Season’s Greetings from Oryx Communities

“The best part about this time of year is the memories we make”


The spirit of giving and joy resonates throughout our aged care homes at The Richardson in West Perth and The Queenslea in Claremont this festive season. Christmas is a time of warmth, celebration, and community, and at Oryx, we embrace this season with a myriad of activities and volunteer opportunities, beautifully orchestrated by our dedicated lifestyle team.


At both The Richardson and The Queenslea, Christmas isn’t just a day on the calendar; it’s a festive season filled with joy, laughter, and shared experiences. Our aged care lifestyle team, at the heart of our festive planning, curates a range of activities that cater to the interests and abilities of all residents. From traditional carol singing to creative craft sessions for making Christmas decorations, every activity is designed to ignite the festive spirit and foster a sense of community.

Special Events: A Time for Togetherness

The highlight of our Christmas festivities are the special events hosted at each of our aged care residences – these events, ranging from festive lunches to themed entertainment, are the pinnacle of our holiday celebrations. Our team and residents come together, often with residents’ family members, to revel in the festive cheer, creating memories that last well beyond the season.

Keeping Traditions Alive

Understanding the importance of family during Christmas, Oryx ensures that the bond between residents and their loved ones is celebrated. We facilitate video calls for those who can’t be together physically, and organise special family-friendly events where relatives are welcomed into our homes. This inclusive approach ensures that no one misses out on the warmth and joy of family traditions throughout the year.

The Christmas season for our aged care residents is more than just a celebration; it’s a reflection of our community’s heart and spirit. We not only celebrate within our walls but also extend our hands in generosity to the wider community. In this season of giving, we are reminded of the joy that comes from sharing, togetherness, and the power of a community that embraces the festive spirit wholeheartedly.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Festive Season and a safe and Happy New Year.
