Aged Care Narratives » Window of love

Written by Rachel Bailey
On Friday 15th May, a group of ladies from the Arcare Reservoir community sat down to make hearts for the residence’s Window of Love project.
The window of love project involves clients making hearts and writing positive and encouraging messages on them, before they are displayed on the front windows of the residence for passersby to see.
This project has not only helped brighten the spirits of those in the wider community, but the messages have also brought a tight-knit sense of community inside the residence, as now more than ever, clients and team members are leaning on each other for support, encouragement and joy.
