Technology has helped us stay connected especially for the past year throughout the pandemic. Software like Skype, Facetime and Zoom has made video chats available for families and individuals receiving senior home care and supported living alike to stay connected! Think about reaching out to your friends or hosting a group video chat with your family and include loved ones who receive assisted living support.
Join a virtual book club or play games online
Words with Friends is a great game for seniors to exercise the mind and stay connected with friends and loved ones during the COVID-10 pandemic. You can play against friends on the app. Another great way for those receiving senior home care to stay active with loved ones is to select a book for you and your friends or family to read and discuss virtually!
Schedule a phone call
Plan a phone call with a friend or family member like you would schedule a work meeting. You can discuss interesting articles to read, videos to watch and new TV shows.
Go for a (socially distanced) walk with a friend
Schedule a time to get outside in the spring weather and go for a walk with a friend. It is suggested that you continue to wear your mask and stay 6 feet apart. Exercise is good for the heart and for the mind!
Hire a caregiver
Staying safe does not mean having to stay isolated. Hiring a caregiver that wears appropriate PPE can help relieve the burden of loneliness. Caregivers can help with activities of daily living, doing laundry or simply keeping you company. Learn more about Dunwoody At Home and our renowned senior home care services today.
