On Tuesday 28th April, Arcare Surrey Hills client, Bernice celebrated her 89th birthday.
Although this year’s celebrations were a little different, the Surrey Hills lifestyle team tried to go above and beyond to make the day feel special for Bernice.
The community hosted a special high tea in honour of Bernice’s birthday, where some of her closest friends from the community attended. It was there that the team also presented Bernice with a delicious cake, presents, flowers and a handwritten card.
As a special treat, Bernice’s daughter also dropped off some her favourite cupcakes to accompany the decadent high tea afternoon.
The Arcare Surrey Hills community would like to wish Bernice a very Happy Birthday and Happy Returns!
