Singleton Mercy Aged Care Opens McMercy Ice Creamery


Many of the residents of the Singleton Mercy Aged Care have enjoyed their first ‘McMercy’ ice cream.



On Monday, May 20, something new and wonderful took place at Mercy Aged Care in Singleton. After many visits to the local McDonalds to treat themselves to the classic ‘50c soft serve cone’, staff at Mercy Aged Care decided that they needed a soft serve machine of their own.


After discussing the idea with the residents, the idea took off. The stall was constructed, decorated and put in place for all to see.


“The looks on the residents’ faces as the front of the shop was being painted and decorated were just priceless” said the facility service manager, Leesa Bigham. “They haven’t stopped smiling,” added Leesa.
