“Not having to wash up and do shopping anymore is good… being here has taken the stress off the spine and this will help me avoid an operation, which I couldn’t do at my age. I go for a walk over to Coles and up to the RSL to meet people. I enjoy spending time in my room. I like to read and listen to classical music. Bus trips are good and having lunch out. You might not want to buy anything but trips get you out. I think they are essential. It is lovely and I enjoy it.”
