The community of Arcare Sanctuary Manors held a Spring BBQ where all team members and clients were encouraged to dress in their brightest clothes to add to the residence fun and laughter.
Clients also had the opportunity to decide if they would like to enjoy their meal indoors or outdoors.
Seeing the sun shining down and the clear blue skies, the clients went with enjoying their BBQ meals in the great outdoors.
As they were getting settled in their seats and in their favourite spots, it was not long before the smell of grilled onions and barbequed sausages cooking on the barbie filled the Sanctuary Manors’ air.
The sights and sounds of a BBQ also brought back many memories for the clients as they happily reminisced about the times when they had their own BBQ backyard parties with friends and families.
‘It feels just like yesterday!’ some of them said while enjoying their meal.
Once all the meat was cooked, our Arcare community of team members and clients sat down and ate together; the communal meal with friends was exactly what they have all been waiting for.
