The lifestyle staff provide a comprehensive lifestyle program targeted at individual preferences and interests. Group and individual activities are conducted weekly assisted by other lifestyle staff and volunteers.
Songs played, stories told around “The Remarkable Bar” on Friday afternoons. Residents and visitors enjoy an “End of Week” wind down with a glass of beer or wine, crackers and cheese at “Beer O’clock”.
The Residents enjoy armchair run on one evening a week, as well as mental quizzes and crossword puzzles.
A cooking group meet weekly to create many lovely and tasty delights, as well as provide for the weekly menu. Some of the cooking delights include sausage rolls, pasty slices, cakes, biscuits, and other delights for afternoon teas.
Church services are also run every Friday at 11:00am. Each week of the month is a different denomination, including Anglican, Lutheran, Uniting and Catholic. There is also a Spiritual Room available for the residents use.
Residents have their feet massaged and their nails done, and participate in an exercise program twice a week.
Another weekly activity is Men’s Morning at the community Men’s Shed located on the grounds of Mt View Homes. The male residents are able to enjoy the company of other males in the community. They can play cards, 8 Ball, or just sit back with a cuppa. Some things they have made are an AFL ladder, welcome signs for the front door, and other little things, like coat hooks and mail holders.
Enjoying an active social life
Once a month a social afternoon is held with entertainment and a delicious afternoon tea for our residents. Community members are invited to join the afternoon’s events. Monthly bus outings take our residents out into the community to see the sights, to enjoy good food and to make new friends.
