Regis partnered with allied health care specialist Health Strong at the start of the year to utilise a resource kit to promote engagement and well-being.
This kit has proved invaluable with Regis’ Lifestyle Coordinators organising interactive and creative group activities designed to evoke positive memories, improve socialization and cognition.
These aged care lifestyle activities can include theatre discussions, poetry, puppetry, camera club and more. The specialised activity kits are used as part of our diverse lifestyle program in every Regis aged care home.
At Regis Hornsby the puppetry activity is a favorite! Aged care residents bring to life stories, collaborating and take turns interacting with the various characters.
Lifestyle Coordinator Heather says that residents who have attended the puppetry activities enjoy the chance to bring to life the stories, relishing the chance to turn animator and puppeteer for the day.
Here’s a few of our favorite pics from last weeks activity.
