We understand that stimulating social connections and a sense of purpose play an important part in enhancing overall wellbeing as a person ages.
Residents gain a sense of purpose and fulfillment through our lifestyle programs, which focus on physical movement, stimulating mental alertness, encouraging social interaction with other residents and the local community, celebrating cultural diversity, and catering to spiritual endeavours.
We arrange regular social outings for lunch or other excursions, as well as concerts, pet therapy, sensory programs, fashion parades, games, movie sessions, and arts and crafts – and we love to throw a party to celebrate special occasions. We have also built strong connections with Playgroup, a local high school and a day care centre, all of which visit our residents weekly.
Residents have the option to attend a weekly church service at Amaroo for various denominations. Chaplains are also available to provide spiritual and emotional support to residents.
Our dedicated Activities Officers strive to deliver positive and stimulating programs tailored to our residents’ preferences. We conduct a monthly audit to gain feedback from residents on past activities to ensure that we are continually improving our lifestyle services.
Residents at Amaroo have the opportunity to participate in activities six days a week, with family and friends always welcome to join their loved one in all daily activities. Our Calendar of Events is updated monthly and is displayed around Amaroo and in our monthly newsletter.
