Share the Warmth: Donate to Granny Carers’ Blanket Drive


Brisbane, Australia—For Brisbane seniors who continue to live in the comfort of their own homes or who have moved into nursing facilities and hospitals, even winters bring new challenges and put our elderly at increased risk. Sydney-based Granny NANNIES, a home health care referral service, is hosting a blanket drive. This year’s goal is set at 150 lap blankets, throws and quilts, which will be dispersed to Hospice of the Carer and Brisbane Living Nursing Center to provide seniors with added comfort and warmth.

Granny Carers’ is asking Brisbane’s citizens, organizations, businesses and community groups to help with this worthwhile cause. Both homemade and store-bought blankets are being accepted at Granny Carer’s headquarters. There is a donation box in the lobby that is open during office hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“We want our seniors to know that they have the love and support of our community,” said Granny Carers CEO John Smith. “Thank you to everyone who is donating and helping spread the word about our blanket drive. Caring for those who once cared for us is the highest honour and we take pride in providing services that keep them in good health and spirits.”


Granny Carers was founded in 1990 by Jon and Jane Smith in Brisbane as the result of a very personal, family situation – the need to find quality, trustworthy, reliable and affordable senior home care for Rob’s aging grandmother, Jane Doe, in her own Winter Park home. Since our beginnings in 1990, Granny Carers’ commitment to excellence remains true today. A strong dedication remains to ensure that our clients are consistently treated with the highest level of respect and dignity and are matched with the right private duty caregiver to provide care services in the home, hospital, assisted living facility or nursing home.
