Thursday 19th September the residents and team members of Arcare Glenhaven took part in ‘Talk like a pirate day’ where many got into the spirit of things and dressed up as pirates.
It isn’t often that the residents get to see team members out of uniform so, as you can imagine there were many surprised faces followed by lots of giggles.
The lifestyle team hosted a pirate themed high tea with hot seafood and yummy treats. The residents spent that afternoon practising their best pirate voice which resulted in many laughs.
It was no surprise that everyone’s favourite part of the day was seeing the staff all dressed up, some of the members had really gone all out which made the day.
It was a great day filled with lots of smiles and laughs from both residents, family members coming in for visits and team members.
