Update on Townsville Residential Facility – July 2018

Introducing Protea by PresCare

PresCare’s new residential facility in Townsville has officially been named Protea by PresCare.

Why Protea by PresCare?
The name Protea by PresCare was inspired by the protea flower which dates back 300 million years, and as legends go, the protea flower was named after the Greek Sea God Proteus. The adjective protean holds positive connotations of flexibility, versatility and adaptability.

So how does this relate to PresCare? PresCare’s core values combined with the meaning of the protea flower symbolises how we give hope, provide change and transform lives showing diversity through the people we help by giving them courage to keep moving forward.
