    Spring has sprung in the Limestone Coast!

    Resthaven clients have welcomed in spring, by making birdseed wreaths during their weekly ‘social group’ catch up at the Resthaven Limestone Coast Community Services office at 15b James Street, Mt Gambier.

    Manager, Karen Hammond, says, ‘This month’s social group theme was “spring”, and what better way to celebrate the warmer weather and bursts of new life than with bird seed wreaths?’

    ‘Clients really enjoyed getting involved in this activity, and getting their hands dirty!’

    ‘We mixed all the ingredients together, then put them in molds to dry. Once they were done, we tied a ribbon through the centre, ready to hang in the garden.’

    ‘The wreaths will attract all sorts of lovely bird life – perfect to watch with a cuppa on the front porch.’

    ‘Following this activity, clients enjoyed a light afternoon tea and a round of bingo, which is always good for a lot of laughs.’

    ‘Our social group is just one of the many wellness supports available for older people through Resthaven Limestone Coast Community Services.’

    ‘Our staff teams support older people throughout the Limestone Coast to continue to live independently in their own homes through centre-based groups, in-home support, and respite.’

    ‘We have offices in Millicent, Mount Gambier, and Naracoorte.’

    ‘Resthaven also operates a residential aged care home in Mount Gambier.’
