Goodwin House Ainslie hosts Ngaire Hobbins


Goodwin House Ainslie hosts Ngaire Hobbins

On 29 August, Goodwin House Ainslie’s world-class chef, Sandeep Vaid, will host Ngaire Hobbins for a morning tea as an extension of Goodwin’s gold sponsorship of Alzheimer’s Australia’s (ACT) Business Breakfast held earlier that morning. Goodwin is aligned with Ngaire’s food philosophy which is all about providing high-quality food as people age. Ngaire Hobbins is a dietician and food specialist and has written books Eat to Cheat Ageing and Eat to Cheat Dementia.

Goodwin is confident Ngaire will be impressed with Sandeep’s experience as he studied for three years at the Swiss School of Hotel Management and was named New Zealand Chef of the Year for the Hilton Group in 2003. In that same year, the International Culinary Federation awarded Sandeep a bronze medal from 250 chefs across Asia Pacific countries.

Sandeep has worked at the one Michelin star restaurant, Claridges, training under Gordon Ramsay. In Australia he worked under, Todd Farr, the 2005 My Restaurant Rules winner. In the ACT Sandeep has cooked for the King and Queen of Spain, the Sultan of Brunei and other world leaders.

Goodwin is proud to support the Alzheimer’s Australia (ACT) Business Breakfast, and host our own special event on the day. As a respected Aged Care provider, Goodwin supports ongoing dementia research and improvements in dementia care. The Business Breakfast is one of the largest local fundraisers for dementia care and awareness, bringing together local business people, politicians, health practitioners and people and their families living with dementia.

Dementia is the second leading cause of death of Australians. Dementia is the single greatest cause of disability in older Australians (aged 65 years or older). More than 50% of residents in Australian Government-subsidised aged care facilities have dementia. Goodwin will increasingly have a role to play in providing care for dementia residents as projections suggest that by 2056 over 250,000 paid carers will be needed in residential aged care in Australia.

Goodwin is hoping that money raised for dementia research will provide a medical breakthrough for the prevention or at least delay of onset of dementia. Currently, there are more than 400,000 Australians living with dementia and by 2056 without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to reach over a million people.

The morning tea at Goodwin Village Ainslie is open to Goodwin residents, families and friends.
