To celebrate Australia Day at Arcare Helensvale St James, clients, the Lifestyle team and other team members got dressed up and decorated the dining rooms, front foyer and nurses’ stations in blue, red, white, green and yellow.
In the morning, there was a craft group with volunteer Michelle where they weaved paper place-mats in Aussie colours.
There were also Aussie Theme games like passing the beach ball, thong-throwing, and yarns from a Aussie Gentleman and Sheila.
There were lots of laughs and good fun as people were playing the exciting games! Everyone had big smiles on their faces and seemed to be enjoying the activities!
Aussie flags were passed around and everyone waved their flag around patriotically as they sang the National Anthem.
There was a scrumptious BBQ Lunch prepared by catering and everyone got up to get seconds!
Lillian said, “What a wonderful day, lovely to have a nice cold beer with lunch and the curry egg salad was delicious”.
“That was just a lovely lunch. I gave Angie a kiss on the cheek for a job well done”, Margaret also commented.
The full day of activities brought back a lot of memories for the clients and lifted everyone’s spirits.
