Aloha! Welcome to Arcare North Lakes’ armchair travel where we tour the globe for interesting and unique cultures and experiences. This week we stopped in Hawaii for a lei and some pineapple juice while relaxing on the famous Waikiki beach.
‘I’ve never been to Hawaii before but I am so happy to be able to see it on the screen! And all from the comfort of the lounge,’ a client commented.
To make the experience even more realistic and authentic, the Lifestyle team presented the clients with colourful leis to wear around their neck and placed Hawaiian props near the TV.
The clients said that this really made them feel like they were traveling to their holiday destination!
Client Alisia said, ‘I had been to Hawaii in my 20s and today’s armchair travel was really nice. It felt good to reminisce about my travels.’
The clients also enjoyed a morning tea where they could sit, unwind and soak in the Hawaiian sun with a nice cuppa.
