The PADCA Family
As part of the PADCA family, Kurume has the leadership and support of the umbrella organisation and residents have preferential access to the continuum of PADCA services.
"Very many thanks to all who have helped us at Kurume after the double whammy of hail damage and electricity outage. All the different parts - swift replacement of the tiles, the chaps working over the week-end, getting the cleaning people, the generator, food from Sunnyside, the offer of alternative temporary accommodation - all this and more was greatly appreciated. It was a caring response."
"The staff have been absolutely wonderful! They have helped us here at Kurume with whatever we needed doing working timelessly! From morning throughout the day. Even working on Saturday and Sunday. The Maintenance Department has gone the extra mile, arriving early every morning. Encouraging us and seeing that everything goes smoothly. Management have been a great help making sure that we had meals as well as a place to stay during this terrible time [The devastating hail storm of late 2020]"
