In life, they say “Save the Best till last” and this statement is true for new friendships that are forged once the clients settle into their new routine.
Valerie and Mignon are clients at Arcare Sanctuary Manors and together, they span a lifetime of more than 180 years.
Together, they have a vast amount of wisdom and life experiences.
I love how ladies find a soul-friend they can feel comfortable with, sharing their stories and life’s moments with each other.
Valerie heralds from Sydney and Mignon from South Africa. These ladies have now come together to share life and all the daily social activities on offer here at Sanctuary Manors.
I look forward to seeing these lovely friendly ladies each time I come to share life with all the clients and in particular, those that can find their way to one of the activities I host on a regular basis.
Bingo is a favourite and we often share lots of giggles, fun and morning tea. We also get to exercise our brains with those Special Bingo Numbers and win a little chocolate treat for later.
