Minister welcomes new dawn for Twilight Aged Care’s Horton House

Ken Wyatt, the minister of aged care, observed face painting, live music, a barbecue lunch and tai chi at the opening of Horton House, a newly upgraded Twilight residential aged care facility in Gordon, in northern Sydney, on Saturday 25 March 2017.

The facility was officially opened by Wyatt, along with Twilight CEO Lesley Jordan, TV and radio personality and event emcee Tim Webster and Gordon mayor Jennifer Anderson.

“The Open Day was a resounding success and we received glowing praise for the high level of quality of the Horton House redevelopment,” enthused Jordan. “Special thanks should go to the large number of Twilight Aged Care staff who gave up their Saturday to volunteer on the day.”

The upgrade cost $16 million and included improvements to safety, security and energy efficiency.
