A Message From The Chairman
Welcome to the Society of Saint Hilarion and I hope you will find our website to be interesting and informative. It is a great privilege to be involved with an organisation with such a strong heritage and with a clear purpose of serving the elderly in our community.
I encourage you to explore the various sections on this site and invite you to contact one of our friendly staff with any questions that you have. Aged care can be quite a complex issue, however we are here to provide you with as much information and assistance as possible if you are looking to make a decision in relation to a member of your family.

Social Networking physio Frank Naso honoured for getting people together
Frank Naso - Director of Wellness and Enablement is one of five finalists in the Individual Distinction category of the 2015 Hesta Aged Care Awards. The Awards recognize those who make an exceptional contribution to improving the quality of life of older Australians.
"In the past 12 months, we have created a multi-focused lifestyle and wellness program which allows residents to regain their mobility and sense of community" Mr Naso said.
"We set up a gym to cater for the exercise goals of each resident and now more than 30 residents are active members of the gym, which has become a centre for daily socialising.
"Ten residents who were previously confined to their beds or chairs have regained mobility, while a stroke sufferer has regained movement in his arm giving him the confidence to join in other social activities."
Access to the gym and the fitness program has been extended to staff and volunteers who share the same facilities, further helping to unify the community and make residents feel less isolated.
The winners will be revealed at the Hesta Aged Care Awards dinner on Thursday 27th August in Can
The 60th Anniversary St Hilarion Feast DaySunday 25th October 2015Mater Christi Church
413 Grange Rd, Seaton
Sunday the 25th October is when we celebrate the feast day with a street procession around the surrounding streets of the Parish with the statue of St Hilarion and then an open air mass. The festivities carry on throughout the day with various entertainment and activities for all ages.
This is quite an extraordinary event celebrating 60 years. This year we will be actually celebrating it in grand manner for the 60th anniversary. It has certainly been a huge accomplishment by all people involved in the feast activities from the first feast in 1955 to today. I am sure that the original founders of the Society of St Hilarion would never have believed that what they commenced in 1955 as an adoration to their patron Saint of their home town would have evolved into what it is today. With 5 generations of fellow Calabrese and proud Adelaideians celebrating this feast day in great honour. So please come and join us in a day of great friendship and traditional activities.
Remember all funds raised over the 60 years of feasts are what funded the ability for The Society of St Hilarion to so proudly enter aged care and to be able to provide the excellent facilities and services that are enjoyed by our residents and families today.
Buona Festa , Evviva Sant'Ilarione.
Jassmine Wood, President of the Society of Saint Hilarion.
