new office now has, which will enable them to deliver the best service to customers.
The new office is only a five-minute walk from the central shopping district in Mount Gambier. We’re right next door to the Local Area Coordinator, Mission Australia. There is an on-site car park which includes several accessible parking bays.
The office launch provided a valuable opportunity for everyone involved within our member-led association in the region to come together and connect with one another.
Our General Manager, Operations, Kathryn Broadbent, said, “The day was all about forming stronger relationships with customers, team members, other service providers and the wider Limestone Coast community.”
Enhanced Lifestyles is committed to supporting the community and developing relationships with local businesses throughout the Limestone Coast. We were proud to choose Presto Eatery and Brew Coffee Bar to provide refreshments for guests. The crew at Presto Eatery catered a range of fresh sandwiches and wraps, as well as a collection of amazing cakes. The Brew Coffee Bar team kept everyone warm with their delicious coffee and hot chocolate.
