Regis Sandringham opens its doors embracing eclectic cultures and the wider Sandringham community.
Regis residents at aged care facility in Sandringham welcomed local community members to attend a Cultural Day for all ages. The event brought residents, volunteers, staff and community members together to celebrate diversity, culture, and dance as well as raise funds for the Cancer Council’s ‘The Biggest Morning Tea’. The Indonesian Community Victoria contributed by providing stalls for the event and our wonderful Regis volunteers assisted, manning many of the stalls and providing extra support during the day.
Enthusiastic community members took the chance to enjoy the sausage sizzle as well as pet the animals that took centre stage in the courtyard from ‘Animals on the Move’.
“It was a wonderful event with great activities and energy from community visitors,” Regis Lifestyle staff commented, “Everyone enjoyed themselves with the animal farm a big hit among residents.”
“It’s great to see people come together with cultural dancers performing a traditional Thai dance,” she said. “As well as a traditional Indian dance performed by one of our Regis staff.”
Our residents and staff are excited at the idea of hosting another community event as well as building stronger ties with the community. We’re overjoyed to see the positive reaction of the community as well as see the day come together in such a seamless way.
