I love the challenge of coming up with new ways to serve residents. After more than 20 years in long term care and assisted living, I have found that creativity and compassion are two skills that help turn challenges into opportunities.
During COVID restrictions it’s been especially important for us to look beyond the initial challenges and find new opportunities to serve our residents with excellence.
At Tribute, we believe the details matter, and that’s never been more true than during this quarantine. We’ve been keeping our residents as active as possible with regular exercise and brain fitness. We also continue to provide one-to-one visits, Bible studies, puzzles, movies, crafts, and more!
For those times when we cannot accommodate visitors due to safety restrictions, we’ve helped families stay connected through video chats and window visits. This has been a great opportunity for us all to master new technology and find creative ways to connect with one another.
Music has always been a key component of wellness at Tribute, and we have found new and creative ways to enjoy music with new safety precautions in place. Our residents are enjoying music on the patio with proper social distancing. It’s been a wonderful and enriching experience!
The challenges presented during COVID restrictions have given me new insight into the wonderful ways Tribute serves residents. This is truly the best job I’ve had in Texas, and I’m proud to be part of the Tribute family.
As the Director of Life Enrichment, I’d love to hear from you! Please email [email protected] with your suggestions for upcoming activities and opportunities for our residents!
