Assisted living centers throughout the country have changed a lot since COVID hit for the first time at the beginning of 2020. Now that the 2021 celebrations are approaching, a lot of seniors want nothing more than to be able to hug their family members and spend some quality time with them. While displays of affection might be difficult and largely discouraged due to the rules of social distancing, you can still spend time with your loved ones AND follow all the assisted living Denver safety protocols without much difficulty.
The most important thing to do is to inform yourself about how your assisted living Denver activity staff will handle the celebrations in 2021. What are the visiting hours going to look like? Where might you be able to see your visiting family members? What are the main rules for conduct (such as wearing masks, social distancing, staying within the confines of certain areas etc.)?
Learning about these facts and communicating them to your family members via phone or online should be your main priority. Once you do so, it will be easy to plan a visit and spend some quality time together, forgetting about the difficulties of life for a while, as well as telling stories, sharing news, discussing your hopes and vision for the future, and having some good ol’ fashioned fun for a change.
