introduction to gardening @ the joinery

Spent the day getting hands dirty in the garden! 🌱

Our Introduction to Gardening workshop was an absolute success, and we’re thrilled to introduce you to the world of green thumbs! 🌿 From planting seeds to compose food waste, it’s amazing how a little dirt therapy can make you feel so alive. 🌼

Stay tuned for our upcoming exciting workshops and blooming adventures! 🍅🥕

Administration day

Behind the scenes at CHSP Administration Day! 📚💼

arthritis talk

Did you know that 1 in 6 Australians suffer from arthritis? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️

It causes chronic pain and is mostly common within the ageing populations. We had Ben Trobbiani, a Health Educator from Arthritis SA to come in and shared with our CHSP seniors on how to identify symptoms of arthritis, prevention and manage pain it causes by simple everyday exercises🧘‍♂️

Thank you Ben for the talk, our seniors are greatly appreciative!

elder abuse day

The ARAS advocacy session program was held at the MWASA, and it was an informative session for the seniors, staff and interns. 🔥💪

The highlight of the session was to raise awareness of the growing elder abuse in Australia and ensure the seniors were well-informed and know where to seek for assistance. Now, they understood the available aged care services and their rights to safe and high-quality care and services.📚👩‍🏫

forest bathing & wellbeing walk

We had the wonderful opportunity to take our CHSP seniors for a gorgeous morning walk in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens led by Green Adelaide staffs, Robyn Molsher and Amy Anderson and volunteers!🌤🌾

Our seniors also learnt greeting words in the Indigenous language. Thank you Green Adelaide for the amazing experience and afternoon Japanese tea ceremony. The seniors truly had a great time as this activity gave a unique experience of Adelaide Botanic Garden👏🥳🏞

eid fitr gathering

To celebrate Eid, we took our CHSP seniors for a gorgeous brunch at everyone’s favourite, The Ghan Kebab House! The seniors were treated to rice with grilled chicken, salad, bread, hummus and Mantou (Afghan dumplings) and free flow of tea.

Our celebration isn’t complete without a round of table games for our seniors; we played a round of Bingo and other brain teaser games that drawed many laughs and chatter! Nothing beats good food and great company.

Thank you The Ghan Kebab House for having us!

Walk at victor harbour

There’s nothing better than fresh air and a walk with friends as our seniors recently did. The seniors took an advantage of the good weather and get moving outdoors to stay active. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the trip, exploring Victor Harbour and Granite Island even though they did have to struggle with the strong wind. What a fun day!
