2020 Christmas celebrations for Identitywa – a little different this year
Planning for Christmas celebrations and keeping COVID-19 safe has required a different approach to the holiday season for many people this year.
At Identitywa, proactively managing the threat of COVID-19 has definitely provided unique challenges. So…when it came time to plan fun Christmas events, while ensuring we followed all the COVID safe guidelines, we faced another challenge.
Housemates living in Identitywa’s Shared Independent Living houses in particular, needed to consider how to celebrate as their traditional gatherings were not going to pass the ‘COVID test’.
Visits to local parks to gather with family and friends were encouraged, along with hosting events at the beach or at home in the backyard with smaller numbers. This way people could celebrate while maintaining the recommended social distance.
As always, staff supported the various events and there were lots of smiles and laughter.
As 2020 comes to an end, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year 2021!
