New television means residents won’t strike out

Facility manager Joanne Douglas said the new GVA 32-inch television ” supplied by The Good Guys Joondalup ” would give residents opportunities for communal activities.

‘It has enabled more residents to participate in the Wii bowling at the same time which makes for a very competitive and fun competition,’ she said.

Ms Douglas said a volunteer family ” who play Wii with the residents every Thursday ” played an instrumental part in applying for the donated TV.

‘Group activities and socialisation is extremely important in aged care, as it reduces isolation and loneliness, assists residents to remember how to socialise and is a great opportunity for having a chat and a laugh with someone,’ Ms Douglas said.

Proprietor Debbie Lanario said The Good Guys team tried to be involved with the community whenever it could.
