Bringing families together

Hero image

Residents across all our Homes have been enjoying the new tablets to stay in touch with family and friends. Ray, a resident of Villa Maria Eastern Heights in Ipswich, got the chance to do a WhatsApp video call with his daughter who lives in Cairns.

Ray thought he was going to speak to her on the phone and was sitting waiting for it to ring. He was so overjoyed when Jen (Villa Maria’s Lifestyle Team Leader) put the tablet in front of him and he could see and talk with his daughter (a few tears were shed on both sides). Ray enjoyed the video call so much a standing Monday call is now planned for him and his daughter.
