The Apia Easter Hunt is an opportunity for children from around the greater Logan area to participate in a free hunt for hundreds of chocolate eggs that will be hidden around Tall Trees.
In addition to the hunt, there will be a number of door prizes, a photo competition, a sausage sizzle, refreshments and other surprises throughout the day.
Tall Trees director Phil Usher says the Apia Easter Hunt is an initiative primarily to encourage interaction between generations.
“We have always welcomed guests of all ages to visit friends and family, and this event in particular encourages the young and old alike to get involved with the Easter spirit,” Mr Usher says.
“One of the most important things about delivering a high-quality aged care service is ensuring that there is no sense of disconnect or separation from the public.
“We see activities such as this as a great way to ensure quality ongoing relationships are built and maintained with the local community.
“Not only this, but it’s a great way for us to give something back to people in the local area while having some fun in the process.”
Part of the new guard of accommodation for seniors, Tall Trees aims to provide customised care services for their residents whilst offering an environment that’s more like a village than an aged care facility.
Mr Usher says there has been considerable interest in the event from local businesses and organisations.
“This has been a fairly big undertaking for us, and the support from the community has really been instrumental in helping to get it off the ground,” he says.
“Both My Fitness Studio and White Lady Funerals have been outstanding in their assistance they’ve given us for this event—we couldn’t do this without them.
“Additionally, we’ll be getting help on the day from both the Logan Ladies Business Lions and Logan Women clubs, who’ll be serving up some barbequed meals as well as selling hot drinks.
“Places to this are going to fill up quickly, so we’d encourage anyone that’s interested to book their spot as soon as possible.”
The Apia Easter Hunt at Tall Trees will run across three one-hour sessions on Saturday 16 April.
The sessions start at 9:30am, 11:00am and 12:30pm, with each having a maximum capacity of 20 children.
