Familial love between cousins Doreen and Jean at Arcare Oatlands

Family means the world to clients Doreen Rickards and Jean Lee at Arcare Oatlands. And according to Doreen, they are first cousins and also the best of friends.

You will often see them catching up with one another and most recently, they even met up for an afternoon of music therapy at the residence.

‘We love getting together, it feels just like the old days,’ Jean happily shared.

Both in their nineties now, Doreen and Jean were acting like giggly teenagers as they sang their hearts out and laughed their heads off during the fun-filled musical afternoon.

‘It’s important to laugh and to see them so happy makes us all happy too. It’s infectious!’ Lifestyle Co-ordinator Krystal said.

Doreen and Jean’s love for one another and their close bond as family and as best friends are stronger than ever!
