Arcare Hillside’s 20th Birthday

In November, the Arcare Hillside community celebrated the residence’s 20th birthday.

Arcare Hillside opened in October 2000 and was Arcare’s third Victorian aged care residence. When Arcare Hillside first opened, it looked a little different than it does today. In 2018, the Arcare Hillside community received a 5-Star renovation, with all works being completed in November 2018.

To mark the milestone birthday, the Hillside lifestyle team organised an intimate community party. The team beautifully decorated the residence for occasion, centring their colour scheme around Arcare’s signature colours of Purple and Silver, and especially arranged a luxurious purple cake for the occasion.

During the celebrations, residents enjoyed live virtual entertainment, fun games and a variety of finger food.

The community gathered around (albeit socially distanced of course) to sing Happy Birthday to the beloved residence, and watch on as longest serving team member of 19 years, Naz Halls, assisted residents and residence manager, Marija to cut the beautiful cake.

We would like to wish the Arcare Hillside community a very Happy 20th Birthday!
