RESIDENTS at the Akooramak Care for Older Persons in Warwick have had the Jumpers and Jazz festival brought to them thanks to the efforts of Direct Care worker Chris Cave.

Ms Cave worked tirelessly to bring the Akooramak living areas to life with their own tree jumper display.

Many of the residents are not able to leave the aged-care facilities and miss out on seeing the popular main street creations.

Thanks to Ms Cave and the staff at Akooramak the residents don't have to feel like they miss out with so many wonderful creations both inside and outside the centre.

Keen jumpers and jazz residents like Gean Leah created their own artwork to add to the decorations.

Knitting can be a difficult task for some of the residents, so a variety of arts and craftwork have been used to bring the J&J charm to them.
