Pony up! Outback adventure heads to Menaville

Hall & Prior Menaville Aged Care Home activity

Each year Menaville Aged Care Home enjoys an ‘Outback Adventure’ which brings all the residents out to enjoy some country animal fun. This year we had many family members come and enjoy a lovely Aussie-style barbecue luncheon, a show from a country and western singer and various animals with their loved ones.

There was lots of interest in our baby ducking and chickens, which are a part of the Hatching Chickens Program, these fluffy little critters always bring a smile to our resident’s faces. But the show-stopping animal visitor had to be miniature pony Kit Kat (Kitty for short). Owned by Michele Laing, Kitty is part of the Velma’s Pets as Therapy Program, which Menaville has been involved with for 15 years.

Everyone at the home enjoyed interacting with Kitty, who delighted residents and their families by performing tricks for them. A big highlight was the room visits – the joy on our residents’ faces when a pony comes into their room was just beautiful to witness!

 Thanks to all involved in such a great ‘Outback Adventure’.
