  • The Winter themed activity was well received. We decorated the dining room with handmade snowflakes and some icicles. Clients joined in a game of throwing snow balls at the snowman, reminiscing about winters in their youth, and drinking hot chocolate and marshmallows.
  • The men’s group each Friday is proving a hit. Stephan, our volunteer, is developing a good relationship with the men and we have seen an improvement in co-ordination and concentration.
  • Sensational Senses this month focused on touch. An activity required residents to touch and feel an item and then guess what it was. The item was hidden inside a box. Residents became very involved and there was a lot of laughter and fun.
  • 12 residents participated in a lunch time outing to Morra Park, Shorncliffe.
  • Sausage sizzle for Father’s day. Residents participated in the preparation, cooking and light hearted discussion.
  • The ‘Great Aussie Pie’ celebrated. This was a real winner with our men especially who really enjoyed sharing in some meat pies.
  • International Talk like a Pirate Day. Hats and eye patches were made at craft and worn by residents and staff as we spun some pirate yarns and talked some pirate ‘speak’ There was a good attendance and staff got into the spirit which always makes for more atmosphere and fun.
