Louise’s social calendar

Louise has only just moved to Arcare Knox and is already settling in well.

She has been adding to her social calendar, trying out a range of programs including art class, high tea, regular coffee clubs and gardening.

Louise has always been a keen gardener and picked the perfect spot in the courtyard to start planting her flowers at Arcare.

Louise said, ‘Before moving here, you could always find me in the garden.’

A recent trip to Bunnings saw Louise teaching the lifestyle team and other residents about the different types of flowers and plants that were for sale.

Lifestyle team member Rebecca said, ‘We did’t need a Bunnings staff member to teach us anything – Louise knew it all!’

Louise has become a regular on the social bus outings; most recently heading off to the Mulgrave Country Club where she enjoyed a lambs fry and bacon.

Louise says she wasn’t sure what to expect when moving to Arcare Knox, but she is very happy she did make the move.

Maintaining her active lifestyle was important to Louise and she is pleased to be able to continue with this at Arcare.

Beyond the social calendar, Louise is enjoying making new friends in the community.

‘I cannot get over how nice everyone is. Everyone is always so friendly and happy to see me” Louise.
