The Beenleigh Senior Citizens Centre on Alamein Street has been a hive of activity over the past few months, and everything is for the better.

The centre saw a new CEO, Megan Zwart, take over last year followed by a new management committee, all with many years of experience with the Logan community.

While there have been some team member changes, there is a large number who are still there and enjoy working with seniors from all walks of life every day. There have also been close to 20 new staff members hired to make services better for all.

The centre also has many volunteers who are the backbone of any organisation and come in day after day for the love of giving.

Some rumours have been circulating that the centre was closing, and services and staff were being dropped.

A spokesperson for the centre said the management want to reassure all their current and future clients that Beenleigh Senior Citizens Centre is here is to stay and grow.

“We are currently working on new activities for our clients and families to be involved in and we have recently grown our staffing levels, with many of them commencing this month. 

“When engaging with us, you will continue to see familiar faces of our long serving staff members, as well as some new faces to assist with the ongoing growth within the centre.”

With lots of work happening in the background, the centre has enlisted the help of Louie Naumovski for the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Many may know Mr Naumovski’s work in the community with Logan House Fire Support Network and his huge efforts with the flood clean up in the city. He is now sharing his time to generate a better workflow at the centre.

Some of the senior centres improvements include their Home/Garden Maintenance program which goes to clients homes and mows and tidies the yards of those who can no longer manage it themselves.

The transport service has increased with more drivers on the road and their respite program is offered both in home and onsite, giving great peace of mind for those needed this service.

The activities haven’t changed, and more are being added and the Meals on Wheels program is cooking up a storm daily.

The building itself if getting a facelift with new paint, signs, gardens and more all coming over the next few months.
