Dining Co Project

Helping to shape the future of age friendly dining in the City of Onkaparinga.

During the months March and April 2021, people were invited to visit Jimmy Deane’s Restaurant – located at South Adelaide Football Club – or Becks Bakehouse, Port Noarlunga, to take part in the Dining Co Project.

The Dining Co. Project aimed to co-design age friendly eating-out experiences, gaining further understanding and responding to the needs and preferences of older people.

Eating out should be inviting, inclusive and accessible, and it should support meaningful social connections. Meaningful connections, in turn, support people to age well in their local communities.

Steps the venues took to become more age friendly.

  • all ages friendly food and drinks offers
  • ensuring people of all ages feel welcome and at ease
  • dementia awareness and education for staff and management
  • quieter and more comfortable seating options
  • special deals and offerings; and
  • social initiatives that promote community connections.

The Dining Co. Project was led by ACH Group and it is supported by Office for Ageing Well, SA Health. The project was supported locally by the City of Onkaparinga.

Need a weekend pick-me-up? You'll be inspired by these 'Glam-mas'!
The ‘Fashion Grandmas’ known as 'Glam-mas' are a group of influencers over 60 who are showing China that age is no barrier to elegance. They do fashion live-streams, share positive messages about ageing, and speak out about domestic violence.
"Your life is grey if you are always afraid of ageing and death," said Lin Wei, 64, explaining her philosophy on growing older and enthusiasm for donning stylish clothes and makeup.
"You are old, you have wrinkles, you don't have too much energy, or your figure becomes baggy. But this is something you can't go against, so you need to face it with positivity."

The annual Commemorative Service to honour those who served in the Bomber Command during World War II was held last weekend.

World War II veteran Fred Brown, who lives at ACH Group's Kapara residential care home, served as an air gunner in the Royal Air Force. Fred is pictured with Governor of South Australia, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC at the Service.

You may remember that Fred has written an autobiography 'Get Fell In' about his extraordinary life in the RAF. Check out Fred's book here: www.amazon.com.au/Get-Fell-Gunners-Bomber-Command-ebook/dp/B08L41DDYH
