The lovely Judy Wilson recently celebrated her 90th birthday in the community of Arcare Helensvale with friends, laughter and fun.
On the day of her birthday, her good friends took her out for lunch at a nice restaurant.
And when she returned, Personal Support Worker Debbie had a surprise for her.
Debbie had arranged for Judy’s closest friends in our Arcare Helensvale community to get together in the dining room.
Once she had arrived, they all sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her and enjoyed a beautiful birthday cake together.
Well-loved among her friends, Judy’s suite was also filled with fragrant flowers, which she kindly asked to be shared with the other clients in her community.
‘I just want everyone to share in the joy of my birthday celebration,’ she said.
Always looking on the bright side of things, Judy is a wonderful woman who is sociable and makes friends very easily wherever she goes.
From all of us at Arcare Helensvale, Happy birthday Judy!
