Everyone loves a craft market! There’s always loads of things to see and do and the chance to chat with some of the artists face to face.

Residents from Afford’s Butterflies home recently visited the Emu Craft Market at the Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School with their Lifestyle Assistants Homa, Tamali and Caterina.

Do The Things You Love

Mia, Lynette and Scharni love to get out and about and you can often find them visiting markets, shops, local events and enjoying the outdoors at a park near to their home.

But today’s visit to the craft market was all about the craft! Lynette was right in her element. She browsed the many stalls and loved talking to the stallholders and asking questions.

Be Independent

There were beautiful dolls for Lynette to hold, clothing to browse and lots of sweet-smelling soaps and lotions to try. But the Christmas decorations were the ones that caught Lynette’s eye. She purchased two lovely Christmas ornaments to put up on the tree at her home. Lynette also bought a butterfly hairclip. A beautiful accessory for a beautiful lady who is proud to be a butterfly!

After looking through all the stalls and making their purchases, the ladies stopped for a healthy lunch at a picnic table outside. The sun was shining, the weather was fine, what more could you want?

Friends That Share Your Interests

The ladies love spending time together and encourage each other to live life to the full. The day was a wonderful opportunity for the ladies to appreciate the workmanship of the art and pieces that were on display. It gave them a chance to develop their skills and confidence in talking to others in a new setting. Most importantly, it gave them a chance to enjoy an activity that they all love as friends.

When you join an Afford home, you are welcomed by friends, who quickly become family. Afford makes every effort to match housemates who share similar interests and life goals.

For the Butterflies ladies, they make the most of every day with support from Afford Lifestyle Assistants. Their friendship has grown during their time together and they have many memories to cherish for years to come.
