When assisted living communities and skilled nursing centers began cancelling group activities and families could no longer visit, the resilience of seniors and care partners did a show-stopping number. The out-of-the-box thinking has spread like wildfire, inspiring people everywhere to stop the pandemic of isolation with fresh tools. Join us as we review specific case studies, touch on new video chat options, and share stories together.
