Leisure and Lifestyle

Wongaburra has a variety of activities available for your loved one, to promote healthy, physical and social wellbeing. Our program includes some gentle exercises, sensory experiences as well as emotional and spiritual outlets.

The Wongaburra Leisure and Lifestyle Program

 

The Wongaburra Leisure and Lifestyle Program enhances quality of life for our residents and consumers. We believe access to activity and social engagement promotes health and wellbeing and provides people with the opportunity to have fun.

 

Our Leisure and Lifestyle Program is second to none. Some of our more popular weekly activites include indoor bowls, cards, cooking and coffee shop get-togethers. The highlight of the social calendar is our annual trip to Bribie Island for a well-deserved holiday for participating residents.

 

The community based Men's Shed program operates three days per week and provides mateship and enhances self-esteem. The benefits are immeasurable.

Men’s Shed

 

Just like their shed at home, this purpose-built, well equipped workshop, encourages mateship and comraderie while engaging men in various woodwork projects. The range of items made include toys, planter boxes, desksets, bird feeders, etc to name a few.

 

The men are very proud of their efforts and all items produced are sold with the money raised being invested in the Men's Shed. The shed is open to the community who wish to participate and is located under the Nursing Home.

If you would like to see what we make  please have a look at our Catalogue.

 

Our 2018 Christmas Catalogue is full of lots of handmade Christmas themed bits 'n' bobs, gifts  for under the tree and ideas for those Christmas stockings or for the kids.

 If you would like to purchase one of the many items available in either Catalogue or would like something specially made, please call 55401400.

FOLKS

 

FOLKS is an evening and day respite program held at Wongaburra funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP).  FOLKS provides a social outing that includes leisure activities, light afternoon tea and a 3 course meal. Consumers have the opportunity to go on planned bus trips to many locations.

 

All consumers from the community have an open opportunity to join in any activity/outing within or outside of Wongaburra. Consumers also have the opportunity to be picked up and/or returned home when required.

 

By enabling the activity program to be used by both residents and consumers, this allows an informed transition into residential care. Consumers have an opportunity to become familiar with the lifestyle while building rapport with staff and volunteers.

Wonga Warblings

 

The “Wonga Warblings” newsletter keeps the residents informed of the upcoming week's activities. Included is a weekly puzzle which also keeps the mind active.

 

Wongaburra is renowned for the amount of activities offered to all consumers and residents.
