A small group of clients from Arcare Parkinson went on a bus outing to visit the nearby Arcare Springwood residence.
The clients at Springwood have been busy practicing for their Christmas Concert.
Every week, they gather together in the Community Room to practice their joyful singing.
The clients from Arcare Parkinson had a great time enjoying melodies and the chats.
And at the end of their choir practice, everyone clapped to applaud them for their performance.
“I’m really glad I went, I got to enjoy their beautiful singing.” a client commented.
They also got involved in discussing a name for Springwood’s choir group.
On the way back to Arcare Parkinson, we stopped by the local Maccas to enjoy a deliciously cold ice cream.
