The Maja Hrudka Nursing Scholarship

Nursing is a special profession, and unless you have some dedication you should not enter it.

Maja Hrudka (1925 - 2014) was the founder and Chairperson of Kalyna Care.

The Board of Directors have created a perpetual nursing scholarship as a testament to Maja’s personal achievements.

Life Membership

The following individuals & organisations have been granted the honour of Life Membership, in recognition of their outstanding service and significant contributions to the Ukrainian Elderly People’s Home trading as Kalyna Care.

Life Membership is the highest honour that we can bestow and Life Members are held in the highest esteem.

The Tree of Hope

You’ll see a small silver tree with silver stars as you walk through our foyer. This is our Tree of Hope – and we’d love it if you took a closer look. Each star features a wish or hope from one of our residents, who’d like a volunteer to give them a helping hand.

It could be a trip to the footy or someone to share a cup of tea with on a Sunday afternoon, a walk by the beach or home-cooked meal.

If you can help make one of these wishes come true, get in touch with Michelle (Leisure & Lifestyle Coordinator) or Linda (Person-Centred Care Coordinator) on 9367 8055.
