At Nikkei Home, we are proactive in our approach to meeting the needs of seniors, adapting as the situation evolves to ensure residents are maintaining their physical and mental well-being.
We recently read UBC’s issue of Pathways focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it relates to seniors — the need for connecting with compassion and care especially during this time. Its a great resource of information, including advice for caregivers and families, and it reflects many of the things we are doing currently at Nimi Nikkei Home.
- We are encouraging family to phone, write letters, send photos, or kids drawings
- We launched the Send Letters to Seniors community initiative
- We are scheduling Virtual Family Meetings and Virtual Buddy Meetings
- We are doing 1 on 1 exercise, and encouraging residents to walk around the building, and enjoy the patio.
We invite you to give this issue of Pathways a read!
