Jim's homecoming

18 November 2020
Boronia Cottage Suncare Community Services

After COVID-19 restrictions lifted, much-loved Suncare customer Jim Frew was welcomed back to Boronia Cottage with open arms.

“I look forward to visiting fortnightly. It is so relaxing, it’s like a second home,” said Jim.

Boronia Activities Coordinator and our team of Support Workers have created a welcoming home-away-from-home experience. Nutritious home-cooked meals are on offer and each stay is tailored to suit individual customers. A variety of COVID-safe activities are also available for customers - picnics, visits to cafes and restaurants, weekend markets and local sightseeing. In-house activities include arts and crafts, games and trivia, cooking experiences, movie days and even breakfast in bed.  

“It’s up to you what you want to do. You can do as little or as much as you like, and the staff are always willing to help,” said Jim.
