Gearing up for Seniors Week

Gearing up for Seniors Week

Bolton Clarke communities across Queensland will be hosting photographic exhibitions featuring their residents as the stars during Queensland Seniors Week from 18 August.

The Our Focus is You exhibitions will run at 14 Bolton Clarke communities across the state as part of a week of events around the theme Celebrating A Queensland for All Ages.

In Mackay, celebrations started early with a high tea for Mackay At Home Support clients and residents of the Bolton Clarke Breezes, Mackay retirement community.

More than 50 guests travelled from across the region to be part of the event, which offered a menu of treats baked by Bolton Clarke’s Mackay At Home Support team and aimed to build social connections.

Meanwhile at Bolton Clarke Baycrest, Hervey Bay residential aged care residents were dressing in their finery and kicking up their heels at the annual Baycrest Ball to start their Seniors Week celebrations.

At Bolton Clarke Milford Grange, Eastern Heights residents will begin the week in style with a Seniors Day celebration complete with vintage car rides.

Throughout the week other events range from a state-wide Day of Feasting from a Maggie Beer signature menu to pampering, cooking and craft days, a cent sale for residents at Cunningham Villas, Bowen, an art gallery tour for residents at Bolton Clarke Fernhill, Caboolture, a week of festivities at Carrington, Parkinson, petting zoos, kindergarten visits and old-fashioned parkland picnics.

Bolton Clarke’s Galleon Gardens community will close out the celebrations in style on 29 August with a show day complete with farm animals, games and show bags.
