Lifestyle Program

The Lewington House Lifestyle Program aim is to stimulate positive experiences, that can enrich mental, physical and/or spiritual wellbeing. It helps make the later years of all our residents’ lives as meaningful and enjoyable as possible.

Our Lifestyle Coordinator ensures all residents’ feel welcome, comfortable and included, and have the opportunity to be involved in a range of activities.

Residents are encouraged to participate in activities, whilst recognising that participation is a matter of individual choice. For example, some residents may prefer to be actively involved whilst others may be comfortable observing various activities take part. Knowing that they are in the company of others, and included in conversation can be very comforting.

The Lewington House Lifestyle Program recognises that each person is a unique individual, and is respectful of individual personal needs of dignity, independence, choice, participation, self-esteem and life satisfaction. There are opportunities for individual or small group activities, addressing residents unique interests and needs.

The program provides planned (generally a month ahead) activities with focus on a relevant theme or topic related to the time of the year and/or other annual events.

Activities are offered in the morning and afternoon, catering for a range of interests and abilities. These can include: gentle exercises, art/craft, games, pet and sensory therapy, pamper/massage/meditation, literacy/poems/reading, trivia/quiz/puzzles, local excursions, student nurse/children interaction, High Country Men’s shed, music appreciation & sing-along, arm chair travel, cultural & traditional celebrations, spiritual & religion, special events & celebrations, and so much more.

A calendar of activities is displayed in Lewington House each month. In addition, residents’ receive a weekly news sheet providing information on the activities on offer and any news items that may arise.

The program is adapted regularly to ensure it remains current and responsive to residents interests and needs.

A ‘Residents, Family, and Friends’  (RFF) Meeting is held every three months. The forum provides residents, families and friends an opportunity to share, ask questions and discuss any suggestions or other matters of interest.
