August was another big month at our Redlands aged care facility. Our residents celebrated Ekka Week, had an outing to Cleveland Library for a special Seniors Week event, and got some sunshine and their hands dirty with some therapeutic gardening.

A bit of spring gardening in Wentworth
Spring is Here !!!! On Tuesday 30th, we started in the garden ready for spring. We sat in the beautiful sunshine and fresh air. Residents helped weed and spruce up the planter boxes. They loved the feel of the sun on them and the sound of the birds chirping in the background. We also have a few bird nesting in the courtyards so that was a discussion with them as well.

Ekka Week at Stanford
During Ekka week in August we celebrated SHOW Day on the 10th with games and stalls and showbags in the Function room. Everyone enjoyed their morning with fun and exciting games and reminiscing of all the bits and pieces that was being shown in the stalls. One of our lovely residents Ed had in previous years enter his woodwork pieces in which he was presented with 3rd place. So lots of memories were going around the room on this special day.

Keep calm and playdough at Cleveland Library
On Wednesday 24th of August, we travelled to Cleveland Library for KEEP CALM AND PLAYDOUGH morning outing to celebrate Seniors Week in the community.  We enjoyed the tranquil setting of being in the library, sometimes thinking we were being too noisy, and calmly playing with the playdough in which everyone found stimulating.  We enjoyed some beautiful morning tea purchase from the Little Tree Café next door.
