CONNECTING THE YOUNG AND YOUNG AT HEART

At the beginning of 2016, the residents at Twin Parks have been enjoying outings to visit the wonderful children at Kinder Haven Northland, a fantastic kindergarten and child care centre located in Preston, within walking distance to us.

We have also enjoyed regular fortnightly visits from the kindergarten children to our campus.  The children and our residents have been delighting in each other's company, forming new bonds and learning from each other whilst engaging in group activities such as ball games, cooking, music and art.  

We hope to develop our ongoing this relationship with Kinder Haven, and also seek new ways to connect with our neighbourhood.

 

PARTNERSHIP WITH AUSTRALIA'S FUTURE DESIGN INNOVATORS

Twin Parks is pleased to announce that we are participating in an innovative new project with Swinburne University's Centre for Design Innovation.  Students from their Interior Architecture Department are participating in a design studio ‘Design for Dementia’ which will be an investigation of our Residential Service here in Reservoir.  Four areas of focus have been identified for further study.  The students will attend our facility, observe, investigate and then create innovative new designs for the four identified areas.  We are extremely excited at this new relationship, and are keen to both impart the wealth of knowledge and experience we have in offering inspired care to our Residents, and at the same time benefit from the fresh eyes and independent research from the students and faculty at Swinburne.  We look forward to seeing their work and hope to incorporate their designs into our residence in the future!
