Our young people in residential care sometimes go out for their birthday, but with restrictions in place, celebrations took place in the home. One residential care unit, celebrated three birthdays during the lockdowns. AV staff held ‘iso-birthday parties’ with balloons, banners and cakes. They also enjoyed their favourite food for lunch and dinner to mark the occasions. With all of the residents involved, our staff said “it brought the home closer together; it felt like a big family”.
