A key part of being involved in the community, is taking the time to get to know who is in your community.
Arcare has communities across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, and the members of these communities come from various cultures and countries, from across the world. Whether the person is a client, team member or visitor, it is important that we take the time to recognise, appreciate and celebrate the differences and unique aspects about the various cultures and background that are prevalent within our communities.
By taking the time to get to know the members of our communities, and celebrating their cultures, we are reinforcing the values of community and making everyone feel valued and represented.
In October, the Arcare Maidstone community dedicated a day to celebrate the various cultures and backgrounds of their team members and clients
Team members were encouraged to discuss their life stories and unique cultural with their clients and other team members. Clients particularly enjoyed sharing their family history. Everyone enjoyed learning something new about their fellow community member, particularly about the various delicious delicacies enjoyed by each country; everyone loves some good food.
