Anzac Day at Albury & District

Last week, the community from our Albury & District aged care home gathered to commemorate Anzac Day.

Our Lifestyle team lead the service with the assistance of residents Clem, Gabriel and Irene who laid the wreath, and Ian who recited the Ode and raised the flag.

Administration team member, Laura, also created a PowerPoint presentation so that residents, staff and families could read the words to the various prayers and songs that were recited. As is tradition at Albury & District, Carol form the Lifestyle team made the wreath for the residents to lay.

The lovely ceremony was concluded with a rousing rendition of Lee Kernaghan’s ‘Spirit of the Anzacs’, and following the service, residents and family members gathered to share stories and support each other where needed.

After a hearty lunch put on by our Hospitality team, the community gathered around our tables for the annual game of ‘two-up’, which was enjoyed by all (especially the winners)!
