C.R.E.W. Event Archives:

Halloween Poster Challenge (October 2021)- This C.R.E.W. initiative brought out the best in  teamwork, creativity, and of course, FUN. Teams were tasked with creating a Halloween inspired poster to hang up in the Heritage Lounge for family members, residents and fellow staff to see and judge for prizes.   

The UHS Night Market (September 2021)- A celebration of diversity and staff engagement through food. Staff were able to sample a variety of foods from different cultures and countries with their colleagues in the courtyard and gardens.

UHS Summer Olympics (July/Aug 2021)- The purpose of this activity was to reinforce the
importance of regular exercise and its positive impact on mental health. Walking outdoors, taking in the fresh air was a definite mood booster and
stress reliever
