St Vincent's Yennora Aged Care

On Friday the staff and residents were enlightened to celebrate Diwali for the first time ever in the facility, we were blessed with the presence of Charollette, Brandon and our facility manager all in beautiful saris. We started the day with a religious Hindu ceremony where all our staff had a chance to put on a tikka. The day was continued with lots of music and dancing, our residents and staff just could not stay on their seat. - Bibi from Yennora
