The residents at the Ashleigh House in Sale last month enjoyed a cruise ship-themed week of celebrations and activities.

Activities included games, on-board entertainment, dancing, a stopover in Darwin and cultural experience.

The final day was Gala Day.

The grand Gala Day saw many residents taking the opportunity to dress up in their finest clothes and have some glamour photos taken and the Cabaret Show and fine dining.

All staff got involved with events, from creating the props, curating the fine dining menu, to assisting the residents to get their glam on and also dressing up and participating themselves.

“It was such an enjoyable and special week for our residents. They eagerly awaited the day’s activities with their passports,” lifestyle co-ordinator Donna Quine said.

“The residents were absolutely delighted with the ship and we look forward to our cruise destinations to come.

“A huge thank you to Rhonda, who was our hairdresser for assisting with the Gala Day, and to Mel and Bree from Sale Greyhounds for their event photography. Also to Bunnings and other local businesses for their kind donations and support.”
