How to Connect with Residents

"To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart."

-Phyllis Theroux

Right now, we're doing our best to enact social distancing to keep our loved ones safe. But, that can be lonely and difficult for many people. Here are a few suggestions for connecting with residents when you're not able to speak face-to-face:

  1. Phone calls: phone calls are an easy way to connect with a resident daily. If it may be difficult to call the resident directly, or if they need help connecting, call the facility to see if you can set up a time to call to make sure someone is available to assist.

  2. Video chat: many of us can access video chat on our phones or other devices. CCHR has enabled video chat to make it easier for residents who might have issues with a telephone, or would benefit from seeing a family member or friend. Call the facility to set up a time that would work best for the resident's schedule, and to make sure someone is available to assist.

  3. Letters: writing a letter or sending a card is a wonderful way to let someone know you're thinking of them. Mailing addresses for each facility can be found here.
