Regis Greenbank – Offering a carefree life

RESIDENTS from local aged care home, Regis Greenbank, adore the charm of fishing and the ability to immerse themselves in the activity.

The seniors at the popular Greenbank home are keen fishermen and shared with the Lifestyle team that they wanted to venture out to Tygum Lagoon in Waterford.

With bait, tackle, rods, and some comfortable chairs packed, a bus load of eager fish enthusiasts hit the road towards the lagoon for a day of fishing amongst friends.

Residents Frank Costello and James Hasler took the lead in showing the Lifestyle team how to line a rod and cast it into the water.

The activity also gave the group a chance to reminisce about past fishing trips and the types of fish they used to catch in their youth.

The team eagerly waited on the side of the lakefront jetty waiting for movement on the line which would herald the nibble of a fish.

Unfortunately for the residents, the fish had other ideas and there was no success in catching anything.

Nonetheless, the day was a huge hit amongst the residents and they especially enjoyed socialising with their friends, eating delicious chocolate cake and sipping on a warm cup of tea.

The team can’t wait for their next fishing adventure and hope they’ll be able to catch some magnificent fish to show off to their fellow residents at the home.

Regis Greenbank GM, Sarah Ford, said the trip to the lake provided a wonderful opportunity for the residents to get out into nature and enjoy the simple things in life.
