Aged Care Narratives » Celebrating diversity at Arcare Parkinson’s Harmony Day
March 25, 2020
Written by Jamie Loh
In early March, team members and clients at Arcare Parkinson celebrated Harmony Day with a variety of multicultural activities.
Together, they ate interesting food, shared stories and watched movies from different countries – all with English subtitles of course!
The clients thoroughly enjoyed seeing the National Costumes of different cultures that was on display in the residence front foyer.
The foyer was also decorated with world flags and souvenirs to represent the diverse cultures and backgrounds in Australia and in Arcare Parkinson.
We are very fortunate to be in a culturally diverse society that celebrates multiculturalism.
Coming from all walks of life, clients and team members at Arcare Parkinson bond over their differences and share in their life experiences.
