Robert moved to New Haven Farm Home in September last year. He has an abundance of skills, is kind and has a great sense of humour. We are happy to share just some of Robert’s talents and goals with you.
Robert enjoys going to Riverstone Men’s Shed each week to meet with other men from the community and work on a range of woodwork projects. This year Robert has made a set of coasters and a cheese-board. On his way to Men’s Shed, Robert visits the team at Aus Timber in Box Hill where he gathers some timber to donate to the Men’s Shed group. Donating the timber to Men’s Shed gives Robert a sense of pride and dignity as a contributing group member.
On Tuesday nights, Robert takes a pottery class with Blacktown Arts and Craft Group where he is learning new skills in working with clay and socialising with other people who share his interests.
Robert is being supported to develop his cooking skills and often helps preparing dinner and setting the table ready to share a meal with his housemates.
Each week Robert goes to the Active8 gym in Richmond working towards his goal of increased fitness. His favourite workout is on the bike.
Robert supports the Penrith Panthers, loves holdens and motor sports and is interested in the police force. He also bowls as part of a ten pin bowling league in Windsor every Saturday.
