Resident Socialization & Engagement

The major changes brought on by COVID-19 are testing the connections our residents have with loved ones. However our care teams and activity staff are ready and willing to bridge those gaps. Our goal is to help every resident get through this time feeling supported, cared about and engaged. Our resident’s happiness and mental health are vital. Knowing that, we are providing many of the same comforting activities they`ve always enjoyed, but with a twist or two. With out-of-the-box thinking, we are able to keep our residents busy and socially connected in new ways.

Here are just a few ways our residents are staying in touch with loved ones and with each other:

  • Residents have learned to use iPads, Skype and FaceTime so they can see and talk with their families and friends

  • Staff are assisting residents with their cell phones to text message and send emails to families and friends

  • Emails sent to the home from resident’s families and friends are printed and shared with the resident

  • Socially distanced Bingo with disposable or washable bingo cards

  • Hallway karaoke and dancing

  •  Musical window performances

  •  Chair exercises at safe distances

  • Travelling birthday and special occasion cart

  • Socially distanced movie nights

  • Please refer to each homes monthly “Kaigo Connection Newsletter” for information, stories and pictures of activities in our homes.
