The Port Elliot Wellness Group, run by Resthaven Murray Bridge, Hills & Fleurieu Community Services, recently visited a group of year five students at Investigator College for a morning of fun, games, and intergenerational learning.
Program Assistant, Jenna Gamma, says, ‘The Port Elliot Wellness Group meets every Tuesday for morning tea, exercises, wellness, fun and games, or outings.’
‘The outing to Investigator College was certainly a hit!’
‘We had a great morning with the year five boys, who had planned morning tea and games.’
‘We started by introducing ourselves, with everyone enjoying the discussion about how school today is so different from how it was when they went to school.’
‘The group then played several games together, before several of the students made and served coffee and tea, which very much impressed the Wellness Group members!’
‘Feedback from the day was very positive, with many group members asking if we can do it again soon.’
‘Activities like this one benefit not only the clients, but also the students.’
‘It is lovely for young people to share the wisdom of the older generation, and for older people to spend time with the younger generation.’
‘Thank you to the students of Investigator College for having us, and we hope to see you again soon!’
The groups are held at the old School, at 50 North Terrace, Port Elliot, adjacent the Resthaven Port Elliot residential aged care home.
Resthaven has provided outstanding care and support for older people and their carers for 85 years.
