Maria’s on Zoom

During August, Arcare Maidstone client, Maria experienced her very first Zoom with all the family at once.

The lifestyle team helped Maria setup the family call in the comfort on her suite. Initially Maria couldn’t understand why there were so many small boxs showing several small peoples’ faces. After the lifestyle team explained and showed Maria that they were in fact live-videos of her entire family, her face lit up and she cried with happiness.

“All I want to do is give everyone a big hug and a kiss.” Maria said.

A highlight during the call was Maria virtually meeting her new great-grandson; it was the first time Maria had seen him since being born.

Maria and her family have now decided to hold a family Zoom call at least once a week going forward, to ensure that everyone stays in contact.
