Barrie and Dorothy Brierley, Dongara

The development was designed for residents aged 55 years and older. Two residents who have been celebrating since their arrival is Barrie and Dorothy Brierley, a retired couple who had been living in an old asbestos-walled unit in Dongara for several years.

Barrie and Dorothy had been waiting for a transfer to an updated home as their health issues were being compounded by the living conditions.

Their new CHL unit has been a revelation, and the nicest home they have lived in for “several decades”.

According to them, “the new apartments support a real sense of community. The neighbours can be relied upon to give a hand.

Further, pets being allowed in the complex has given the feel of a relaxed lifestyle, supported by a not-for-profit landlord that is responsive to resident requests in regard to any building or maintenance issues”.

The couple have two dogs which they take on walks to the beaches and shops which are only a short distance away. As a consequence, their general health has improved.
