Through The Looking Glass

Our man in Massachusetts, team member Matt, has to find ways to stay connected to his 89-year-old mom Joan during the Covid-19 pandemic. (His 94-year-old aunt also lives upstairs!) He stopped by for a “virtual” lunch.  Although it’s not quite the same as their usual hug, it does the trick for now.

Prior to the pandemic Joan was still working as a part-time receptionist at an Assisted Living facility. Let’s hope she can get back to her duties and hugs with Matt soon!

Welcome to #SayItForSeniors

Welcome to the movement! #SayItForSeniors was started as a way to combat social isolation in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. This new normal of social distancing in an effort to protect society’s most vulnerable is challenging for all of us. But with restrictions on visitation at senior care facilities, our eldest members of society, along with their caregivers, may be feeling particularly isolated right now.

We can help that by showing our seniors some much needed kindness!

It’s really quite easy.

  • Using your social media accounts post some friendly messages or videos and include #SayItForSeniors in your post.
  • We’ll work to get that hashtag out there and let senior care facilities and others know where they can find all the messages to show residents or seniors living in their own homes!

So gather up the kids, organize your family or a team (now meeting virtually of course) and get busy! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
