Here at Arcare Peregian Springs, our Father’s Day celebrations are always extra special for the clients!
Whether they were fathers, grandfathers, uncles or godfathers, we all celebrated together in the private dining room, along with some of their partners joining us.
They all enjoyed a wonderful barbecue lunch that was topped up with wine and beer.
Afterwards, they even enjoyed a bit of ice-cream dessert with their favourite toppings to choose from.
Everyone was chatting away as they enjoyed their meal.
Their partners also enjoyed having other women to chat to.
On Sunday, they all had special Father’s Day placemats with an assortment of cards and gifts presented to them for lunch.
It was a wonderful day celebrating and honouring the contribution fathers and father figures make in the lives of many people.
From supporting each other and reminiscing about the father figures in their lives, we are glad to be part of this celebration and to have seen friendships formed at Arcare Peregian Springs.
The men’s group have formed many deep and meaningful friendships from socialising as a group. They even attend many special events and go out on many bus outings together!
Twice a month, they will gather for wine and cheese afternoons in the gardens.
