Jean Muscat and Phyllis Zarb on National Italian Day at Georges Manor.
THE most important role of a Residential Aged Care Home is to provide the best possible care for its residents both physically and mentally.
Georges Manor in Georges Hall, employs full time a team of Diversional Therapists who meticulously plan and put into action numerous activities with the purpose of stimulating the mind and engaging the residents in sociable interaction.
"There is always a reason for celebration, giving residents opportunities to be creative with colourful preparations in arts and craft as well as costume and creative food ideas," a spokesperson said.
"National Italian Day provided such an opportunity, with decorations, music and dancing and the Chef created lovely Italian cuisine."
Diversional Therapist Erin said it was especially heart-warming to see the active engagement of those residents with Italian heritage.
This month Georges Manor will be celebrating it's 10th anniversary. When opened, it lifted the standard of residential aged care, winning several industry awards and Advantaged Care has continued to redefine the industry ever since, building and operating award-winning facilities in Bondi, Menai, Prestons and with future planned growth in South West Sydney.
Advantaged Care was formed by the Kresner family in an effort to overhaul aged care options in Australia following a difficult personal decision to find suitable residential aged care accommodation for a relative.
