Arcare Aged Care Community Stories – April 6 to April 12
April 6 – Arcare Slacks Creek – Easter messages
The wonderful team members in our Arcare Slacks Creek Kensington community worked tirelessly over the weekend to decorate the lounge and dining area.
The clients created little Easter themed signs to write a message to their loved ones. The team members then took a photo of each client with their sign to send to their families.
And what better way to brighten up the dining room than with all these beautiful smiling faces!
April 6 – Arcare Taigum – Helping Ken and Jo stay connected
The Lifestyle team at Arcare Taigum has been assisting many clients with keeping connected to their loved ones. One of these calls today was between husband and wife Ken and Jo at the residence. It was great for them to be able to chat while one of them is in precautionary isolation.

April 7 – Arcare Parkwood – Pre-dinner drinks

April 9 – Arcare North Shore – Trolley full of treats for Easter
The tastes of tropical North Queensland dazzled the clients at Arcare North Shore today as team members delivered sweet but healthy treats (not including the chocolate)!
They were all very impressed with the dedication and presentation of the trolley, done by our lovely Lifestyle Assistant Andrea. The fruit was bursting with flavour and it was a great way to enjoy the warm afternoon.
