December has been a busy month at Embracia for all our staff, residents, family and friends.
Our lifestyle calendar has been jam packed with activities to get everyone into the festive spirit, the count down is on until Christmas.
Embracia Moonee Valley got the celebrations off to a start with their annual Christmas BBQ. There was a massive turnout of around 400 people which was lovely to see so many family members and friends getting involved. All guests enjoyed a tasty BBQ with over 1000 sausages cooked on the day. We had live entertainment with Sam Balbo who always gets residents singing and dancing, as well as a visit from Santa himself!
We have also featured a Christmas themed high tea, made Christmas tree decorations in our art and craft workshop and challenged the residents with Santa origami. Some of our residents traveled to the East Keilor RSL for their Christmas lunch function, whilst others enjoyed an outing to the Milleara Mall to organise their Christmas shopping for loved ones.
Last week we held our resident Christmas luncheon. Cam cooked a delicious Christmas feast, there were presents for everyone and the beautiful sounds of students from prep to grade 6 from St Martin’s De Porres school choir performing Christmas carols.
Today at Embracia Reservoir our residents are also being treated to their delicious Christmas lunch. Tonight they will also host their annual carol service with family and friends, which is a highlight of the Christmas Calendar for those involved.
We are looking forward to our New Year Eve Happy hour celebrations later this month to conclude another busy year of our lifestyle program in both Moonee Valley and Reservoir. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the holiday season, from the team at Embracia Victoria.
We provide exceptional aged care in an intimate community that feels like home.
