Lifestyle and Leisure

The lifestyle and leisure program at Autumn Aged Care

Our aged care facilities offer a lifestyle and leisure program that strives to enhance the quality of life for each resident. The evidence is clear that activity-based experiences and social engagement can promote both mental and physical health and wellbeing. We encourage each resident to engage and have fun and make the most of each day with many activities on offer to suit a variety of interests.

Our lifestyle and leisure programs are developed in consultation with residents and are structured to their preferences and choices. Our lifestyle team creates engaging experiences for all abilities and through these activities we encourage and foster participation to develop strong social connections. Our specific memory support program provides specialized activities to residents that require such interventions.
