Pat’s Everlasting Love

Pat Roach was Arcare Craigieburn’s first resident, but it‘s her first love that’s got everyone talking. Pat met a young man named Max when they were 15 and 16, respectively. They were together seven years when unfortunately their relationship ended. After going their separate ways, Pat and Max both went on to find new partners and get married.

Forty years later, however, Pat received a phone call out of the blue from none other than Max, inviting her to meet up. Pat agreed and got the surprise of her life when Max proposed to her that day! Pat said yes and decades later they’re still very happily married in Craigieburn where they’ve lived for the last 23 years.
