In July 2019, the Arcare Nirvana Avenue community celebrated their 2nd birthday.
Arcare Nirvana officially opened its doors on Monday 17th July 2017 and is one of Arcare’s smallest residences, only having 30 suites.
Team members and clients celebrated the occasion with a party, birthday cake and French champagne. Residence manager, Mary Varnas helped cut the birthday cake alongside Arcare Nirvana’s first client, Lisa Davis. Lisa has resided at Arcare Nirvana since the first day it opened two years ago.
Everyone enjoyed watching lifestyle coordinator, Delia’s presentation, which reflected on all the fun activities and outings that the community had participated in, over the course of the past two years. Delia projected photos of the events onto a screen for everyone to enjoy and reminisce over.
Clients were then treated to a spectacular performance multi-instrumentalist & performance artist, Terry.
Happy 2nd birthday Arcare Nirvana Avenue!
