Arcare Helensvale had two new residents over the Christmas season!
Both were cheeky, small, moved all over the building and turned up in the most unexpected places.
One was a small black elf and the other a cheeky red elf.
Affectionately known as “Elf on a Shelf”, we held a competition to name the elves.
In the end, the red elf was named Aloysius and the black elf, Percy.
In the first few days of Christmas,the first clients to find the elves would win a prize.
Many clients, visitors and team members had so much fun finding the elf and sometimes, the elves weren’t found for days!
They could have been up in Christmas Trees, in drawers and travelling all around with team members as they made their rounds.
One elf was zipped around on a client’s wheelchair and that brought smiles and laughter to all.
The elves stay from the first of December until Christmas Eve and they disappeared as quickly as they did appear.
Fingers crossed they will return this cheeky Christmas Season!
