On Tuesday 21st May, the Lifestyle team at Arcare Taigum organised an afternoon tea to say thank our wonderful volunteers.
The kitchen team also chipped in by supplying the afternoon tea with delicious food and drinks.
Once everyone had arrived in the Arcare Taigum’s Private Dining Room, the Lifestyle team gave a speech.
They thanked the volunteers for giving their time to help the Lifestyle team and most importantly, form real friendships with the clients.
The Lifestyle team said that there are so many benefits that the volunteers bring to everyone at the residence.
Each volunteer was presented with a certificate and a badge. They were also given a thyme plant to thank them for their ‘thyme’.
Volunteers spent the afternoon getting to know one another and talking about what they do when they visit the residence.
All the volunteers said they were honoured by the afternoon tea and enjoy coming to Taigum to volunteer.
Tshering thanked the lifestyle staff for giving her the opportunity to be a part of Taigum volunteering.
She said that everything she has learnt and experienced here, she will take back to her home in Bhutan and help to shape the aged care system there.
Tshering will head home late June and we want to wish her all the best and will miss her volunteering days with us at Arcare Taigum.
