Umbrella Community Care

What a fantastic event! Today, in partnership with the Laguna Veneto Bocce Club, Umbrella team has held a “My Aged Care” information session as part of the Aged Care System Navigators Trial to club members and visitors. The event was very well attended and lots of good conversation happened about the system. We also introduced The Laguna Club’s very own Community Champion who has been trained to provide independent information about the Aged Care system to their club members in English and in Italian 👍👍 🇮🇹 🇦🇺 ...

Umbrella Community Care

Umbrella is like a family. We all came from different walks of life, from different countries, speak over 40 different languages, yet when it comes to our team we are a family. We have the same passion in our hearts, to make this world a better place for our clients and communities. Finding such a like minded group of people feels like a blessing. We have a strong team, that can unite and support each other, and this is where Umbrella’s strength and uniqueness comes from.

Unfortunately, sometimes we also have to say good bye to each other, and that can be hard. Greg, our colleague and fantastic Zumba dance instructor had to go back to Poland due to personal reasons. Greg is an amazing guy, who always smiles, makes our clients and staff dance in a crazy way, always there to help, or to give a hug. Thank you, Greg, for the last 4 years, for all the Zumba classes, Pride Parades, Golden Bus Tours, Cracovia Parties, Weekend outings and many more things, it was an amazing journey with you.

We wish you all the best in Poland.

Your Umbrella family will be always here in Perth.

This isn't goodbye, it's see you later.
