A visit from the neighbours

The Portarlington Community was proud to welcome their friends, and neighbours, from the Point Lonsdale Community over for a morning tea in June.

While a chance to catch up with friends, the trip was also an opportunity for the group to check out the newly refurbished Arcare Portarlington.

After a short bus trip, the Point Lonsdale Community were surprised to pull up out the front of the completely transformed building.

While it may not have looked the same from the outside, the group was soon greeted by the familiar friendly faces of the Portarlington Community.

Clients commented on how beautiful the residence looked and there were many references to it feeling like a welcoming resort.

First up, the group was taken to one of the cosy dining rooms where a beautiful morning tea was laid out.

Here, the two communities got a chance to catch up on all that had been happening over the past few months.

After a morning of great conversation and many laughs, the official tour began.

They group checked out the new lounges, suites, hair salon, movie theatre, alfresco caf├ęs and courtyard.

There were impressed nods of approval all round during the tour.

One client spoke for the whole group when she said, ‘I’m looking forward to doing this again!’
