Be Part of Our Social Life

1

Our homes and staff facilitate many ways for residents to stay connected with friends and families, and opportunities to make new friends

Socializing is an important human need, regardless of which stage of life you are in. Our caregivers and dedicated activities staff are sympathetic to the unique situation of each resident, and make active efforts to involve all residents in life in the home.

                                                           
Often when moving into residential care homes, residents may isolate themselves, and seem to disengage from activities that they would normally enjoy. This can greatly impact overall wellbeing, and it is therefore an integral part of our care to provide a range of opportunities for socializing and interaction to encourage our residents to enjoy their time with us.

While we make active efforts to engage residents, we do respect the right of our residents to lead private lives if they so wish. Below are just some of the key ways in which we facilitate socializing and engagement in our homes, and how you can stay in touch with your loved ones.
 

Our Clubs

We facilitate in-house social clubs based on resident interests. Some of our clubs include the Kai Club, which goes for regular outings to try different food, and the Bloke Shed, where men can kick back and just be blokes. Each home has a unique set of clubs, so ask your local Manager about the available options.

Visitation

We encourage families and friends to visit as often as they can. We try to be as accommodating as possible in terms of flexible visiting hours, and we also encourage families to take residents out for meals, or to local amenities. Families and friends are absolutely welcome in our homes, and we love having the extra company.

Phone

Your loved ones are just a phone call away.  Each of our homes has a dedicated resident phone line for both incoming and outgoing calls. Our caregivers are happy to assist residents operate the phone.

Internet

Some of our residents and families enjoy regular Skyping and emailing. Residents and families are welcome to set up a PC, laptop, or tablet and their own internet service within a resident’s room. We will assist with this where possible.

Mail

In the age of technology, it’s still nice to send and receive real letters! We are happy to deliver letters to residents, and take resident letters to a post box for mailing.                                       

Newspaper / Magazine Delivery

We are happy to receive newspaper and magazine subscriptions on your behalf, and deliver them to you when they arrive.

Pets

Animals often provide wonderful companionship. Most of our homes have dogs or cats living on the premises, and some even have aviaries. Please check with your local home if it is possible to bring your own pet along with you.  

Community Groups

All our homes have strong ties with local community groups who regularly visit. Whether it’s a school, musical performer, or cultural group, there’s always an event right around the corner.

If you have any questions are concerns about your ability to stay in touch with loved ones once you move into our home, please speak to your local manager to find our more information.
