Last Wednesday, residents at Aveo The Parks enjoyed a visit from the Family Day Care Cairns Group, where they welcomed over 30 children into their community with open arms, for a fun day of play and recreational learning.
Children were invited to bring along something special that they wanted to share with the residents, which included puzzles, favourite stories, stamps, and much more! The day ran smoothly, and the children happily settled into playing and openly interacting with the residents. There were many stories told, pictures drawn, and card games played.
Children and residents were also thrilled to meet ‘Teddy’, Village Manager Jenny Ball’s adorable and friendly pet dog. Teddy the two year old ‘Gravoodle’ seemed to love the kids and they certainly loved him back, giving him lots of pats, tummy rubs and cuddles!
The day was a wonderful combination of pet and kid therapy for our residents, and was enjoyed by all. We plan on making this a monthly activity for our residents at Aveo The Parks, and very much look forward to the next play day.
