Northern Gardens update

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our Winter Newsletter; sharing some of the recent highlights and updates from our home.

Our recent introduction of Italian language classes hosted by residents for other residents and the staff is a fantastic example of cultural inclusion. Staff and residents singing along together at the weekly karaoke afternoon is also certainly adding to everyone’s well-being!

We are looking forward to our upcoming ‘Superheroes’ Day to recognize and celebrate the Aged Care teams doing such an amazing job in such challenging times.

Now more than ever, having a sense of purpose, engaging in meaningful experiences and staying connected emotionally & culturally, is so important for residents’ and staff well-being.

We always welcome your feedback and look forward to hearing you.

Kind Regards,

Susan & the Northern Gardens Team
