Lifestyle and Leisure

Lifestyle and Leisure Program – Active Care Focus ………. “Move it or lose it”

Our aged care homes offer a lifestyle and leisure program that enhances the quality of life for each resident. The evidence base is clear that activity-based experiences and social engagement promote health and wellbeing. We encourage each resident to engage and have fun and enjoy each day.

Our lifestyle and leisure programs are developed in consultation with residents and are tailored to their interests and abilities to foster participation and an active lifestyle as much as possible. We talk to the residents to find out about their interests, hobbies and their background. We then provide a variety of activities each day, from large groups, small groups and individual activities across different communities.
