Oran Park Day Program held a Carers event recently where they invited all clients parents and guardians to celebrate their loves one’s achievements and progress. While most of the Oran Park Day Program Carers Events are well attended and generate great discussion, last Friday’s Carer Event was the most amazing one yet.
There was a tremendous turnout, with around 35 parents attending.
Clients were also very excited to get involved with preparations for the event. They helped to make lunch for their parents, carers and friends, decorating the site and getting everything ready.
With such a lovely turn out for the event, it was also a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and farewell, client John Zerafa and his family, as they move to the Central Coast. John has been attending Afford’s Oran Park Day Program since January 2017 and is also involved in Club Afford and Afford Getaways. John has many friends at Afford and participated in two Afford Getaways.
It was sad news for friends and carers at Oran Park Day Program, but the energy was still alive and all of his friends and carers decided it would be a great idea to make a collage with the help of Oran Park staff member, Antoinette Imbruglia, for John to remember everyone.
