Maureen’s Socially-Distanced Birthday

Not even a global pandemic was going to stop Arcare Carnegie resident, Maureen and her family from celebrating her 89th birthday. Determined to find a COVID-safe option to celebrate together, Maureen’s family worked in collaboration with the Arcare Carnegie team find a suitable and safe alternative; finally deciding on hosting a socially distanced party from the safety of the front-nature-strip and the front courtyard.

On Tuesday 27th October, Maureen’s family gathered on the nature strip outside the Carnegie residence, armed with cupcakes, balloons, thermos of coffee and gifts to help Maureen celebrate her special day.

The family members and friends all enjoyed tooting their horns and waving out the windows, as they arrived and left the residence front-lawn gathering. All the efforts made by the family and the team to make the morning safe, and special for Maureen, brought a huge smile to the face of the octogenarian.

The Arcare Carnegie community would like to wish Maureen a very Happy Birthday and Happy Returns!
