High tea

A popular activity at Arcare Templestowe is the community’s weekly High Tea.

Despite the precautionary lockdown that is currently in place, the Arcare Templestowe community have still been able to enjoy their weekly high tea.

Now held in the dining room, the lifestyle team set out the room to maximise participation, while ensuring that social distancing measures are being practiced.

On Wednesday 8th April, clients attended the high tea and were treated to tea, coffee, an assortment of cakes and of course, scones with jam and cream.

However the clients don’t just attend the high tea for the 5-star food, many take advantage of the opportunity to socialise and meet new people from within the community. Tea and coffee were served on traditional China sets, which was a talking point for many within the room.
