Rebecca turns 100

On Thursday 6th February, Arcare Burnside client, Rebecca Tolentino celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by the community and her extended family.

Four generations of the Tolentino family came together to celebrate the milestone birthday.

The Arcare Burnside lifestyle team arranged a special party for Rebecca; buying balloons, a delicious personalised cake and they even hired her favourite performer to sing for everyone.

Family members took turns dancing around the room with the Centenarian, before everyone gathering around her to sing Happy Birthday.

As Rebecca prepared to blow out her candles and cut the cake, she turned to her daughter and asked how much they spent buying her cake. When her daughter replied, that it was free, because the lifestyle team paid, a huge grin swept across Rebecca’s face.

“Nothing makes mum happier, than something that is free.” Rebecca’s daughter said.

Arcare would like to wish Rebecca a very Happy 100th Birthday, and would like to also wish her Happy Returns.
