Lifestyle and Leisure

Leisure and lifestyle program

Fairway offer a leisure and lifestyle program that enhances the quality of life for each resident. We believe activity and social engagement promotes health and wellbeing and we encourage each person to have fun and enjoy each day.

Our leisure and lifestyle programs are developed in consultation with residents and are tailored to their interests and abilities to foster participation and an active lifestyle as much as possible.

Activities to support or residents

We also have a range of wellbeing programs available – such as pet therapy, massage therapy, exercise programs, music therapy, art therapy and craft groups, gardening programs, bibliography group, beauty therapy, dementia specific therapies and more.

Fairway is the first aged care facility to introduce Cycling Without Age which is a community initiative that started in Copenhagen in 2012. Fairway has collaborated with Cycling Without Age to enable our frail elderly to reconnect with; and strengthen our connections with Bayside community. Volunteer pilots (riders) enable the elderly to feel “the wind in their hair” by riding on our local coastal bike paths while connecting with local community all from the front seat of the custom-built bike.

Some examples of activities at our Fairway include:

  • Social events – such as knitting groups, friendship group, high tea, music appreciation, happy hour, themed events/parties or visitors from the local community or schools and kinder
  • Entertainment – such as movies, performers, speakers and presenters
  • Games – mahjong, rumikin and quizzes, cards, board games and bingo
  • Outdoor activities – cycling without age outings, walking groups, bus outings and more.
  • Spiritual program – communion, mass, friendship program, pastoral care, music therapy, gardening
