Aged Care Narratives » Billiards & Banter

Written by Rachel Bailey
On Wednesday 24th June, the Arcare Templestowe community hosted their first Billiards & Banter group.
The Billiards & Banter group was designed and implemented by the lifestyle team to encourage clients to socialise and bond over their collective love of billiards.
The group, who are currently mostly compromised of men, enjoyed indulging in some beer and chips, as they all got to know one another over a game of pool.
The afternoon activity was greatly enjoyed by all those involved, with many vowing to return for the group’s next meeting.
