Barbara is an active and vibrant member of our community, who loves keeping busy with her sewing.
What do you like about living at Alexandra Gardens?
I like the smaller house environment. In just a few months, I’ve been able to form some lovely friendships with other residents who I think of as neighbours. We come together in our own lounge room and eat meals in our own dining room. It’s much more personal – much more like home.
What things do you like to do here?
Sewing has always been my passion. I have my sewing machine and supplies in my room, and always have a project on the go. The staff are so helpful and friendly. They help me attend my weekly sewing group in Rocky, and they’re really interested in my quilting.
What’s your favourite part of the Lifestyle Program?
I do morning exercises, join in the music activities and concerts, and I was part of the fashion show recently which was so much fun! I’ve been on some great outings around the local area, too.
How would you sum up your life at Alexandra Gardens?
I love everything about it, especially the social aspect. I enjoy the company immensely. I also like the meals, being able to welcome family and friends, and keeping connected to the wider community. I’m very busy, and very fulfilled.
At PresCare Alexandra Gardens, we love supporting residents to continue to live their way, with grace and dignity.
