It was great to see families and friends from Camellia down in our Mary Mackillop facility come together for family day recently.
This day is an annual event organised by staff in the facility- we were in luck with the weather this year! This year’s event featured clowns dressed up to entertain the residents, and Jye, one of our music therapy students brought along some musical instruments for a sing along. It was wonderful to see residents and families participate in this very special activity.
What a day it was! We had 26 family members dancing in a congo line through the Carrington grounds, catching bubbles around the courtyard, and enjoying a picnic lunch with their loved ones in our beautiful gardens.
It was great seeing the family and residents try and guess who it was beneath the clown costumes- a big thank you to Bob from our Village who gave his time to be there on the day, as well as Julie Barry, our facility manager, and nursing staff Therese and Anna.
