Arcare Peregian Springs has been opened for 7 years now. Two of the original clients who moved in right from the beginning and some of the original team members are still with us.
Also, some of our volunteers that joined from the beginning celebrated our 7th birthday with us.
Over the years, many clients have come and gone, many great friendships fostered, lots of laughs were had, stories were shared and many have enjoyed these years of their lives.
We are blessed to know one another, from clients and families to team members and volunteers, we have all become friends.
We have learnt so much from the different journeys, backgrounds and wisdom of the clients.
As a Dedicated team, we strive to provide support to one another, especially during the ups and downs of this journey together.
