We model our programs on the wants and needs of residents. As a result, our Lifestyle and Living program is both flexible and comprehensive.
We offer residents a full suite of activities designed to meet their interests and abilities. The team work tirelessly to make events as engaging and joyful and possible, with excellent feedback from residents and families.
Although this year, we have continued to face challenges as a result of Covid-19 restrictions, the team has always found a way to create happiness and connectedness. We are thrilled to have been able to provide a full program of leisure and lifestyle activities.
‘There is an outing every second Friday to Eastlands, a local shopping centre, and that’s good. It’s shopping then a cup of coffee or tea, and then back for lunch.’
Maggie, residential care resident
‘We’ve done a men’s lunch at one of the local hotels and a lunch with the ladies as well. We do activities, setting up events, we even had AFL Grand Final day. It’s positive fun, and everybody goes out of their way to try and make the residents happy.’
Mark, Volunteer at QVCare
‘We had a themed dinner, French night, with a big screen showing pictures of Paris. We had French food and a good talk – you couldn’t hear yourself!’
Ken, Independent Living Units resident
‘Sometimes we drive through the CBD so the residents can have a look at the changes through the city over the years. We asked residents where they used to live and we’d go to their suburb.’
Christine, Carer at QVCare
