Melaleuca, Home for the Aged

June Newsletter

June… the football tipping is going well and the competition is rife.

We have seen a lot of new faces around our home this month. The new rooms are filling up and the dining room has more tables and chairs waiting for more people to dine out for lunch.

Fred was truly amazing on the 6th. He entertained us for our happy hour. He presented each song and sang all of them well. The Music Reflection’s ladies did a great job in backing by clapping and swaying to the music and Alex played her guitar.

Family Day care has had a big change of children. We had all the toddlers that are just learning the songs and games that Jill teaches them. Jill will keep us informed on the progress of the big kids that have just started school.

21st saw the opening of the new area, with lots of distinguished people, cameras and speeches being made. Did you see the plaque dedicated to Dianne Warren’s service to Melaleuca? It’s in the new area and it’s called “The Warren” we think it’s a great idea.

Our music therapist Alex “the guitar lady” arranged with the men of Grenoch and Melaleuca to meet and have a radio session “The Residents” are heard on 96.9 fm on Thursday morning at 10:30am and Sunday at 3:00pm.

We had a lovely bus trip to Deloraine; the sunshine, the animals in the paddocks, laughter and good company. Lunch was welcomed after we arrived later than planned and good conversation took up the rest of the afternoon. What a great day we had. We promised to see them again in the near future.

Coffee morning was well attended this month and the cakes we are served are lovely. We used some of our saved money to buy some great gifts for Dianne’s retirement.

Lots of exciting things happening in June! Don’t forget to check the calendar.

 You may also be aware that the new wing will be known as “The Warren”. The plaque says it all.
