maltatoday | SUNDAY • 23 OCTOBER 2022 2 ELDERLY CARE THE Imperial and Casa Antonia both operat- ed by St George's Care Ltd, are synonymous with quality care and homes that genuinely care for their residents. The care homes support independent life and active aging among a plethora of excel- lent geriatric services. We strongly believe that life does not come to halt when one moves into a care home, indeed, we pro- mote the opposite. Residents moving into our care homes are given the opportunity to 'Live the life they choose'. Our dedicated activity organisers create an enjoyable and varied daily program of regular activities. We encourage and offer an active social life and events program which we believe provides companionship and opportunity to stimulate body and mind. In addition to the popular weekly fa- vorites like bingo, mass, live music, cinema nights and crafts we also include cultural excursions and wine tasting events. We value bringing the outside world into our care homes and to link our residents with the local community. We recently in- vited the Hamrun Spartans Football Club to come and show their skills and chal- lenge a few of our residents to a one-to-one play off. Teatru Salesjan performs weekly rehearsals at the Imperial which residents can attend giving them an opportunity to see some 'behind the stage work' as well. The Malta Cultural Institute hosts monthly concerts at the Imperial allowing our resi- dents the opportunity to see a varied pro- gram of performing arts. The Ibstock Place School Singers UK performed at The Impe- rial in October. We work with the Malta Dementia Society who hosts Dancing to Dementia sessions, a new initiative to promote communication with residents living with dementia. We believe that no matter your age, sports and fitness activities should be encouraged on a regular basis. An active body hosts a healthy mind and spirit. We provide weekly yoga and meditation sessions, aquarobics, chair pilates and keep fit exercise classes. Residents are encouraged not only to par- take in activities but also to present them. For Pink October we hosted a bake sale on 21 October with residents manning the stalls and helping to raise funds for this worthy cause. On a weekly basis, we have residents leading exercise groups and in- formative sessions talking about past mem- ories and experiences. In November we will be hosting an art exhibition displaying works by Perit Joseph Ellul Vincenti and his wife Margaret Ellul Vincenti which will be open to the public for viewing. Our two-decade-long experience and ex- pertise ensures that residents can enjoy high standards and genuine dedication from carers while staying in charge of their lives for the longest time possible, as they enjoy their blissful golden age.
