Celebrating Thelma at Arcare North Lakes

Clients and team members enjoyed a bit of birthday cheer at Arcare North Lakes when we celebrated the birthday of Thelma together.

Thelma’s face lit up with delight when the Lifestyle Team presented her with a gift and took some birthday photos.

Born in Queensland, Australia, Thelma grew up with four siblings and farming with her family was a big part of her childhood.

Her favourite subject at school was Home Economics, therefore some of Thelma’s favourite hobbies are gardening, knitting and sewing.

With two children, four grandchildren and six great grandchildren, family is and has always been a big part of Thelma’s life.

Even though Thelma’s family were unable to celebrate with her at the residence, the Lifestyle Team made sure that Thelma’s family could relive the moment by sending them her birthday photos.

‘Even though we are in a lockdown, we believe it is still important to celebrate the lives of the clients. Being able to celebrate birthdays with them is something that brings all of us joy!’ Lifestyle Assistant Catherine said.
