Nancy is a delightful resident in a local nursing home and has had a regular visitor Treasur for the past 21 years, through Melville Cares, Community Visitors Scheme.
She turned 95 years’ young on Thursday 19th September. Her visitor Treasur is on her holidays in India but she made very sure before she left that Nancy would have a visitor for her Birthday. Avril pictured here works for Melville Cares as the Coordinator and State Network Member for the Community Visitors Scheme and was very happy to surprise Nancy with some yellow roses and sweet treats.
Nancy was excited to get her gifts and card. They had a short conversation about Treasur and the regular visits. Nancy has met Treasur’s family and seen photos of them as they grew up, now Treasur brings her grandchildren to visit Nancy. If you would like to visit with this program in a local nursing home, please call Avril on 9319 0916 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
