Skype birthday party at Arcare Oatlands

Client Daniele ‘Danny’ Ciapponi at Arcare Oatlands was unable to spend his birthday in the usual way with his family due to the current situation.

So, a group family Skype video chat was organised so they could all celebrate together.

Danny and his family members each had a glass of red wine together and Arcare Oatlands’ team members also joined in to sing Happy Birthday to Danny while he cut his cake.

‘It’s so special to be able to celebrate with Dad still,’ Danny’s daughter commented.

As the online birthday party came to a close, Danny’s son shared with us, ‘Thank you for making this happen, it means a lot to us and to Dad.’

Here at Arcare Oatlands, we are doing our best to ensure that clients feel connected to their loved ones during the preventative lockdown period.

And with modern technology like video call software and the Arcare App, we can do just that!
