A surprise winner

Mary became emotional when she was announced as the lucky winner of a beautiful jewelry gift set during a high tea celebration at Arcare Surrey Hills.

It was a timely surprise as she had previously been speaking about wanting to give her daughter a special gift for her upcoming 50th birthday.

Mary was shocked to find out that she was the lucky winner as she said she doesn’t often win in competitions.

Her daughter was equally thrilled to be gifted the beautiful set for her birthday.

Reconnecting with friends


Marie, who recently moved to Arcare Surrey Hills, was apprehensive that she might not be able to continue her catch ups with her friends from a local community group. She greatly values their friendship and support.

After discussing her wishes with Lifestyle Coordinator Angelina, an outing was scheduled for Marie and her friends at the Ferntree Gully Hotel.

Marie thoroughly enjoyed seeing her friends again, and is also enjoying making new friends in the Surrey Hills Community.
