Live Broadcasts of Activities for Residents
An exciting update from Dawn Worsley, Director of Recreation and Volunteer Services at FutureCare Irvington:
"When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, and that is exactly what our dedicated and creative staff has done. During the social distancing requirements recommended by the CDC, group programs are not advised. As a result, our activity professional and environmental service staff put together a LIVE BROADCAST of activities, streaming directly into each resident's room on a dedicated TV channel.
Our residents have been using this channel to play bingo, join exercise groups, watch the river dance performance and even play Wheel of Fortune. On St. Patrick's Day, we broadcasted trivia and residents who answered questions correctly received a little gold coin from a dressed up leprechaun.
Thank you to our wonderful team for adapting and making this happen!"
