Seniors Week

26.02.2019 Admin News No Comments

As Part of Seniors Week, Paling Court’s Leisure and Lifestyle team have networked and liaised with other community organisations. They all came together at the Mount Annan Botanical Gardens recently, for a sensory walk with the residents. 

 The Aboriginal Elders that were present took the residents and staff on a Bush Tucker Walk, where residents had the opportunity to taste and smell some of the different bush foods present in the Gardens. The residents were also educated by park rangers on the different kinds of flora and fauna present in the Gardens. The residents were then treated to a BBQ lunch that was prepared by a local Men’s Group.

The residents are very much looking forward to future gatherings and taking part in other local community events.

New Uniforms!

19.02.2019 Admin News No Comments

Over the past year, we’ve been trialing and rolling out new uniforms for the care staff in all four Residential Aged Care facilities. The new uniforms are designed to be more breathable, easier to move around in, and cooler in the summer when we hit those extreme temperatures!

It was like the first day of school all over again down at Mary Mackillop recently, when a number of staff received their brand new uniforms for the first time.

The staff were very proud to show off their new uniforms to the residents and to each other!

Valentines Day at Werombi Court

18.02.2019 Admin News No Comments

Werombi Court residents were feeling the love this Valentines day! Parry, Rothbury and Rose residents have recently enjoyed each other’s company whilst making cards for fellow residents and students. These decorated the tables throughout the facility, along with heart chocolates.

Our new volunteer photographer Colin kindly came in and offered his time and services to take photos of the residents. Some enjoyed posing it up for the cameras solo or with loved ones and staff. The photo sessions were thoroughly enjoyed by all, bringing laughter and a sense of excitement to the facility. We are looking forward to having Colin return for other events!

The residents have also enjoyed sharing old photos with friends, and making collages to brighten up the walls in their rooms. It was a wonderful time recently for social fun, reminiscence, and the building of friendships between the residents. Below are some of the lovely photographs that were taken throughout the day!
