Family fundraising provides our new Facebook portal

Today we successfully trialled our new Facebook Portal with our first family members.

It worked really well for the resident and her family who are spread all over the world, and they have kindly given their permission for us to share the photo.

We hope to make the system available to everyone from Monday 8th February, and are busy making the necessary preparations. We will be sending out more information about how to access it over the course of this week and are in the process of attempting to set up WhatsApp on it as well.

This has been made possible because of the incredible fundraising efforts of one of our family members who completed a SkyDive last September to raise funds for the home.

Worried about the isolating effect that Coronavirus is having in limiting residents’ ability to see their families, Mike Codd took on the challenge of raising funds to provide additional physical and electronic equipment to enhance the wellbeing of Rathside’s residents.

Huge thanks go to Mike, along with everyone who supported him, for making this possible!
