Stlouis Outing

We look forward to commencing  using the Care-App with you all early in 2018. This will enabled you to see what your loved ones are up to at all times. It is powerful tool for keeping everyone involved in the lives of  people when you can't be with them 24 hours a day.

Nursing Home Social Programs
Coming up in January, we have a representative from ARAS coming to our residents meeting. Relatives are most welcome to attend. We will be having a BBQ on the 25th of January and hopefully a visit from a petting zoo. On Australia Day, we will be having Aussie themed activities.

We will be saying farewell to Reverend Martyn Woodsford who has been conducting our monthly church service. he is going back to the UK to live in February.

Adelaide Home Care Social Programs
January and February's calendar I have focused on places where we can stay cool. I hope you all like all my choices but any suggestions are always welcome - just simply ask. In the next couple of months, I would like to visit a fuchsia nursery which was a suggestion made to me.

Victor Harbor Home Care Social Programs
Victor Harbor had a very busy but fabulous December. We were honoured to be invited to the Victor Harbor local Christmas pageant, which saw the very decorated St Louis bus filled with happy clients and escorted by St Louis elves, It was great to see the clients having so much fun and spreading Christmas Cheer.

St Louis Nov17 Newsletter

Home Care News
St Louis is happy to announce that the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency has recently advised St Louis that  our accreditation has been extended for an additional 12months due to our history of "consistent and sustained compliance with the Accreditation Standards".

Social Program
Our bus trips have been plentiful and I hope the venues have been of interest to many of you. 

Last month we visited the zoo with Frank and Suzie and a great day was had by all. We also had a wonderful afternoon tea at a local bakery which was lovely and quiet so everyone could engage in the conversations. The lunchtime concert at Elder Hall was music to our ears but I must remember to get there earlier. We all had our running shoes on in the end.

A reminder...
With summer rapidly approaching we would urge all our home care clients and families to review arrangements for extreme heat, blackout and bushfire emergencies. If you require any assistance with preparing and emergency plan, do not hesitate to contact your coordinator.
