Centennial celebration with Joyce at Arcare Eight Mile Plains

At the start of October, client Joyce Ross from our Arcare Eight Mile Plains community celebrated a centennial milestone – her 100th birthday!

Joyce had two separate birthday parties due to the large number of visitors that wanted to celebrate with her.

She is a very popular lady indeed!

Celebrating at the Lawson community patio, Joyce and her family were enjoying the flow of drinks, music and birthday celebrations.

Lifestyle Co-ordinator Fonzie had thoughtfully put together a program for both days that consisted of a proper welcome session, a gifts presentation, cake-cutting and more.

As described by those around her, Joyce is full of life and prior to the parties, she did not sleep a wink as she was very excited!

Joyce also specially wore her favourite dress on her very special day.

This dress holds a lot of meaning for Joyce and her family as she had made the dress herself when she was a dressmaker.

From all of us Arcare Eight Mile Plains, Happy Birthday Joyce!
