It has been 2 years since Caroline moved from New South Wales to Perth and she has been a client of Crosslinks since the start of 2019. Caroline lives in Mundaring with her Mum, her sister, niece and nephew, and brother-in-law, and most importantly her black cat Tilly. Caroline enjoys keeping fit and regularly attends the gym, where she is an active participant in yoga, Pilates, aqua aerobics, and belly dancing. She has made friends with other ladies her age who attend these classes.
Caroline loves shopping and as she lives close to the shops, she does her own grocery and personal shopping on a Saturday morning before it becomes too busy. She takes her shopping buggy, so does not have to carry heavy items home. Caroline does not fully understand money but uses her card. The staff in the local shops know her and are friendly and helpful. Caroline also attends Mundaring Sharing. She enjoys the art class where she does water colour painting. Caroline also conducts card making classes at Mundaring Sharing. She enjoys teaching and her classes are happy. Caroline likes making cards and sending them to friends and family and also selling them. Caroline loves dancing and with Crosslink support attends a dance class for the intellectually disabled at Bassendean on Thursday nights from 6:45 pm until 9 pm – dancing and social time.
Caroline is a keen Ten Pin Bowler and goes to league bowling on Sunday mornings, then it is the scrapbooking group on Sunday afternoons. Thursday is patchwork and craft group day, Caroline enjoys sewing and has made some quilts. The RAP program is very important to Caroline, she loves going out on Friday evening and to the Saturday discos. She is looking forward to going to Cats The Musical and to the overnight camp later in the year. Caroline has Crosslink support on Fridays and looks forward to these days, cooking, or seeing a movie, or just a day out and about. Caroline has just visited Monkey Mia and was very lucky to be one of the people chosen to feed the dolphin. An exciting experience for her 41st birthday.
