Visiting the SA Museum and Lunching at Good Social Cafe with the CHSP Seniors

Earlier this month, we took our CHSP seniors to a trip to visit the South Australian Museum! The warm springtime weather was perfect for the seniors to take a leisure stroll to the museum from Victoria Square.

It was an exciting tour for the seniors, and a quite a shock for some who had never visited the SA Museum before! We managed to explore all the exhibitions available, except for the Ancient Egypt gallery which some of our seniors found too scary! Our seniors were particularly amazed by the real life exhibits and were so very eager to learn more about them.

We also treated the seniors to lunch the Good Social Café afterwards. The delicious food and the charming atmosphere of the café was perfect for catching up or just relaxing after a morning of walking.

Can’t wait for the next outing with our seniors!

Games Day with CHSP Seniors!

To celebrate the ease in lockdown restrictions, our CHSP Seniors enjoyed a fun day indoors playing friendly games with friends! 🧩 We had played numerous mind-twister games that left the seniors full of laughter and chatter.
 
Among all the games played, the crowd favourite was Bingo! Our seniors were very engrossed in the game and many began to show their competitive streak . There was even a demand for a second round!

Maintaining Wellbeing with Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Australia and the second most common cancer to cause death in women.

MWASA held an informative talk on breast cancer for all women ages 40 and above on the 12th of August. Our ladies learnt how to recognize early signs of breast cancer and what measures to take to keep themselves as healthy as possible.

It is important that breast cancer is detected at early stage, even before it can be felt. This greatly improves the treatment options and health outcomes for the individual. Making the effort to exercise daily and making regular appointments with your GP is a good measure to take to spot the signs of breast cancer early.

Thank you to Marita Aldride from Breast Screening SA for coming in for the informative talk; our ladies were definitely very grateful.

CHSP Seniors Tour the Parliament House!

Last week, our Seniors were given the opportunity to tour the Parliament House of South Australia
They were led to view the colonial architecture while also learning about the roles, history, and work of the Parliament. Our seniors were greatly invested and asked a string of questions throughout the tour; hopefully, they did not overwhelm the tour guide too much!
Big thank you to Natalie Young, the Community Education Officer, for the informative tour as well as Parliament House for hosting us! Our seniors had a very good time!
