Mother’s Day gifts, cards and surprises at Arcare Glenhaven

It was a wonderful Mother’s Day at Arcare Glenhaven as there were non-stop deliveries of flowers, chocolates and gifts for mothers and grandmothers at the residence.

And for team members delivering the gifts, it was a joy to see the reactions from clients as they receive them.

Carol received a limited-edition care bear which she can cuddle on Mother’s Day instead while Margaret received a similar gift, but instead of a bear, it was a kookaburra.

Margaret was so surprised to see the soft toy and she thought it was such a cute gift!

One of our Lifestyle team members Vanessa went above and beyond on Mother’s Day to ensure the women in our residence felt special and acknowledged.

She thoughtfully created Mother’s Day cards to place on all the dining room tables and room trays.

She also spent time decorating the lounge areas with balloons and butterflies for Mother’s Day.

Vanessa decided to do this on her own as she wanted all the ladies to be included in the celebrations.

Vanessa and the clients have formed a wonderful friendship and you can tell from the enthusiastic chats they have together when Vanessa is at the residence.

‘It’s so beautiful what Vanessa did, with the cards and the decorations, we feel so special!’ a few clients commented.
