Welcome to the Blue Mountains Retirement Village website, I am Trish Samios and I have been the Manager of the Blue Mountains Retirement Village since 2005. With the assistance from our Assistant Manager, Kylie Wade-Ferrell, a team of dedicated staff, and the support of our Board of Directors who volunteer their time, I thoroughly enjoy my role at this welcoming, not-for-profit retirement village in the heart of the beautiful Blue Mountains.
Members of our local community originally formed the Blue Mountains Retirement Village and today we still think of ourselves as a small, tight knit neighbourhood. We take great pride in knowing each and every one of our residents and they all know one another. We are proud to say our own company has operated since December 1968.
We have a highly dedicated and experienced Management Board, with many volunteer Directors giving their time on the Board for over 20 years.
There is always someone to help when anyone needs a helping hand and we are here to ensure that you feel welcome, safe and secure at all times. The Village is staffed Monday to Friday for seven hours a day, and I am on call 24 hours a day Monday to Friday, with Board members taking any emergency calls at weekends.
Myself and my dedicated team of administrative and grounds staff ensure that everything runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis. The attitude that we encourage in our staff is a ‘person Friday’ outlook, where together everyone gets involved to make the Village wheels turn smoothly.
There is a Fund Raising Group that organises social activities and we hold regular social events, including monthly ‘Happy Hour’, so that those who wish to, can take part in an active social life.
Thinking of joining us? We recognise that the decision to move into a retirement community is one of the most significant of your life and we’re here to answer any questions and show you our beautiful Village.
We hope that once you’ve sampled the Blue Mountains Retirement Village’s warm and friendly-family atmosphere, the decision to become a member of our community will be easy.
