While lockdowns may still be in effect, our loved ones in aged care do not need to feel like they are locked in. Over Mother’s Day, our SummitCare homes were all abuzz with families visiting to share their love with their mothers, grandmothers and even great grandmothers.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no visitors may enter the home unless through special circumstances or unless they are staff, so as a result of this our “Windows of Love” were created. Families have been able to view their relatives through the glass and share a conversation through a phone call, all the while keeping their loved one safely distanced from possible exposure to the virus that has been responsible for so many deaths in aged care across the world.
One such visit, at SummitCare Liverpool, was a family that celebrated their grandmother with a serenade via saxophone from her grandson. Flowers, cards, and some jazzy music to make Mother’s Day that extra bit special. It was a beautiful day with many lucky ladies being pampered and showered with love and affection from their families and from the care staff who look after them each and every day.
