Aged Care Narratives » Arcare Home Care’s Brisbane South Social Group

Written by Jamie Loh
Arcare Home Care provides in-home services and social support to the community in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast areas of Queensland.
And every once in a while, we get together for a social catchup over a meal and a cuppa.
‘We try to organise these more often so we can all catch up with one another over a relaxed meal,’ a carer commented.
This time, a small group of us met up and had plenty of great conversations over some great food.
Time flew as we chatted and got to know each other better over the afternoon meal.
We believe that it’s important for the client and carers to form friendships with others in their community.
There’s just something about food that brings many different people from all walks of life together.
‘I really enjoyed myself today. It was great to catch up with friends and meet some new ones,’ a client shared.
Here’s to more social group catchups in this new year!
