Aged Care Narratives » Arcare Parkinson’s day of Where’s Wally?
April 22, 2020
Written by Jamie Loh
Team members and clients at Arcare Parkinson dressed up for today’s ‘Where’s Wally?’ theme.
The dress-up theme days are intended to bring smiles to people’s faces and to have a bit of fun during the preventative lockdown period.
And wearing our red and white striped tops with our black-rimmed glasses, we all certainly achieved that while looking the part!
As we went around the residence, we were surprised to learn that most of the clients had never heard of Wally and were interested in knowing more!
So, the Lifestyle team made plans to show them the Where’s Wally books where you try to find him amidst an array of colourful distractions.
To make our Where’s Wally day even more interesting, team member Matthew printed off some miniature versions of Wally and hid them around the residence.
This was a great way to get the clients moving about as they had to venture around to find him in different nooks and crannies.
Try and spot us hiding in the garden!
