Menarock Life Shepparton residents were transported to a world of wonder when magician Dane Williams performed at the aged care facility this week.

The performance was part of the provider’s 10th birthday celebrations.

Client service group manager Ian Thomas said it was a way of bringing fun to the residents.

‘‘A lot of them aren’t able to go out to these sorts of things,’’ he said.

Mr Thomas said the provider had recently undergone a name change to include the word ‘‘life’’ and the magical performance was part of its Live Life program.

‘‘In Live Life we offer activities, recreation and therapeutic programs, including crafts, gardening, board and word games, exercise groups and we have regular outings,’’ he said.

‘‘We also celebrate special events and days such as international days and traditional religious festivals.’’

The Sydney-based magician performed for more than an hour for residents, who interacted with Mr Williams as he pulled items from behind their ears and more.
