Lifestyle Program Delivers More Choice

March 26, 2021

Mayflower has updated its lifestyle program to ensure that resident choice is first and foremost in everything we do.

Every day we encourage residents to choose an activity that they would like to do – that meets their personal needs – and then we help to make it happen.

This approach empowers residents to make their own decisions about what they do, and tailors their daily program around their own preferences and interests.

Some of the popular requests include a walk in the garden, Bingo, and morning tea at Mayflower Brighton’s very own Café Perla.

It was a ‘cuppa’ and cake at Café Perla that was chosen by Ann and Lorne, who enjoyed their morning tea and each other’s company recently, alongside Lifestyle Assistant Genevieve.

“I love taking requests, and tailoring activities around what residents really enjoy doing,” says Genevieve.

“On this morning we went for a lovely walk, visited our new pet ‘Birdie’, and then enjoyed some tea and sweets at the café - it was a lot of fun!”
