The RoseWood Village Senior Living Assisted Living & Memory Care in Virginia is reaching out to families and the community for support this Thanksgiving. Because some residents will not be able to leave for the holidays, facilities are asking for help from families to make the holiday feel a bit more normal. Staff at the facility are “asking families to send in digital photographs of their loved ones from previous holidays” for a slideshow that will be shown to residents.
Residents in Virginia are allowed to go home for the holidays, but will be required to isolate for at least two weeks upon return. Many residents are planning to stay put, “planing to share their Thanksgiving feast with family from behind a glass window or an iPad screen.”
The facility is encouraging anyone in the community to send an encouraging note or picture for residents. Residents have been restricted for almost a year due to COVID-19, and look forward to any interaction with their community.
