Rosedurnate Residents

Welcome to the website created by some of the residents who live at the Rosedurnate aged care facility in the beautiful town of Parkes, N.S.W., Australia.

Our mission on this website is to show other aged care residents how much fun we are having, with our computers - and to inspire others to do the same. Some of us play games, others are compiling their family history stories, and we have included the links to both the games and the genealogy, on our individual sites below.

Recently we obtained two computers [now four!] and set out to see if the residents would be interested in learning how to use a computer. We had no special skills, no background in computers, and an average age of 82 years! Only our 'teacher' - also a resident - had previous experience, so if WE can do it, you can,too.

Click on the names below, to learn a little about each one of us, and our accomplishments on the computer. We hope our experiences will encourage you, to 'Have A Go!"
