We are truly blessed here at Arcare Peregian Springs as we have the most selfless and giving volunteers.
Every week, whether rain, hail or shine, they come to visit the residence and their many friends.
From their time of volunteering at Arcare Peregian Springs, they have all become really good friends with one another.
With the generous help of our volunteers, the clients also have the opportunity to be part of many wonderful activities.
During the daily activities, they have also formed many valuable friendships with the clients.
And the clients always look forward to socialising and chatting with them.
Their visits mean a lot to everyone, especially the clients as it brings a smile to their faces.
After many years of meaningful friendships, they have built a strong sense of trust, respect, security, belonging and continuity together.
Often, you will find us all laughing, sharing stories and supporting one another.
At Arcare Peregian Springs, we are close knit community because of our lovely volunteers.
Thank you to all our volunteers as we are truly appreciative for everything you do.
And thank you for taking the time out of your day and your week to spend time with us.
We could not have done it without you!
Here’s wishing a Merry Christmas to all our volunteers and their families.
