    Respite units: As mentioned in our weekly updates, we would like to inform residents that after a numerous amount of feedback, we have decided to remove the respite units. We understand that there was very little interest in the use of these units. However, we are operating within Flat 18 of Flamingo Court and can offer the shared use of our office, but would also like to remind residents that we are also amongst works.

    As always, if you would like more information, please contact your RLO, Charlie.
