On Friday the 21st of July our Freedom family at Banora Point travelled back in time to the 1960s - think peace and groovy signs, old vinyls, tie die sheets and everything psychedelic.
The colourful night was organised by the Resident Activities Coordinator and onsite team as a social occasion for the community to come together and mingle – and simply have fun!
The events take place every 12 months or so, with four events being held in recent years. They take many months of planning, and the residents and team work together to plan and create the decorations. For this year’s event, one of the residents from the community’s men’s shed group created a cardboard cut-out of a Kombi van for residents to pose for happy snaps in their 60’s fancy dress.
The community had their very own ‘casino’ for the night provided by The Sting Gaming, who provided the feature entertainment and a little glitz and glamour, where residents could play the blackjack and roulette tables to win prizes. Of course a 60's party wouldn't be the same without some fancy dress.
Our Banora Point Freedom team also made sure there was plenty of delicious dishes to keep the party going, including some classic 60's-style fare and refreshments.
Freedom offers a simple sense of community, and our Freedom families across Australia are made up of neighbours and friends - vibrant communities of fellow residents and teams including carers, cooks, cleaners, nurses, coordinators, therapists, maintenance staff, gardeners and admin. We encourage our communities to do what they love and continue to have a sense of playfulness and purpose.
At Freedom Aged Care Banora Point, our residents know how to let their hair down, because life’s simply GROOVY baby!
