Finding love at Arcare Craigieburn

It was fate when Phyllis moved across the hallway from Pat at Arcare Craigieburn. A classic example of love at first sight, Pat said ‘I saw her in the dining room sitting with her friend. I thought she was a really good looking lady so I walked over and introduced myself.’
