Partnerships Flourishing at Twilight

Hunters Hill Congregational Church Agreement

In July this year a partnership was formalised between Twilight Aged Care and the Hunters Hill Congregational Church which shares the Hunters Hill Village premises.

Our two organisations share similar missions to provide quality services and amenities to the communities we serve, which includes supporting the disadvantaged, frail and aged. As such, a formal ‘Heads of Agreement’ has been negotiated under which the Hunters Hill Congregational Church’s Property Trust will support a long term management lease by Twilight Aged Care (TAC) of Hunters Hill Village including 12 Retirement Living Units, the former manse (to be used as administration) and the 35-bed residential aged care facility.
