Lacey continues to bring so much cheer to the residents and staff at Monash Health’s adult psychiatric rehabilitation facility at the Doveton Community Care Unit.

Lacey lives onsite permanently at this facility and is known to approach resident’s with a ball in her mouth, ready to play fetch, or simply sit at their feet and provide them with comfort and companionship, which is especially important at this time of year!

Lacey plans to do some special visits to other patients across the mental health service to help spread some Christmas cheer!

Ross Diaco never imagined that 'songwriter' would be on his list of life accomplishments. But after battling cancer three times he was inspired to help others through music and lyrics.

"Even if these words help just one other person, it's worthwhile. After everything I've been through, I just want to help others facing challenging times" Ross explains.

Ross’ song called Amazing Comeback was recorded by talented singer Joyce Prescher. Ross credits his resilience to his family, including his wife of 43 years Sheryl Diaco, and the incredible team of Monash Health doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who have cared for him since 2014.

Kingston Concert Hall rang to the sounds of traditional Christmas carols last Tuesday when residents, family and staff joined Oakleigh Brass Band, The Rubies and Kingston Choir to celebrate.

Everyone enjoyed a free BBQ provided by the Rapid Relief Team charity and came together to sing their favourite Christmas carols in the Kingston Concert Hall, which has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland!

Santa Claus came to visit, and all the children lined up for photos and a bag of sweet treats!

Thank you to MC David Moyle and the organising committee led by Jakqui Barnfield, Operations Director, who dedicated their time and effort to bring joy to Kingston and its extended family.
