Meeting Rose at high tea in Tuscany

Clients in Arcare Helensvale St James’ Tuscany community enjoyed high tea while meeting a new friend, Rose.

Rose is one of the latest clients to move into the residence and she has been settling in well.

She is still getting used to her new surroundings and establishing a new routine, so a warm and inviting high tea was the perfect way to do just that.

While Lifestyle Co-ordinator Marisha was setting up for high tea, Rose saw what she was doing and offered to help.

Rose was quite the hostess back in her day as she used to entertain her many friends and family over a meal or two.

She really misses being the life of the party, so she was very happy to help out and socialise with everyone during the High Tea.

The weekly activities that are part of the Lifestyle calendar aim to encourage interactions and socialisation among clients.

So, it was wonderful to see them chatting, laughing and getting to know their neighbours a little better over a warm cup of tea.
