Due to restricted visitation orders, Assisted Living Facilities and Retirement Communities are finding new ways to keep residents engaged with the community and their families. Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg (WC) is just one of Lynchburg's retirement communities striving to keep their residents feeling connected during this time. WC staff has found new ways to connect virtually with residents such as creating an in-house television channel to broadcast live updates, concerts from local musicians, exercise classes, trivia games and more. WC staff are also facilitating in-person socially distanced activities like hallway Bingo, window visits, and porch visits where residents can engage with family and friends.
“We are proud of all our employees for their teamwork, demonstrating flexibility, creativity and dedication to all the residents we serve at Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg. We thank them for following all the necessary procedures to be safe and healthy during this difficult time, and for all the work they do every day to provide person centered care to our residents. We have a strong community and we will get through this pandemic together.” - Debbie Callahan, VP Marketing and Development, Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg"
