Merrimac Park Aged Care Facility Australia Day and Fitness Activities

Australia Day at Merrimac Park

Our residents at the Ritz aged care facility created some really nice lamingtons. They also spent some relaxing time doing beautiful art pieces and then enjoyed happy hour. This is in celebration of Australia Day – no better way to celebrate than with your mates!

Over in Raffles, our small group of chefs made vegemite and cheese rolls/sticks. This turned out to be quite a long and delicate task but they were worth the wait. Residents also spent time in the days leading up to Australia Day creating an ‘everything OZ” board in preparation for their happy hour.

Physical Activity at Its Best

While balloon tennis or table bowls may seem relatively simple and calm, rest assured it is not. Participants got a great workout by constantly using hand and eye coordination well, strength and balance, and memory and thinking skills – all while having FUN! Oh, and it can also get very competitive.

Keeping our functions, functioning

The aged care facility residents got involved in a variety of activities to keep us motivated. It also kept everyone moving, reminiscing and relaxing, and staying connected.
