Grandparents Week

To celebrate all of the grandparents at Arcare Keysborough, the community’s lifestyle team reached out to family members to ask for their help to organise a special surprise for all the residents.

As families still can’t visit their loved ones due to Level 4 lockdown restrictions, the lifestyle team thought it would be a beautiful gesture to ask families and any grandchildren to send in any family photos and heartfelt letters, so they could create a special Grandparents Day album for each client.

After receiving hundreds of photos and letters, the Keysborough lifestyle team worked tirelessly to collate everything into personalised albums for each resident to receive.

The recipients were beyond delighted to receive the albums. “Their reactions were absolutely priceless,” Lifestyle Coordinator Alison said. “You could tell that these albums really meant a lot.”
