Aged Care Relationships » Paws out for Animal Print day at Glenhaven

Wacky Wednesday at Arcare Glenhaven is getting bigger and bolder with wacky themes and more clients and team members getting involved for Animal Print Day.
Our latest theme was Animal Prints and it was not long before the residence was full of wild animals such as leopards, tigers, zebras, giraffes, snakes and lizards prowling the corridors.
Blending in with their environment, team members dressed up as cheetahs, complete with tails, put their best paws out and posed for photos with clients.
It was great to see many team members getting involved in this week’s theme again.
Client Rudi also took part by wearing his t-shirt with lizard prints on it; it’s not something you see every day!
The clients had a great time laughing at the different outfits and costumes and they enjoyed trying to guess the animal the print belonged to.
And as usual, we look forward to dressing up for next week’s Italian National Day.
