This month Arcare Glenhaven welcomed in the beginning of their dedicated staffing programme with a cocktail party for all clients, families and Arcare team.
The group was entertained by the charming Guy Walton who is well known amongst the clients for the wonderful concerts he puts on for them. The Arcare team danced with clients and their families as they were served wine and canapes.
One of the clients Paul stood up at the end of the event to thank all of the Acare team members and to say how thankful he was personally to each team member for caring for him and his beautiful wife Teresa.
Paul advised that he wanted to use the cocktail party as an opportunity to express how much he apricates all of the hard work everyone does and that he notices it. Paul even went on to say that the Arcare members are more like family to him than team members.
Everyone that came said they had a wonderful afternoon singing, dancing and eating good food and wine.
As the afternoon set in, one by one the clients made their way to their rooms for an afternoon nap before dinner was to be served.
