With enhanced visitor restrictions now in place, staff members at long term care communities across the Commonwealth are using creative approaches to keep residents engaged and socially active during this extremely challenging time. Whether it be playing hallway bingo, window visits, hallway noodle baseball, or virtual visits and hugs, all levels of staff have taken extraordinary efforts to continue providing a safe, healthy and connected community for their residents.
With state and federal guidance continuing to change at a rapid pace, Mass Senior Care Association continues to aggressively advocate for the needs of our long term care residents, staff and providers.
