Arcare Pimpama recently celebrated Halloween on the last day of November by dressing up as some spooky and well, some not-so-spooky characters.
Some team members came dressed up as Mario, cats, witches and pirates!
As the team members went about their daily duties, they gave some of the clients a fright because of their scary costumes!
But most of all, they gave the clients and families a good belly laugh.
Personal support worker Tash stated “I love the dress-up days, it allows us to engage with the clients and give them a laugh. There is no better feeling then seeing a big smile on their faces!”
Coming to work as a team and having these days is one of the great things about Pimpama.
We all love to have fun!
Events such as Halloween may seem silly to some, however being able to get the team members involved and participating really makes the world of difference for the clients.
Not only do they get a laugh, but they also get to see the amazing costumes that team members put the time and effort into.
We are all about entertaining the clients and ensuring the clients enjoy the variety of activities and events organised by lifestyle coordinator, Kurt.
Overall it was an incredible day and there was lots of joy for everyone at Arcare Pimpama!
