Residents gathered for an afternoon tea to celebrate Colleen and Brian’s 53rd wedding Anniversary. We all enjoyed listening to how they met and their special wedding day.
Ladies High Tea
A group of ladies came to enjoy the themed Valentine’s Day High tea. Conversations flowing as each person described how special the setting was with table adorned with red hearts, table cloths and 3 tiered platters. Soft music in the background for a wonderful time to chat and enjoy others company and to be waited upon by the Lifestyle staff to serve tea and coffee.
Couples afternoon tea
Couples came together for a very special afternoon tea some residents love ones where unable to make the occasion so the residents daughters joined in with their mother, making the afternoon tea even more special. Topic of conversation as asked by the lifestyle staff about frost dates and when they had gotten married.
Ladies gathered together to use their creativity to make these hearts. Mary was so proud of her efforts and wanted her photo to be taken. She has this on her wheelie walker and goes with her every day. It has a special place in her own heart.
Bush pantry cafe outing
Community outing trip was to the local café with Stanford and Wentworth residents enjoying a morning tea and viewing the beautiful bushlands that surrounds the café from the veranda. We look forward to going to some more café’s in the Redlands area in the coming months.
Music beats program with Wynnum Family Daycare
Residents gathered around on chairs in a big circle while the Children from Wynnum family Daycare arrived sitting on the carpet ready for their fortnightly music program. Residents got involved with the program joining in singing along to the Music therapist with nursery rhymes and songs using instruments that the children and handed out. Ribbon dancing was a massive success residents and children enjoyed the interaction with each other. We are looking forward to our next family Daycare visit as it will be a seated Yoga class.
Topaz courtyard afternoon tea
Doesn’t the table and centre piece flower arrangement look amazing? This is the setting for this group of ladies to chat and engage with others and enjoy their surrounds in the garden. Tea tastes so different in tea cups and bring back lots of memories of the good old days.
