Lifestyle and leisure

Through all of our residential care facilities, we run a Leisure and Lifestyle program to ensure that our residents’ lives are rich and meaningful.

Our goal is to ensure that the transition from independent living to residential care is as seamless and reassuring as possible, and that life continues in a similar vein as before.

Through our practice of ‘person-centred care and social inclusion’, we get to know each resident’s individual needs, culture and religious background. We also welcome their family and community into our program.

A range of activities to choose from

Every resident is unique. Recognising this, we offer a diverse array of activities and programs – such as outings to local cafes, bus trips, excursions to the Melbourne zoo, museum or aquarium, and more. 

Closer to home, residents can choose from a range of activities such as:

  • Knitting for orphans in Cambodia
  • Weekly music and sing-along groups
  • Craft activities like patchwork, mosaics and painting
  • Mens shed activities
  • Gardening

Leading an enriching and fulfilling life needn’t stop when you enter a care facility. At Kooweerup Regional Health Service, we work hard to ensure that life is as colourful and stimulating as our residents want it to be.
