Making the Best of Social Distancing at The Cedars

In these days of social distancing and ‘stay safe at home’ orders, it’s critical to keep our residents connected to their loved ones and community, for happiness and overall well being.  As we have adapted and navigated our current situation under COVID-19, we want to take a moment to share some of the platforms, personal connections and virtual technology in place, as well as our approach to offering special events and activities. The satisfaction, fulfillment, health, and safety of our community members is our main objective and we look forward to a continued offering of enriching and enhancing programs and experiences.

Our traditional in-house activity programs have been transformed to virtual visits and programs on each neighborhood, in a more intimate setting and definitely at a distance. The residents are enjoying balloon tosses, current events, word games, room deliver treats, Ask Google! and Money-Monday-Bingo, just as they always have – just in smaller groups.  Many of our residents have been enjoying video chats with the neighborhood iPads with their loved ones, as well as ‘window visits’ where they spend safe, face-to-face time with their family members while maintaining the social distance that is so important. If you would like to schedule a ‘visit’ with your loved one – please call 221-7000 between 8:30AM and 3:30PM, Monday through Friday. 

At The Cedars, we’re making the best of this ‘new normal’. Many thanks to our amazing staff and the wonderful family members who have supported our community – we are stronger together.
