They were warmly welcomed by several of Arcare Templestowe’s clients, as well as their lifestyle coordinator, Noelene.
Clients from both residences enjoyed a special lunch in the private dinning room, which was prepared by Arcare Templestowe’s onsite 5-star chef. While enjoying lunch, one of the clients from Arcare Carnegie recognised a familiar face who was walking past the dinning room. It was their beloved former unit manager, who had recently transferred to Templestowe. The group invited the team member to join them for lunch, as it was an excellent opportunity to catch up and share stories.
After lunch, everyone was given a VIP tour of the new residence. Some of Arcare Templestowe’s premium features such as their theatre, virtual forest, cafe and billiards room. Everyone was extremely impressed by the features and outstanding architecture that the residence has to offer.
The respective lifestyle teams are already discussing their next visit together, and are potentially organising an activity for the two residence to enjoy together. Many of Carnegie’s clients, discussed how beautiful the residence was, on the way home.
