COVID-19 unfortunately put a holt on the Arcare Templestowe community’s bus outings for a number of months, however recently the community has resumed taking clients out on scenic bus drives.
Although the scenic bus drive still aren’t what the outings used to be, the clients have been enjoying being able to go out, get some fresh air and see the sights from the safety of the bus.
On Monday 26th June, a small group of clients ventured out on a scenic bus drive to tour around the Templestowe and Doncaster areas. Due to the high demand, the lifestyle team ran two scenic bus tours across the day. During one of the scenic tours, the group made excellent use of their time out, choosing to stop by Pauline’s daughter house, which was a great surprise.
