Senior Living Foresight
by Susan Saldibar
Those first, tentative steps toward bringing people physically back together again are going to be the hardest. Maybe you’ve already started. And hopefully, it’s going well. But the real test will be reaching those really reluctant residents. The ones we worry so much about who do little more than crack their doors open. But who can blame them?
I spoke recently with Lisa Taylor, CEO of iN2L (a Senior Living Foresight partner) about the terrible impact that social isolation is having on the health and well-being of residents who are still hesitant about venturing out of their apartments or rooms. Most agree that, with social distancing and safety precautions in place, it makes sense to begin allowing small groups of three to five residents to engage in communal activities.
