Residents of Macarthur Accommodation have always enjoyed a fabulous quality of life which has usually included a yearly holiday. The staff assist residents to budget their pensions and earnings to the cent, each fortnight, in order for them to fulfill their dreams.
Some of the examples of recent holidays are:
In May 2017, 8 residents and 2 staff members went to America for 23 days. They enjoyed Hawaii, Disney Land, Alcatraz, Universal studios and many other places and sites.
Residents and staff particularly loved going to Disney Land. They had so much fun on the rides, going into the stores and seeing their favourite Disney characters.
For two of our residents, this holiday was also seen as their honey moon. As they only got married a few months before.
In January 2015, eight residents and three staff boarded the Diamond Princess for an eight night cruise to Melbourne, Hobart and Port Arthur. Entertainment on board and our tours on shore were very much enjoyed. There was a bit of a Beatles theme so residents danced and sang along to the music. Two residents had a sea plane ride in Hobart which they thoroughly enjoyed. Two other residents and a staff member had a motorbike ride through Hobart. Others enjoyed the spas, they all went to the movies, trivia, horse racing and the shows put on by the cruise.
In April 2017, 5 residents and 2 staff members went on a 7 night cruise around the coast of Australia. Both residents and staff enjoyed relaxing on board the ship, watching shows, eating all the amazing food. Not to mention exploring different parts of Australia where the ship docked. One resident got to visit a close family member in Queensland when the ship docked there.
All residents and staff loved the experience and were very eager to look into more cruises and holidays for our clients in the near future.
