Aged Care Relationships » A little something to brighten Marie’s day at Arcare Glenhaven

Written by Jamie Loh
Marie at Arcare Glenhaven recently received a special care package from her family who wanted to do something to brighten up her day.
They know that Marie has been missing them lately so they surprised her with something that would no doubt bring a smile to her face.
Marie loves the colour purple and butterflies so the family sent a large butterfly balloon and two large purple and pink love hearts.
Marie was so happy when she got them and she could not wait to display them in her room.
‘I feel so special and very loved by my family, they are very sweet for sending me these special balloons!’ she shared with us.
The team members at Glenhaven thought it was such a great idea from the family to send through the balloons as it has such a joyous effect on people, not only those receiving them but everyone who gets to look at them.
