At Regis Aged Care, a home is where residents feel comfortable living in a community devoted to their health and wellbeing.
Regis Aged Care Homes are filled with people who will go out of their way to make residents feel welcome and happy.
From gardening to games, poetry to painting, nothing is too much for the team at Regis.
As well as making residents feel at home within the residence, Regis ensures they stay active with hobbies and interests that will keep them engaged.
"Home means familiar, it's a place to be yourself." These are the words from Drazu and Tahu, residents of Regis Greenbank in Queensland.
They acknowledge the importance of keeping active and carrying out home tasks they would normally be performing in their own homes and countries.
Gardening for them provides them with the perfect opportunity to stay active while doing tasks to help and benefit others.
Both Drazu and Tahu are passionate garden enthusiasts and are always tending to the fruits and vegetables in the gardens at the home.
Drazu is originally from Serbia, and he shared with the team that they tend to use a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in their cooking.
With abundant vegetables grown in the gardens, his passion is looking after his cherry tomatoes and he's always looking to add them to pasta and salads.
"Nothing's better than a fresh tomato," said Drazu.
Tahu, formerly from New Zealand, told the team that he loves a good beef stew and "enjoys fruits and vegetables that will satisfy his tummy".
His precious vegetables in the garden are his lettuce heads, which he is tending to affectionately so they look luscious and green as they grow.
The gardening duo are planning on planting a selection of carrots and beans for their next venture which the whole home is now looking forward to.
