Parafield Gardens is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, with a homely open environment. Our Parafield Gardens residential care home has a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. This atmosphere is supported by the team of staff and volunteers, and the interaction of residents and their families and friends. The home provides a welcoming ambience as you walk through the front door into the spacious foyer, greeted by the aromas of home cooking coming from the café.
The home is a hive of activity as residents enjoy group activities such as painting, table games, bingo, Wii games, craft and social days. There are also regular concerts and sing alongs, armchair travel sessions and a home library service. The themed lunches and special events such as bus trips are always a highlight on the activities program. Volunteers have a great trading table and there is a gift cart run by residents, with many items for sale. The visiting pets are always a welcome addition, and get many a pat and a cuddle from residents and visitors alike.
Residents are encouraged to personalise their room with personal belongings such as favourite chair, an heirloom quilt or a collection of family photos. They may also bring a small collection of plants and continue to care for them in the community garden.
