Montefiore’s Randwick, Hunters Hill and Woollahra campuses took on a distinct Spanish flavour at a series of recent theme nights.

The evenings showcased the music, culture and cuisine of Spain with Spanish dancers and singers performing for the Residents. The dining rooms were all decked out in the festive colours of red and yellow and artworks inspired by Spain and created by the Residents and art therapists were on display.

The catering team did an amazing job of creating a delicious Tapas menu which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The evening was full of fun, laughter and dancing and the Residents were delighted to get involved. ‘They had a wonderful time and the smiles on their faces said it all,’ said Terri Berger Executive Care Manager of Nursing Home, Randwick. Luda Norilov, Cultural and Lifestyle Coordinator at Hunters Hill believes that such nights ‘make a difference and enhance the Residents Quality of Life.’

‘These nights uplift the spirits of Residents for weeks after the event and is an opportunity for families and friends to go out and enjoy a night of  difference with their loved ones without leaving the security and support of the home,’ said Bronwyn Elbourne Group Manager of Diversional and Creative Therapies.

Montefiore has a busy integrated program of meaningful activities and cultural events at each of its campuses professionally designed to enhance the Quality of Life of our Residents.
