Geoffrey - living his best life

At creative speech Geoffrey has been sounding out his B’s and H’s as well as practicing opening and closing his lips while saying each syllable of a word.

Each week Geoffrey is retaining more of the stories and there has been a noticeable improvement with his diction. New words are being spoken clearly as Geoffrey gives every class his all, and all the time with a huge smile on his face.

Creative speech is helping Geoffrey to communicate with his family, friends and caregivers, opening up his world even more and enhancing his mana.

Geoffrey always receives high praise from Robyn from Well Spoken Voice Coaching for the degree of effort he puts in during every session

Geoffrey, continue to be amazing!

Red Cross Meals on Wheels provides an invaluable service to the Hawkes Bay community and relies on the support of everyday volunteers.

Mark looks forward to lending a hand on Fridays (when Eunice takes wheel and he takes care of the deliveries) just as much as Mary looks forward to seeing Mark’s smiling face.

For the past seven months, Mary and Mark have enjoyed their weekly catch-ups where they check out Mary’s latest garden design.

Graeme loves cooking!

For dinner tonight, Graeme is serving beef stirfry 'lexistyle'.

Enjoy Graeme and Scott!

Welcome back Beth!

So great to have you join us again this morning after a long break, it seems like forever since we saw you last Beth.

At our Kapa haka session this morning Antoinette shared the story of Rona and the Moon, a beloved Maori legend about what happened when Rona dared to curse Te Marama (the moon).

Beth, who especially loves writing and reading her own stories, was totally captivated by this tale and was very keen to retell it in her own words.

Kerry loves going to the movies and he keeps a very close eye on the movie schedule online.

After many, many months of lockdown Kerry is now making the most of his new found freedom and ticking off his list of 'must see movies'.

Earlier this week, Kerry checked out Ticket to Paradise with George Clooney and Julia Roberts, a movie about a divorced couple that teams up and travels to Bali to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago. Although this was not Kerry's first pick for viewing this week, it was a much better movie than he anticipated. Kerry said that there were great moments of humour which made him laugh out loud.

The next movie on the list to see is DC League of Super-Pets and Kerry will share his expert movie review once its been ticked off.
