Fish & Chips in the park

At PresCare Maryborough, we love supporting residents to get out and about in their local community. Sometimes, it’s the simple outings, like having fish and chips in the park, that mean the most, sparking reminiscing and connection.

Groundwater Lodge residents recently enjoyed this very outing at Anzac Park. The bus trip was full of conversation and laughter, with residents participating in a hilarious karaoke session using the bus microphone.

Once we arrived, residents enjoyed the open air and views of native trees as they reminisced about where they grew up, where they used to work, what they used to get up to as kids, and how things have changed around Maryborough. There were also stories of loved ones, new additions to families and shared interests.

Residents said the outing took them back to “the good old days” with resident Cole commenting, “Sharing fish and chips on a park table reminds me of family beach trips to Hervey Bay”. Resident Daphne claimed, “These are the best fish and chips I’ve had in years!”.

Outings like these feature in the Lifestyle Programs at both Groundwater Lodge and Yaralla Place, and residents are looking forward to more opportunities to socialise together in the wider community.
