Live your life. Stay well. Belong.

Activities at Anthem

Life at Anthem is all about living your life, staying well and belonging. To help our residents achieve these things, we encourage participation in a range of activities. These range from gentle chair yoga and brain gyms, to music and games, shopping mornings, and a range of socially interactive sessions designed for those in care.

 There is also a vegetable garden for those that love to get a little dirt on their hands. Of course, living in the Southern Highlands means we are close to a wonderful array of places to go on outings and enjoy our natural environment.

We also love to welcome visitors coming in to entertain everyone. One of the most important groups of visitors comes from Bambinos Kindergarten, which is just a short walk from Anthem. The children from Bambinos come to Anthem on a regular basis and perform for the residents. The children love to sing to the residents, they also bring artwork, and sit and write and draw with them too.

This is a very enriching and stimulating experience for the residents who take great delight in these visits. The children also love their visits to Anthem, a love that is apparent in the enthusiasm they put into their performances.
