THE accolades are flowing for Domain Coffs Harbour after the parent aged care group Domain Principal held its inaugural Best Practice Awards.

Domain Coffs Harbour shared victory in the Lifestyle Program of the Year category with Domain Gladstone.

Both offer lifestyle programs that go further than a schedule of daytime activities and touching examples are cited by residents in both homes.

At Domain Coffs Harbour tLifestyle co-ordinator Susan Darlington said there is always something for everyone to do regardless of their mobility or health.

Some of the programs include Men's Club luncheons which usually include a snag or a steak and, of course, a beer.

The novel book club which meets monthly and there is the needles and pins club and the Ladies Club luncheons with the focus on fine dining and getting dressed up.

"In addition Domain Coffs Harbour provides a buddy program to help new residents settle into their new home and take them along to some of the activities," Ms Darlington said

"The lifestyle team regularly receive positive feedback and a recent comment about how inspirational the program is from the Accreditation Agency made the staff particularly proud.

"We know our programs are a success when residents arrive an hour early to wait for the program or when they have to choose between activities running at the same time and don't know which to choose."
