We have an extensive activities programme, which is implemented by our
three dynamic activities ladies, Maggie, Julie-Ann and Sandy.
They host monthly “ladies’ afternoons”, which include
professional manicures, and regular “men’s afternoons” which
often feature some sporting activity.
Other activities and entertainment include regular cooking and games
afternoons, while bowls and housie remain our most popular activities.
Friday afternoons feature entertainment with our resident former professional
pianist, lovely food platters and a selection of New Zealand wine.
Regular trips are also arranged, with outings to the beach, mall visits,
movies, concerts and social afternoon get-togethers. Guests are
invited to provide entertainment, such as musical items or craft
sessions, as well as speakers of interest to both residents and
An extensive library collection is rotated regularly and talking books
are also available.
A hairdresser attends twice weekly.
Church services – Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, and Union
- are held regularly in the Rest Home lounge.
All meals are prepared on-site in our kitchen by our
cooks, who enjoy the challenge of making meals tasty and interesting
for all our residents, using local produce where possible. The
menu is changed regularly and a dietitian oversees all menu planning.
There are tea and coffee making facilities available at all times for
family and friends.
