Aged Care Narratives » Dressing up as iconic movie characters at Parkinson
May 29, 2020
Written by Jamie Loh
Our dress up fun continued at Arcare Parkinson today with many clients and team members dressing up as iconic movie characters.
From Sister Act, Men in Black to I Dream of Jeannie and Pikachu, the residence was transformed into a busy movie studio with famous characters walking around.
‘There are so many characters to look at, I can barely keep up!’ a client commented.
A few team members came to work dressed as nuns so the clients were inspired to watch the comedy show Sister Act.
The clients are really enjoying our dress up days and they look forward to each week to see what costumes and props the team members come up with.
‘I wonder if I should get their autograph, it was my favourite movie when I was younger,’ a client shared.
