Share a Virtual ExperienceMany seniors are feeling disconnected these days. But, through the power of technology, we can creatively reconnect.
It is estimated that 43% of seniors feel lonely on a regular basis, which can increase their risk of mortality. While limiting our visits can help keep our friends and family healthy, it’s also important to continue communicating with them to help them avoid social isolation. Video calls can be a great avenue for creating memorable moments even if we can’t meet in person.
Here are 7 experiences you can connect virtually:
- Read together
Grab a good book and take turns reading chapters to each other and see where your imaginations take you.
- Tell a childhood story
Surprise a loved one with a story they haven’t heard before.
- Teach a favorite recipe
Show a friend or loved one how to make a recipe through video chat.
- Have a dance-off
Show off some of your sweet dance moves and have a great laugh together.
- DIY together
Show a senior how to fix something or do a craft together.
- Watch a show or movie together
Find a great movie or show and click start at the same time.
- Make music
Grab a drum (or a pot and spoon) and jam together.
These are just a few ideas. Can you think of other virtual experiences you could have?
