REDHS Lifestyle Team assists residents to enjoy planned activities Monday to Friday, often with the assistance of our wonderful volunteers. Family involvement and inclusion is always encouraged. There are activities on the weekends for residents including colouring, crosswords, scrabble, movie afternoons.
Our activities are designed to stimulate the resident’s physical and cognitive abilities in a safe, friendly environment, while developing friendships and providing enjoyable social activities.
We also welcome family and friends to the many special events, celebrations and commemorative days. Daily and monthly reminders are posted in each bedroom and on the main noticeboards.
Residents are encouraged to continue attending church services if they so desire, either at REDHS or in the community. Assistance will be arranged to help residents maintain this connection. Clergy from various denominations visit on a regular basis. Weekly, interdenominational church services are held on Tuesdays. Communion services or administration of the sacraments is also available to residents.
The Shire of Campaspe Library Service can arrange for regular and large print books on a
wide variety of topics to be delivered every fortnight. The Talking Book Library Service is available through local library facilities. Vision Australia can also supply a range of books/ recordings for visually impaired / legally blind residents.
Maintaining a community connection is vital to the wellbeing of everyone. We actively encourage the involvement of family, friends and the broader community in our residences. The resident’s family and friends are always welcome and have unrestricted visiting hours. REDHS can arrange “FaceTime” and telephone catchups where visiting in person is not possible. Mail services are available.
Meals are provided every day and include breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper. Sandwiches, sweet or dry biscuits and hot or cold drinks are available at all times on request. On Tuesdays and Thursdays a hot morning tea is served.
