The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-01-15T02:03:57Z Seasons Aged Care communities collect 45.5 tonnes of food for Foodbank 2018-01-15T02:03:57Z seasons-aged-care-communities-collect-45-5-tonnes-of-food-for-foodbank Seasons Aged Care’s annual Foodbank fundraising and food drive has collected more than 45.5 tonnes of food for Foodbank. Since September 2017, all Seasons Aged Care communities have been holding fundraising events and a food drive where residents, staff and the general public donate a different pantry staple each week. Seasons Aged Care Chief Executive Officer Nick Loudon said that while the total is just shy of the organisation’s 50-tonne target, it represents a great effort by each of the communities. “When I set our 50-tonne target, I knew it was ambitious but I’m proud to say that thanks to the great work by each of our communities and their local areas, that we collected more than 45.5 tonnes of food,” said Mr Loudon. “Whether it was through donating at our community fundraising events such as family days and high teas, or bringing in a grocery item of the week, I thank all our staff, residents and the local community for their involvement and shared passion for the Foodbank cause.” Every item that was donated will allow Foodbank to help meet the growing demand for food relief in Australia. Last year 3.6 million Australians experienced food insecurity and 652,000 people receive food relief from Foodbank agencies every month – 27 per cent of those are children. This year, Seasons will be continuing its partnership with Foodbank and Mr Loudon is confident that the organisation will be able to surpass this year’s goal and help even more Australian families in need. “We’re looking to keep the effort going all through this year so we can collect even more food for those in need.” <ENDS> High-res images: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jbsq5wb1l6qp42h/AADE8ypFJfJ2_7TPIU54k3T4a?dl=0     Seasons Aged Care builds in-house content team to answer aged care questions 2017-11-28T05:01:18Z seasons-aged-care-builds-in-house-content-team-to-answer-aged-care-questions Queensland aged care provider Seasons Aged Care has launched its new website, which includes a new content hub designed to arm consumers with unbiased and expert aged care information. Seasons Aged Care Chief Executive Officer, Nick Loudon, says the struggles of aged care consumers was at the heart of the decision to take a content-driven approach when developing the new website. “The aged care industry can often be difficult to navigate, with confusion around what options are available at what cost. Family members are faced with a wide range of industry jargon, acronyms and confusing financial models,” says Mr Loudon. “Sometimes they end up with more questions than answers when they begin their aged care search. With input and advice from a growing number of industry experts, our blog The Purple Room aims to be a one-stop hub that answers these questions with impartial information to help them make an informed choice,” says Mr Loudon. Alongside aged care industry information and money matters, the Purple Room also covers seniors health and wellbeing topics alongside resident stories, including traditional recipes and old-style tips. “We’ve thrown a spotlight on our communities and residents through the new website and look forward to sharing more of their stories, tips and favourite recipes.” Seasons worked with content agency The Content Division to devise their content strategy and have hired an in-house content team to write and edit blogs, shoot video and grow the social media strategy. They’ve also partnered with leading digital agency iProspect to help amplify their messages through Search Engine and Facebook marketing. “It’s early days, but already we’re seeing the benefits of focusing on quality content that can be shared and repurposed across a variety of channels.” Take a look at seasonsagedcare.com.au For more information, contact Belinda Peters on 0431 857 527 or bpeters@seasonsagedcare.com.au.
