When you think of January in Australia you think of hot summer days at the beach, relaxing in the pool and listening to Triple J’s Hot 100 with friends and of course Australia Day Celebrations. Residents from Hardi Aged Care Manly Vale enjoyed a whole week dedicated to Australia Day with different activities, but the activity they enjoyed the most was Amazing Race around Australia.
The residents at Hardi Aged Care Manly Vale love sharing stories of where they grew up and the places they have traveled around Australia. So, the lifestyle team thought this activity would be amazing to help them reminisce about these memories. Residents were divided into three teams of five. With a large map of Australia, dice and a bundle of “Aussie Questions, Slangs, History, and Animas”.Each team would roll the dice starting in Tasmania and whatever state they fell on they had to answer a question referring back to it if they got the answer right they got to move on to the next state. The team who travelled the most won the game. Residents love this game and can’t wait for the next place to ‘travel’.
