384 years of togetherness


LOVE is in the air at Baptcare’s Peninsula View Community in Moorooduc Highway, Frankston South.

Nine couples living in the aged care community have been married a total of 384 years.

Peninsula View has provision for couples to stay together, and encourages them to support one another during the sometimes-difficult transition into residential aged care, communications officer Claire Macuz said.

Jack and Dot Cayless have been married for 71 years – slightly longer than Gwen and Doug Hildebrand who have been together for 70 years.

The recent romance of Margaret Grey and Francis Thompson proves that love has no bounds, with the couple enjoying their first year together after a Commitment Ceremony early last year.

Other couples at the community having been together for between 10 and 66 years, proving Peninsula View is a great place for elderly couples, Ms Macuz said.
