The Foundation’s care homes are busy hubs of activity all year round, with every manner of meaningful and enriching engagement-in-life programmes for residents to choose from, led by our creative and imaginative diversional therapists and activities assistants.
On any one day, residents might be taking part in poetry and performance, laughter yoga, Tai chi, ‘Master Chef’ events, debating, music and movement sessions, van trips to local places of interest and inter-village bowling tournaments. Or they might be learning how to get the most from their smartphones or other IT devices, contributing to Waitangi Day or ANZAC displays, or preparing craft items for sale in the various village fairs.
The Christmas season is no exception, and our teams go ‘above and beyond’ to make sure there are always lots of festive activities for residents to enjoy. Visits to Christmas festivals, Christmas plays, Christmas tree decorating, magical Christmas light shows, Christmas shopping, baking Christmas treats, parties, themed parades, church services and carols – the list goes on. There’s always something to look forward to at Selwyn!
