Like most of you, residents in
Pathway to Living communities are sheltering in place. We are closely following CDC guidelines and referring to local, state and federal protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and rely on the guidance from scientists and health professionals as our world heals.
While we remain focused on social distancing and proper hygiene practices, team members, residents and families are also finding ways to go through this experience together, even when apart.
Visitation is on hold, but
residents and family are staying connected through virtual visits and even window visits, where loved ones can actually see each other from a safe distance.
Restaurant and family-style dining is on hold, but
residents enjoy three fresh, healthy and delicious meals delivered daily to their doors. What’s more, team members cruise the hallways with snack and ice cream carts in between meals with tasty pick-me-up treats.
Group programming is on hold, but residents are rediscovering
time to pursue passions like painting, scrapbooking and sewing with the support of team members, who deliver whatever supplies are needed for in-home projects.
Interactive programs like
hallway happy hours,
mobile dance parties and
sing-alongs encourage residents to stay in touch and have fun with neighbors from a safe distance. Residents are accessing musical performances, museum tours and continue to experience lifelong learning content online from their personal devices or ones borrowed from the community.
Our residents tell us that they are experiencing less stress and loneliness, because they are living under one roof in a community of support and feel a true sense of being in this together. Our frontline caregivers are available to meet their physical and emotional needs, while families continue to find creative ways to connect and stay in touch.
The dedication of Pathway’s frontline team is being recognized by others with kind words of appreciation and thank-you letters, which lift the team’s spirits. People are invited to share their feedback and experiences on Pathway’s
“Resident Experience Hotline” at
888-959-3745. You can leave a message anytime, and a Pathway team member will respond to you within six hours.
While the world navigates uncertain times, Pathway’s mission remains the same.
We believe that a vibrant, meaningful and purpose-filled life is achievable at any age. Thank you for supporting us in this mission.
We’re proud to share day-to-day photos of our real-life hero team members and residents, but want to point out that many photos were taken before the mandate to wear masks, which, rest assured, team members are currently following at all times.
