A Super Respite Experience

Posted by admin on May 3, 2021



For a day of sun, sand and smiles, Naomi, Peter, Donna and Trudy headed out to Surfers Paradise to see how sand can spectacularly become a work of art.

The group met at Afford’s Benowa Short Term Accommodation, where they enjoy support to get involved in new experiences and take some time to step away from the everyday for rest and relaxation.

Naomi, Peter, Trudy and Donna decided they wanted to visit the Beyond the Sand Arts Festival and discussed this with lifestyle assistants at respite. Together they chose when they wanted to go. They also reviewed the website to research some of the things they could do while at the event.

While at the festival, everyone enjoyed wandering through the amazing sand art sculptures. The sand art was rich with detail and depth.

There were other art installations along the beachfront, which were eye-catching and colourful. Perfect for a few photo opportunities!

Time at respite is all about you. It is about having support to do the things you love and visiting places and events that bring you happiness.

One-one-one support has seen Naomi visit several places during respite. Recently she chose to visit Movie World and the Carrara Markets. With a lifestyle assistant by her side for support, Naomi went on her favourite Movie World rides. She also watched the daily performances and shows and took a picture or two with popular movie characters.

At the Carrara Markets, Naomi browsed the many stalls filled with craft and trinkets. She enjoyed the leisurely stroll after a jam-packed day at Movie World.
