Val has always had a close relationship with her eldest daughter, Kerry. ‘We have a similar sense of humour and have a lot of fun together. We laugh at anything,’ Val says.
Kerry lives about 25 minutes from Arcare Hope Island, so she regularly drops by. Val has three other daughters: Sue, Janice and Lyn.
‘Kerry has always been the comic of the family,’ laughs Val, ‘very much like me.’ The pair often go out shopping together and then enjoy lunch at a local café.
A group of men from Arcare communities on the Gold Coast spent an afternoon ticking off items on their bucket list.
Spending a day wandering around the hangars and hitching a ride on a plane was a thrill for the men.
After hearing of the group’s adventures, there are plenty more clients keen to go next time.
