Welcome to Peter Aspin, the new manager of the Carinity Brownesholme retirement village.

Prior to coming to Carinity Brownesholme, Peter was living and working as a chaplain in Alice Spring, a role which entailed “varied activities across the local network and community”.

Peter is also a former auctioneer and minister who pastored at churches in Auckland, Noosa, Emerald and Toowoomba.

“Church leadership is fulfilling but life as an auctioneer was fast paced. Every role presents different challenges,” Peter says.

Managing Carinity Brownesholme is “both commercial and pastoral” for Peter, and his favourite aspect of his new role is interacting with around 80 retirees who live there.

“Our residents are amazing. We have 61 independent living units, and every resident has wonderful stories to tell,” Peter says.

“Their stories and the graciousness that comes through a settled and rich life are a constant source of inspiration.”

The retirement village is co-located with a new Carinity aged care community, set on a former dairy farm, which is scheduled to open mid-year.

“My hope is that Carinity Brownesholme will continue to grow and enrich the lives of all residents, present and future.  To be a small part of the story is a reward in itself,” Peter says.
