Virtual Engagement Recreation Activity (VERA)

Virtual Engagement Recreation Activity (VERA) is a new program offered through our Social Support Group team at Kerrabee.

VERA is series of interactive fun, social and wellbeing group programs conducted online via Microsoft Teams (similar to Zoom and Skype). The program has been designed to include everyone, from people who use a computer or tablet with confidence through to people who have absolutely no experience.   

Programs run through VERA include:

  • exercise, meditation, mindfulness, health and wellbeing
  • craft (supplies provided)
  • guest speakers 
  • entertainers
  • word games, puzzles, bingo and brain teasers
  • cooking together on-line
  • tours of local places of interest (eg art exhibitions)
  • conversations and friendship
  • learning skills to open up a world of new possibilities
