DESPITE an average age of 90, Brightwater Care Group residents hit the dance floor at a ball last month.

About 90 residents of Brightwater’s Edgewater and Joondalup aged care facilities, along with their families, friends and staff, attended the Big Band 40s Ball at Quinns Rocks Bowling Club.

After a spit roast dinner, they danced to live music by Phil Hatton and his five-piece band.

Brightwater chief executive Penny Flett said the event was made possible by the RM Harken gift, which was given to Brightwater to fund social activities for residents and clients.

“The night was planned in an effort to create a social event that would help residents create special memories,” she said.

“The dinner dance was greatly anticipated by residents who spent considerable time planning their outfits and getting dressed-up for the big occasion.”
