Christmas time at Combrae Home wouldn’t be the same without traditional Christmas baking.

That’s according to the home’s elders, who have been busy baking Christmas truffles, Christmas mince pies and Christmas cakes, explains Coombrae Home recreation officer Lois Strickett.

“For decades many of the elders of Coombrae have baked Christmas treats for their family and friends, and we believe it’s important to carry on the tradition,” says Lois.

“At Coombrae there is a real focus on supporting residents to continue doing the things they love in addition to providing practical support and healthcare.”

Lois says the elders feel great about being able to give back to their family, friends and fellow residents through baking.

“The act of baking is about much more than creating something to eat. It’s a great social occasion and for many it sparks memories and the elders share stories about what they would make at home or what their mothers used to make.”
