Virtual birthday party keeps family connected

Staff have thrown a virtual birthday party for Northside Residential Aged Care Facility resident, Max, who is unable to have visitors due to physical distancing restrictions. 

 
“Max’s family brought in a cake and gift prior to the party, so we could present it to him while all the family members were on the video call. Our birthday superstar sat back and watched in awe his family interacted with him and each other,” Kate MacDonald, Nurse Unit Manager said. 
 
The party included presentation of a new “pet” which was received as the birthday gift. 
 
“It was beautiful to watch the interactions with the new therapy cat and to see Max still have a way to celebrate with his loved ones.”
