It’s a boy!

The Arcare Taigum community threw a baby shower for one of our Personal Support Workers Bianca who has worked at Arcare Taigum since opening.

As Bianca knew she was expecting a baby boy, the lifestyle team decorated the lounge room with blue balloons, streamers and other beautiful decorations.

Emma, our lovely café attendant, made a cake for the shower and the kitchen staff put on a delicious spread of party pies, cheerio’s, cupcakes and fruit.

Everyone tucked into morning tea first before gift and games begun.

After morning tea, Bianca opened her gift from everyone at Arcare Taigum.

Wrapped in the box was bibs, a little outfit, a pram toy, socks and a beanie.

Bianca loved all the gifts, but her favourite present was the tiny baby socks as they were so small!

Following the gifts Bianca cut the cake, and everyone was quick to comment on how delicious it was.

Last but not least, it was time for the baby shower games!

The first game was guess the number of jelly babies in the bottle and Ernie took out the prize.

The second game was guess how big mums tummy is. Mary was the closest and won some chocolates for her efforts.

The third game was Price is Right where residents had to guess the price of baby products.

This game stumped almost everyone with many people commenting that they have never even seen some of the new baby products on the market today!

Bianca was very grateful for such a lovely morning and thanked the Lifestyle Team, the kitchen and all of the residents for putting on the shower and for the lovely gifts she received.
