A day in the life at Estia | The King Lives
Staff and residents from Estia Mount Coolum recently had a chance to dust-off their blue suede shoes and rock and roll to Elvis classics.
‘We’re always looking for fun new things to do with our residents.’ – said Krupa Shah, the home’s Lifestyle Coordinator.
‘We have a few die-hard Elvis fans amongst the residents and the staff, so when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s birthday came around, we decided to turn it into a big celebration.’ – explained Krupa.
With golden mics in hand and gem encrusted jackets donned – everyone looked the part for the day.
The home was enthusiastically prepared for the big occasion with the residents’ own creations.
‘Today we are not in Mt Coolum, today we are in Memphis!’ – said resident Bob when taking in the new ambience of the home.
Everyone had a chance to make their moves on the dance floor and sing along to a high energy performance from John Borovich – a local entertainer who ensured everyone’s favourites were played on the day. Happy hour and Elvis Trivia followed the concert – giving everyone the chance to demonstrate their knowledge.
‘It was such a fantastic day’ – added Krupa. ‘The residents loved the performances and were all singing along.’
Following the success of the event, the lifestyle team is already planning their next celebration in honour of The Beatles - so stay tuned!
