Northern Gardens Aged Care brings a touch of Tuscany to their home

Northern Gardens hosted a wonderful family afternoon with a cultural Tuscan theme!

 A great collaboration between the Lifestyle and Kitchen teams to achieve a Tuscan style trattoria;

  • Amazing décor by the residents, Sabina, Deb and Jodie
  • Delicious menu; bruschetta, antipasto, pizza squares, pastas, BBQ sausages and skewers and salads, cheeses, fresh fruit, Tiramisu, crostini and tartlets.

In true Italian tradition, many family members and staff brought along their favourite dishes to contribute to the feast. It was wonderful to see residents, their families and staff celebrating with their much-loved dishes, live music and some dancing!

Many Thanks to;

  • the kitchen team who worked all week to prepare such authentic dishes and to volunteer their time
  • the lifestyle team who planned & implemented the Tuscan theme, engaging residents in the creative décor preparations
  • the many staff who volunteered their time on Saturday and brought along their families to be part of the day.
  • the team working on Saturday who worked tirelessly to ensure the residents enjoyed every moment
