Alison’s Story

From her living room in Ettalong, Alison sits and watches the world go by. Her blue armchair is one of her favourite places to be, and not a day goes by that she doesn’t find something interesting to wonder at. Her view, after all, is pretty spectacular, looking out onto the blue waters of Ettalong as well as a bustling footpath and road. Alison loves to be near the water, having lived at Connells Point in Sydney prior to her move to Ettalong over 30 years ago.

At the age of 100, Alison still lives in her own home, receiving regular meal deliveries and attending our Community Restaurant at Woy Woy on a weekly basis, enjoying not only the company of fellow patrons but also the volunteers and staff who run the centre. The raffles and the prizes that go along with that have also been a great hit with this valued client.

The Community Restaurant provides an important social interaction for Alison, who also spends two days a week participating in Integrated Living Zoom activities such as bingo, craft, quizzes and online travel. This wonderful centenarian certainly keeps busy.

By having her meals delivered, Alison knows she doesn’t have to worry about cooking for herself. With her daughter on a separate diet, dinner time is made easier as meals can be heated and served in minutes, saving hassle and bother. Alison counts our pie meals and soups as some of her favourite fare, as they are not only delicious but are the perfect size to suit her smaller appetite.

As well as observing the hustle and bustle of her local community, Alison also loves to watch sport. Golf, tennis and rugby are her favourites, and she says she is ‘so lucky’ to be living a wonderful life.

We are lucky to have you as a client Alison, and we are so glad that we’ve been able to help you out. We look forward to seeing you on a weekly basis and are so glad that our volunteers and staff can bring a smile to your face.
