Australian Elderly May Lose Bingo Programs

Budget cuts in Australia threaten to end social programs such as card games, Bingo, and exercise for the elderly in nursing homes.

These programs are critical to providing quality of life for the home’s residents. Says one residence manager:

“One of my favourite movies is Groundhog Day. It’s where every day is exactly the same. That’s what would happen in nursing homes without quality of care programs. There’d be no bus trips, there’d be no cards, there’d be no bingo.”
