Beaumont Care Redcliffe residents enjoyed a fun filled day today. The day started off out in courtyard of the facility where we enjoyed the sunshine. There were sno-cones to enjoy, activities such as Knock-em-downs-Pick a box for a nice prize. Hookey game – Pinata – apple bobbing which staff and residents were involved in. Sample bags were distributed and beautiful ladies danced around in their colourful costumes to entertain both the residents and the staff. Lunch was Ekka themed food – Dagwood dogs, Pies and Strawberry Ice-creams. The day was completed by a Raffle draw and a concert by the Jam Drops to relax us all before the day was done and we got to put up their feet for the day. Ekka Bags were given out to the residents which were well received.
Those residents who were unable to join in the day’s activities were included and were visited in their rooms by the Lifestyle and Leisure staff, Management and other staff. A special Person of the day was a Balloon Clown who surprised the Residents by making them a Special Balloon of Animal shapes and flower shapes. It delighted them all. All residents were made to feel welcomed to enjoy the day of fun together. The Animal Farm visited and the residents had the chance to have contact and a pat. This day was a great experience for them all and it brought back good memories.
Here is a nice image gallery from the event. Enjoy!
