As we progress towards the end of the year, our Newsletter becomes a source of reminders for upcoming events leading into the festive season.

An important reminder to our QCSL members is our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 29th November at 6pm. You will notice a number of upcoming events which will be promoted over the coming months, so we encourage you to ‘watch this space’

As some of you may be aware we have started a ‘weekly whispers’ as a way to keep everyone informed of the day to day events which are or have occurred. Please see Reception for a copy. If anyone wishes to promote or has any information they would like advertised, please do not hesitate to contact reception to do so.

I would like to inform everyone that the long awaited front Garden Project will kick off first week of November. We have obtained the services of the Horti Ladies to help create and design a peaceful, sensory garden for all residents and their families and friends to enjoy. If any family member has any ideas or suggestions, please do not hesitate to inform us and we can put these forwards.QCSL have purchased two Trishaw Bike (Cycling without Age) from a bequest received. The Trishaw Bikes were established in 2012 in Copenhagen. The Danish movement was started by Ole Kassow. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents. 6 years on the trishaw bikes are now represented in over 40 countries worldwide, and soon Quirindi Care Services will be a part of the movement. We look forward to sharing many stories and photos of our residents enjoying the fresh air and the community around them. This will give all residents regardless of restrictions the right to wind in their hair. If anyone is willing or would like to participate in being involved and becoming a “pilot” to operate the trishaw bikes, please let us know!

A positive quote to finish with and one I challenge all my staff to act upon – “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world” (Anne Frank 1929 – 1945)
Until next time…..
