The coronavirus has forced many nursing homes and assisted living facilities to strictly limit visitation. This has taken both a physical and emotional toll on residents and their families. While physically distancing may protect the residents, social distancing has left many feeling isolated and hopeless.
Video conferencing apps like Zoom, Skype, and Whatsapp have been a saving grace for separated families, but with an important caveat – the facility’s internet strength. With increasing numbers of residents using video conferencing, scores of these facilities do not have what it takes to keep families connected. This is something that families looking for senior living options are now increasingly aware of.
We at Simpleworks want to do everything we can to help these facilities support the needs of their new and current residents, and help these residents stay socially connected with their friends and families.
We’d love to chat and see if we can assist your business in any way!
