SITUATED in a peaceful setting, award-winning Harmony Village offers residential independent living and respite aged care close to the heart of town.

Regardless of whichever stage of life you are entering, Shepparton’s Harmony Village will provide the comfort, lifestyle and care you will need.

Harmony Village offers exceptional care and support in a community environment where individual needs and interests are catered for and where people feel part of a wider community and can enjoy time with friends, sharing a meal, or joining activities and outings. Situated close to the Shepparton Marketplace and East Shepparton Bowling Club, with access to public transport and in a native garden setting, Harmony Village offers quality, independent living and residential respite care.

Originally opened in November 1997 as a 31-bed hostel, Harmony Village has undergone much change over the years. Recently celebrating its 21st birthday, the award-winning complex has now expanded to an impressive 79-bed space.

To commemorate the 21st birthday, Harmony Village hosted a celebration for its residents, staff and volunteers. On the special day, a cake cut by Melek Seit, a resident who had been living at the residency since its inception.

One of the residents, James Waldron, entertained guests with a performance of live music. There was dancing and residents thoroughly enjoyed singing along to well-known nostalgic hits.

Doutta Galla Aged Services CEO, Vanda Iaconese said, “It was wonderful to get together to celebrate our 21st birthday. It was a joy to see so many residents enjoying themselves, singing, dancing and sharing afternoon tea.”

Harmony Village will be having their official opening of a new wing on December 11 and everyone is invited to come down and have a look. Read more about Harmony Village in next week’s feature in The Adviser or call 5831 7921.
