Aged Care Narratives » Two reasons to celebrate at Arcare North Shore’s high tea

It is that time of the year again, where love is blossoming and old romances reignite.
For Arcare North Shore , love was accompanied by a celebration of food, all thanks to our very talented chef.
The Valentine’s Day High Tea was something no one could miss out on as there was an array of chocolates, profiteroles, creampuffs and more!
‘Oh, this food is good! I should be watching what I eat but I’m looking at all of it and it just looks so good!’ client Eileen Sondergeld said.
These were the absolutely scrumptious delights available for everyone to taste.
‘This profiterole is absolutely divine!’ client Jeff Walker commented.
As the clients chatted amongst themselves, they began reminiscing on old romances and laughing fondly over the good old days.
Two particular clients, Edna and Roy Davis, had another special reason to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Edna’s birthday is actually on Valentine’s Day itself!
Roy jokingly shared, ‘That is why I married her, I only have to get her the one present then!’
The foyer erupted in laughter as everyone cheered and laughed, much to Edna’s embarrassment.
However, she quickly laughed it off and delved back into the wonderful buffet of flavours on offer.
It was a great day chatting with good friends and getting to know each other better.
Arcare North Shore wishes everyone a Happy Valentine’s day and a Happy Birthday for Edna Davis!
