What's On

Our Riverview Lifestyle team are onsite 7 days a week and strive to deliver a program of activities that enhance our residents’ physical health, mental wellbeing and social engagement.
Providing them with a sense of purpose, and something to look forward to..


Our program is based on our residents’ hobbies and interests and includes both group and one-to-one activities.

We also work collaboratively with other community groups to deliver fun and engaging activities for our residents, including “Moving and Grooving” on Mondays morning during school term, where we host a local playgroup and residents enjoy joining in activities with children.

Regular activities include:

  • Bingo
  • Book Reading
  • Chapel (Wednesday mornings)
  • Afternoon tea with Pastor
  • Craft
  • Singing
  • Pamper time
  • Exercises
  • Happy Hour
  • Songs of Praise
  • Trivia
  • Kaesler Cafe

We also plan a wide range of other special activities and are often privileged to host a wide range of special guests.

Volunteers also play an important role in the delivery of our Leisure and Lifestyle program with members of our community sharing their special talents, such as singing, piano playing, cooking, gardening etc.

Caring Canine Companions

On the first Monday of every month residents recieve a visit from some furry friends as a part of the Caring Canine Companions, Community Visitors Scheme. The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a national program funded by the Commonwealth Government. The CVS aims to enrich the quality of life of residents in aged care facilities. Our residents enjoy the quality time spent with the dogs and get many pats and cuddles in.
