Babies bringing joy to SACARE

Last month the ABC news released a video about a baby that helped bring back memory and speech to an aged care resident with dementia. This made us realize that babies are more powerful than we probably think.

Babies and their mums are paying regular visits to residents in SACARE’s Supported Independent Accommodation facilities and everyone’s loving it!
