This month the Arcare Peregian Springs community celebrated their nine-year anniversary since opening in 2013.
Residents and team members, along with the management team, including the regional manager and residence manager, gathered for an intimate celebration with decorations, cake, and speeches.
“We are excited to be able to commemorate today, as it is important for the residents to celebrate where they live, along with their neighbours and community,” the community’s lifestyle coordinator, Diane Tyler, said.
Resident Pamela Abell, above left, who has been living within the community since it opened, joined the party to cut the cake, alongside Lynda Wardell.
Wardell has been part of Arcare Peregian Springs’ environmental team since the community’s commissioning.
Arcare’s very own chef also made the delicious sponge cake, above, that all the residents enjoyed.
“It was lovely to be able to organise something for the team members, management team and residents to celebrate together as a family,” Tyler said.
“We are very pleased that residents have embraced the lifestyle in our community and have formed new and lasting friendships over the nine years.”
Arcare Peregian Springs still has more than 10 team members, including Tyler, who started within the first six months of the opening and who remain to build the community into what it is today.
“I enjoyed joining in with all the activities; Di is definitely one of my favourite team members here,” Abell said.
