On Thursday 24 September, Resthaven Leabrook celebrated Resthaven’s 85th anniversary year with an afternoon tea at the home at 336 Kensington Road, Leabrook.
Manager, Mark Bednall, says, ‘Residents enjoyed a festive afternoon tea in the Hall, whilst they browsed a historical display celebrating Resthaven’s 85 year history.’
‘Guests visited the hall in “shifts,” to accommodate physical distancing.’
‘There was a photographic display of the history of Resthaven Leabrook, which depicted how much things have changed over the years.’
‘Resthaven Leabrook was opened in 1944, making it Resthaven’s oldest current residential aged care home, so there was a lot of history on display!’
‘Along with the photos, there were also interesting historical documents and memorabilia.’
‘Residents were delighted to look through it all, chatting together and reminiscing.’
‘Thank you to all who came along and helped us celebrate Resthaven’s milestone 85th birthday.’
Resthaven was founded in May 1935, and now supports thousands of older people with a range of in-home care, retirement living, and residential aged care across metropolitan Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland, Barossa, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Limestone Coast.
