As one of Arcare Maroochydore‘s special Christmas activities for the month of December, we decided to do Christmas nails with Lisa, our talented Lifestyle Assistant.
Run over two sessions so that we could fit everyone in, our residents gathered in the theatre eagerly awaiting their turn to have their nails painted. While waiting they chose their nail polish colours, chatted among themselves, and listened (and sang along) to lots of Christmas songs.
We had four nail polish colours to choose from including a gold/green, a very bright and beautiful red, a fairy crystal glitter, and also a glitter that looked like Christmas baubles. It was great to see that our clients chose different combinations of these colours plus glitters, so that their Christmas nails were uniquely suited to them.
This activity was something different and fun and festive that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who came along. We even had a couple of gentlemen come along, not to have their nails painted, but to enjoy the festive atmosphere.
Pictured below is one of our lovely clients Val getting in on the fun with Steve, our Maintenance Manager, who agreed to let her paint his nails bright red!
Onward with the Christmas festivities.
