During these changed circumstances due to the Coronavirus, team members at Arcare Sanctuary Manors are finding innovative ways to make sure that important celebrations are never missed.
Today, lovely client Jean Healy was not able to give her son a real motherly hug for his birthday, but she was able to offer him this virtual Birthday Message and her Happy Congratulations from afar.
Jean and her son Dennis are very close, they share secrets, they share their love of movies, they go out for lunches and scenic trips, they also chat about extended family members and so much more.
Dennis is a devoted son; he visits three times a week and he always brings good cheer to all he encounters within the residence.
And we enjoy watching this wonderful kindred connection.
Even though we were unable to welcome him inside the residence due to the social distancing rules, we were still able to send out this wonderful message. This message was also forwarded to all of Jean’s relatives in the United States.
‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENNIS, LOVE MUM’
Thank you to Rickie, Arcare Sanctuary Manors’ Lifestyle angel who arranged this wonderful moment
