We continue to challenge stereotypes around the community’s perception of older people. Our ‘Wisdom at the Airport’ event, which saw six prominent older South Australians dressed as silver ‘statues,’ joined by a 70-strong Sing for Joy choir flashmob to surprise hundreds of passersby at the airport, delivered the important message: ”we’re here and we want to spread our wisdom through society.”[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery interval=”5″ images=”2067,2068″ img_size=”full” onclick=””][vc_row_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2069″ img_size=”full”][vc_raw_html]JTNDZGl2JTIwY2xhc3MlM0QlMjJ2aWRlb1dyYXBwZXIlMjIlM0UlM0NpZnJhbWUlMjB3aWR0aCUzRCUyMjEwMDAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjI1NjIlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGaHBiOFAwMFZ5c28lMjIlMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyMjAlMjIlMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0UlM0MlMkZkaXYlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]
Through the arts we continue to provide a vehicle to celebrate the talents of customers, volunteers and staff. The five SALA events saw more than 86 people showcase their love of art; sponsorship of the guitar festival provided the opportunity for residents at ViTA and Perry Park to join the resonance program; and Sing Together saw the joining of the Sing for Joy choir with four primary schools, a CALD choir and Aboriginal choir.
The Tailor Made Project – where consumers, carers and providers jointly developed a new model of respite care for people with younger onset dementia and their families – is challenging the traditional models of how respite has been delivered to this group, by co-designing a golf group that is producing excellent outcomes.
