Residents speak up at Palm Lake Care Bargara meeting
November 18, 2019
Residents at Palm Lake Aged Caring Community at Bargara are so proud of their beautiful home they asked for it to be featured on a postcard. The art of letter writing and staying in touch with friends and family via pen to paper is not lost amongst this age group.
By creating a Palm Lake Care Bargara postcard they reasoned, it combined their love of letter writing with their pride in showing others their beautiful home. The family owned organisation was happy to oblige.
Service Manager, Steve Wheeler explained they had artwork prepared featuring a selection of beautiful images and on the reverse, the resident quote ‘Here I feel cared for….’. Steve said, “we took the artwork back to a resident meeting for final approval and was unprepared for their response. They talked amongst themselves, saying that although they do feel cared for, it wasn’t quite right.
Instead, they took a vote and settled on ‘Here I am enjoying life ….’. It was probably the loveliest thing we as care givers could have heard.”
