Recreation

People living in residential accommodation at Castlemaine Health are encouraged to be active.

They’re supported to pursue recreation and lifestyle interests. They enjoy a vibrant social life and maintain strong connections with the local community.

Each residential unit has its own recreation program that’s been designed to meet the needs of groups and individual residents.

The program responds to resident input and encourages families, friends and community members to participate.

Activities include:

  • outings
  • exercises
  • music and performance
  • games
  • celebrating special events
  • shopping
  • social activities
  • community activities
  • art and craft
  • life story
  • cooking/food events.

The program also provides 1:1 support, particularly for new residents to assist settling in to the residential environment.
