Like with everything else these days, the activities department at the Home has had to be creative when planning activities for the Residents. A new calendar item in this age of social distancing and virtual events is the monthly iPad Bingo.
Through the power of Zoom and iPads on each household, the activities department is able to call Bingo for all the nursing home Residents to see and hear while they remain on separate households. Residents from the same household are permitted to gather together, but those from different households are not yet allowed to comingle. The Zoom call plus the iPads makes virtual Bingo the next best thing to being all together playing Bingo in the activities room! Thank goodness for modern technology during this pandemic!
