Bupa Ascot Care Home - Hospital Care

1 day ago - Invercargill

Southland Sushi and that Southern Charm welcome our new Care Home Manager!

In true Southland fashion, residents at Bupa Ascot Care Home inducted their new care home manager with something she had never tried before – a fresh batch of cheese rolls.

With an eager crowd watching her, Charmaine Knight thanked the residents for her first cheese roll experience, hosted at the care home on this week.

"I didn't like swedes, but I could definitely eat these again," she joked.

After much debate over the best way to make the Southland food-favourite, care home resident Phyllis Beckett's recipe won the new manager's heart.

"I use onion soup powder, cheese, and Anchor evaporated milk, then you finish them off with butter once they're cooked, lots of it," Phyllis said.

Charmaine began her role in June after moving from Western Australia. "It was my first time in Invercargill, I hadn't even visited the place. I just turned up. Since then I've been really welcomed by the staff, the residents, and the residents' families from the minute I walked in the door. It's a great new adventure for me," Charmaine said.

After 21 years of working as a paramedic and in management roles for St John, Charmaine had spent the past four years working in community aged-care in Western Australia.

"I wanted to continue working in aged-care. My husband and I are used to always living and working remote, you can't get much further than Invercargill so it was a good opportunity for us."

With her "wealth of knowledge" in aged-care, she saw an opportunity to contribute "exciting new ideas" to the Bupa Ascot Care Home, she said.

"We're looking at evolving the dementia centre. The internal garden project was one of the first things we wanted to look at to incorporate more dementia-friendly areas for residents."

Plans to run a "Christmas train-themed" event had already sparked "fierce competition" between residents and staff, she said.

The most important part of her role was to support residents to live an amazing life, she said.

"That's what they should be doing at this point in their lives and it's my goal to make that happen."

If you'd like to know more about our new care home manager, Charmaine, please feel free to call us on (03) 217 5714.

Cancer Society of Auckland and Northland - Formal groups & organisations

Cancer Society's 'The Longest Day' Golf Challenge – 72 Holes. 1 Day.

Cancer Society’s ‘The Longest Day' golf challenge is a great way to support the Cancer Society and is a golfing endurance event that will test skill and stamina.

The cancellation of many of the Cancer Society’s fundraising events has caused a significant loss of income to help support people living with cancer. 

The Cancer Society’s ‘Longest Day Golf Challenge' is a great way to support the Cancer Society and is a golfing endurance event that will test skill and stamina. The challenge is to complete four rounds of golf—that's 72 holes—in one day to raise funds for the Cancer Society.

The Cancer Society invites golfers to dust off their golf clubs and get ready for The Longest Day golf challenge, raising money for people with cancer. Players tee off at sunrise and play through to sunset, making the most of daylight on the longest days of the year. Choose the day, the course, tell your mates and make the team—or do it solo.

Participants choose the day, the course, and the team - or play solo if they prefer. The longest day of the year is 21st December, but participants can play any day in December or January that suits them.

Logan Middlemass from Cromwell completed the 'The Longest Day’ challenge at the Cromwell Golf Course to raise funds for the Cancer Society. Logan’s father was the head greenkeeper at Cromwell golf course when he was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer at 56 and passed away 18 months later. Logan completed the challenge in memory of his dad.

Ideally, participants choose a day when the golf course is as quiet as possible. It is recommended to avoid competition days and liaise closely with the Club Manager/team captain to plan the day as thoroughly as possible.

It is recommended to play in teams of 2-4 to hasten the play. This challenge is an actual test of endurance, but 72 holes are just more fun with friends! Create a team when you sign up or afterwards from your fundraising dashboard.

Every dollar raised through ‘The Longest Day’ will go towards cancer care in our community, education and awareness programmes, and life-saving cancer research.

Whether it's driving someone to treatment, free specialist advice and support for cancer patients, sitting with someone during their treatment, or accommodation when undergoing treatment far from home - the Cancer Society is there to help.

What to do in your garden in December

December in Your Garden

Gardeners should be working towards harvesting and garden displays for Christmas enjoyment. As holiday mode takes hold, enjoy relaxing evenings in the garden with a hose in one hand and a drink in the other!

Kitchen garden

This is a month of rapid growth so ensure you pay attention to watering, weeding, feeding and spraying.

Feed tomatoes once a week with a fast acting liquid such as Tui Organic Seaweed Tonic. Remove laterals (side growths) on tall tomato varieties as they grow and ensure they are firmly stalked. Water regularly.

Mulch around vegetable plants to conserve soil moisture, compost works well.

Protect plants from caterpillars with Diatomaceous Earth.

 

Flower garden

Sow your favourite seeds such as Ageratum, Cosmos, Cyclamen, Rudbeckia, Marigolds, and Zinnia.

Lift spring flowering bulbs once the leaves have died down completely, and store in a cool dry place.

Water gardens in the evening or early mornings, especially plants in containers which will dry out quickly in hot or windy weather.

Remove dead flowers from Roses to encourage new blooms.

 

Lawns

Raise the lawn mower up a level for the summer season. If cut too short, lawns will dry out too quickly.

Water lawns in dry weather and apply fast acting lawn food such as Tui Lawn Force to keep lawns fresh and green.

 

Container Gardening

Fill pots with flowering annuals such as Petunias, Marigolds, Phlox or Impatiens for a bright Christmas and summer display.

Use Waterwise Water Storage Crystals in potted plants to help them survive infrequent watering while you’re away on holiday. This can be added without repotting the plants.

Third Age Solutions Limited - Advocacy services

3 weeks ago - Nelson

What do older workers want and need?

Should an employer consider an older worker to be aged 50+ or 55+ years onwards?

It was a pleasure to be able to join an online workshop today alongside Nelson-Tasman regional leaders, public service officials and hosted by the Office for Seniors, to contribute to the finalising of an Older Workers Employment Action Plan. Older workers make up around a third of our labour force. The 4 key objectives aim to ensure all older workers are able to access work that meets their needs, that they are valued and thrive in the workplace and can contribute fully to the economy. .. and yes, we also debated the above questions!

The draft Plan is open for feedback from businesses and individuals until 19 November at: Older Workers Employment Action Plan | Te Tari Kaumātua (officeforseniors.govt.nz) 

 

Coaching for Seniors

Third Age Solutions is available to coach older people who are wanting to plan ahead or to re-focus the third phase of their life.

One of Bev’s clients, Malcolm* in his late 70s, is pro-actively planning for the third phase of his life to allow for more time to do the things that he enjoys most. Afterall, if he plans to live to 100 then that's over 20 years of living on his horizon!

As part of his plan, Malcolm is wanting to create more time and space for his hobbies, and to not let daily routines takeover too much of his time. He appreciates the regular coaching check-ins (set to suit at a pace which best fits for him), to discuss his progress and pick-up new ideas on how to approach his plans. He feels more energised and focused on the areas of his life that bring the most pleasure to him.

Contact Bev to discuss how she can assist with coaching a senior person. 

Providing professional, trusted and caring services to seniors.
