Aged care homes Peninsula Village and Cooinda Village held their annual free Community Open Day last Saturday, October 12.
Visitors were able to take a tour of the facilities, spend time with residents, and have food from the barbecue.
Entertainment includied a petting zoo, face painting, a belly dancer, jumping castle and live entertainment by Los Bonkers, guitarist Paul M. Leuenthal, Slam Tango Duo and Brisbane Waters Brass Band.
Chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said the Day aimed to support the needs of residents, their families and the local community.
“When we host this Community Open Day, it is not about Peninsula Villages.
“It’s about our staff, our residents, their families and giving back to the local community,” he said.
“We offered them a glimpse into what life is like here at the Village.”
