Resident Activities at Kimberley March 31, 2017

Diversional Therapy Department

Here at Kimberley we are all about continuous improvement. We try on a daily bases to make improvements to suit our resident’s needs. Once we've met our new residents we devise a plan and activities that would suit their skill level an cognitive ability.

Activity programs are held once a month and include the "Kimberley Café' program held in the alfresco area adjacent to the dining room.  Our residents enjoy coffee, tea and home-made cakes in a café setting. 

Monthly BBQ's held in the gazebo garden, this where our residents enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs, hot chips followed by ice creams. Tables are decorated with flowers, and set with wine glasses and napkins just like a cafe setting.

Happy hour takes place once a month, residents enjoy a glass of non-alcoholic Champagne, nibbles and music.

As part of our weekly activities we will have a variety of musical and theatrical performances throughout the year, they include, The Morris Men Dancers, Ball Room Dancers, Double Trouble Concert, and  the Paul Robinson concert to name a few.

We have created a range of short activities which are meaningful and relatable for our residents. Such as home Duties e.g. washing and drying dishes, laying the table, folding washing, sorting socks….etc

This has been a team effort.   

The D.T team would like to take this opportunity to thank Terri, Carol, Nel, Di for their continuous support, helping with donations, ideas and their valuable time.
