Arcare Taigum’s First Birthday

The celebrations started for Arcare Taigum’s first birthday with the Lifestyle Team decorating the staff room, lounge rooms and administration.

Staff gathered for morning tea celebrations with our residence manager Janelle giving a speech and cutting the cake.

Staff reminisced about the last 12 months and their most memorable moments.

Following the morning tea, residents gathered in the lounge for a party games morning.

Residents played pass the parcel and when the music stopped the resident holding the parcel got a small prize and had to answer a question.

Residents stated that the party games brought back memories from growing up and from their own children’s parties.

Beris won the prize of a word search book and pen.

Beris said, ‘did you know I love doing these!’ but it was just the luck of the draw that we played her favourite game.

The next game the residents enjoyed was pin the cherry on the ice cream.

Residents were blind folded and given a cherry to place on the board.

Gil was the closest and won a great prize.

The party games were followed by a passionate rendition of “Happy Birthday”.
