It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Lurnea! Afford’s Lurnea Day Program has such a strong community spirit. With Christmas just around the corner, everyone came together to make the site look extra special to spread the Christmas spirit.

Work Together as a Team

First on the agenda was setting up the Christmas tree. All the clients helped staff get the Christmas tree and decorations out of storage. Everyone worked together to choose the perfect place to set it up.

Next were all the decorations! Colour, sparkles, quirky little decorations and loads of tinsel were delicately put on the tree to make it shine. The Christmas tree at Lurnea now greets everyone who walks through the front door. Other decorations and Christmas art have been put up around the site, making it pop with colour and fun. Every client is proud to say that they contributed in spreading the Christmas joy at their site.

Celebrate With Friends

After the Christmas tree was set up, the team played Christmas music and sang and danced to celebrate the start of the festive season. It was then time to finish off Christmas wish lists with support from Lifestyle Assistants!

Explore More of the World Around You

Out and about in the community, Lucas, Rajiv, Cameron, and Rikki, along with Afford Lifestyle Assistant, Tracy, headed to Christmas World to see what other magical Christmas themed fun could be found. As soon as they walked through the door, they were blown away with Christmas cheer.

There was everything from small baubles and rows of tinsel, through to an enormous inflatable Santa! The highlight of the visit was the oversized classic train that caught the eye of each of the men. A perfect photo opportunity!

Feel Safe to Share Your Feelings

Throughout their visit, the friends spoke about what Christmas means to them, how they celebrate and what they’re hoping will be under the Christmas tree this year.

The Afford community is made up of diverse cultures. Throughout our Day Programs and sites, we celebrate many traditions and cultural events. Christmas is one of those celebrations and every individual is welcome to get involved in the festivities.
