You can be sure that you will be welcomed by friends when you step into an Afford home. They are places that you can call your home and where you are supported by friends to live a life of independence and choice that you have always wanted.
Participate in Activities You Enjoy
In the Butterflies home, there are always smiling faces and a love of getting out and about. Lynette and Rachel love to visit their local park for a picnic or BBQ or going out for a night of dinner and dancing. They also take great pride in caring for their vegetable garden and nurturing their seedlings until they are ready to pick and use in healthy meals they prepare in the kitchen.
Engage with the Wider Community
The pair really enjoy socialising and exploring more of what their community has to offer. They recently went out to Zone Bowling in Penrith where they liked being immersed in all the sounds and lights of the bowling alley. As the night went on, the ladies became more confident in lifting the bowling balls and soon were experts at bowling the ball to hit down the pins.
On another occasion, the friends decided that dessert and coffee were in order and were supported by staff to travel to Penrith RSL. An added bonus was having a live band play music, which, of course, meant lots of dancing and laughing.
Get Out and About With Friends
Although Rachel and Lynette very much enjoy getting out and about, they also love being in their home. One of their new favourite pastimes is having dinner and then warming up their karaoke machine so they can sing and dance at home! They sing many of the classics and know the lyrics to all the songs.
Rachel and Lynette’s friendship has grown and strengthened since their time at Butterflies. They share interests, enjoy similar activities and love having a friend to share their feeling with and many memories.
