Aloha! From Taigum

Customers of Multicap’s Supported Independent Living home in Taigum recently hosted a special ‘Hawaiian’ style family night. 


Every three months, customers have a family night where they invite over their loved ones to enjoy a night of food and fun. Customers are responsible for choosing the theme and staff research what kind of food to prepare and plan decorations. The customers are actively involved in all stages of these special nights, including planning, sending invitations and decorating the dining area. 

“The staff at Taigum don’t do boring and we love watching our customers' faces light up when we have family nights,” says Taigum Service Leader Dee.

Taigum’s family nights have become so popular, some families bring along extended family members to join in the fun. Dee is proud of how much these nights mean to both customers and their families. 

“They want to know how their family member is being looked after, where they live and how they are thriving. All customers love it when their extended families come. This is one of the highlights that everyone looks forward to. We as staff believe that sitting around a table to have dinner should be made fun not just for the customer but for their families as well.”

The family nights ensure customers can experience the freedom of living independently without losing the close bond they have with their immediate and extended family. Multicap’s unique approach to Supported Independent Living ensures that our customers have every opportunity to live the life they choose. We take the time to understand the needs and goals of each individual, so we can create a sustainable circle of support. For more information on Supported Independent Living, call 1300 135 886 or send us an enquiry here
