Xmas In July Brings Joy to Japara Balmoral Grove & Oaklands

On Friday 14th of July, Christmas came early for residents at our Balmoral Grove home in Grovedale, Victoria. The wonderful kitchen staff provided a plethora of amazing Christmas themed food including plum pudding and a snowman cake.

The celebration provided residents with a fantastic opportunity to enjoy all the festive feelings that come at Christmas time in July, with family and friends also joining in the afternoon.

There was also a similar celebration on the 25th of July at Oaklands, in Adelaide, where the staff similarly put together a fantastic day of food and entertainment for the residents at the home.

A huge thank you and congratulations to the Kitchen and Lifestyle staff at both homes for hosting such a creative and enjoyable day for their residents and family members.
