From wine and beer to fresh fruit punch, clients at Arcare Helensvale enjoyed a myriad of 5-star refreshments at Arcare Helensvale.
On a sunny winter day, Lifestyle Co-ordinator Kate and Café Attendant Cheryl donned colourful party hats and face masks to make their way around the residence with their one-of-a-kind refreshments trolley.
Clients enjoyed sipping on their alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, all from the comforts of their own suites during the precautionary lockdown.
Kate had concocted the fresh fruit punch with her very own secret recipe.
The clients especially liked the fresh strawberries, blueberries, limes, oranges and mint leaves, with many commenting that it was so refreshing!
Delivering the refreshments was also a great opportunity to have 1-on-1 chats with the clients and to check in with everyone on how they were feeling.
At Arcare Helensvale, we are very aware of the mental and emotional issues that may arise during these challenging times.
And we hope to make things easier for them through the little things that we do.
Whether it is a smile or a chat, it means the world to the clients to know that we are here for them.
