Faye, our Volunteer Pianist at Arcare Helensvale has been playing the piano for our residents for many years now.
As a small token of our appreciation for her, Lifestyle Co-ordinator Kate presented Faye with a Volunteer Badge.
She plays at our residence every Wednesday morning and the residents love every minute of it.
“I really enjoy playing here and I’ve formed great friendships with the residents,” Faye shared.
Faye learnt to play the piano by listening to her mother, who is a professional piano player and started playing it herself at 10 years old.
Every night, their home would be filled with song and music as they got together to perform.
Residing at the neighbouring Lindfield Gardens, Faye practices on her own piano, but also looks forward to playing at our Arcare Helensvale community.
And every Wednesday, the residents would gather in the lounge to listen to the soothing sounds of the piano.
And one resident who enjoys it is Margaret Morris and her best friend Patrina the bird.
Patrina is such a big fan that every time the music stops, she would squawk for more.
