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.
