Leisure and Lifestyle Department

Port Stephens Veterans & Citizens Aged Care has a very dynamic Leisure and Lifestyle Team that provides both meaningful and engaging activities for our Residents across both our Harbourside Haven and Fingal Haven facilities.

Each facility employs Activity Officers who provide Leisure and Lifestyle Services which are based on our Resident’s individual needs and preferences. Residents are assessed upon admission and Monthly Activity Programs are developed based on both the assessment and the Resident’s choice. Resident’s also provide input into the Monthly Activities Program via Monthly Residents Meetings and Feedback Forms.

Activities Programs are reviewed by our Diversional Therapist to ensure that the residents are happy and meaningfully engaged in Activities that promote stimulation, enjoyment, wellbeing and laughter.

Some of the Activities are:

  • Weekly Bus Trips
  • Shopping Trips
  • Outings for Lunch
  • Monthly Theme Days
  • Concerts and Entertainers
  • Religious Services and Choirs
  • Intergenerational Activities
  • Men’s Specific Activities

The Leisure and Lifestyle Team believe that “laughter is truly the best medicine” and everyone has the right to participate in activities that they enjoy to create a sense of fulfillment and wellbeing.
