Enliven’s Cashmere Home in Johnsonville was transformed into a 1920s theatre recently for the home’s very own midwinter cabaret show.
A professional cabaret performer who goes by the stage name SheShe Velour used a mixture of music, dance and drama to entertain the residents of Cashmere Home and sister-site Cashmere Heights Home, along with their friends and family.
Cashmere Home recreation officer Liz Rivadelo says the performer used a range of props and had multiple costume changes during the show.
“We’ve had SheShe Velour visit once before and the residents absolutely loved her. They wouldn’t stop talking about it so we hired her again and turned it into a big event,” says Liz.
Residents and staff decorated the home and dressed up in the 1920s theme to make the evening even more special.
“It was just like they were going out to a show. It’s the kind of thing they would have done when they were younger,” Liz explains.
“We had a terrific turnout. Almost the whole home came along and dressed up for the show – along with a few family members.”
Cashmere Home and sister-site Cashmere Heights Home are both operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provide rest home, hospital, respite and health recovery care from Helston Road in Johnsonville.
