Senior living communities across the country are taking every precaution with coronavirus (COVID-19) and putting strict plans in place to keep their residents healthy.

With so many uncertainties around COVID-19, it is easy for seniors to feel increasingly isolated from friends and family. Communication and connection are key right now to helping seniors and their loved-ones cope with separation. The more we communicate, even just to say hello, will help combat social isolation and let these seniors know they are loved.

Our friends at LifeLoop know a thing or two about communication. They provide a family and resident engagement platform, to help communities keep their residents feeling connected to their loved ones and the outside world.

LifeLoop has provided us with some great virtual activities that we have shared in the Resources section on this web site. We hope they are helpful!

We can’t emphasize enough that engagement, communication and connection are key right now! Acts and messages of kindness will help seniors know we are thinking of them!
