We’ve been spending a lot of time inside, practicing social distancing, while also enjoying a variety of fun activities to keep us entertained. From making our very own mailboxes, to keeping up to date with all the latest celebrity magazine gossip, to fun surprise packages from staff with goodies and sweet treats – like candy, cookies, sunglasses, nail polish, and stress balls – to even practicing yoga and painting in the hallways.

Even though we have found many ways to keep ourselves entertained and enjoy our time indoors, there’s nothing that can beat a call from a loved one! Many of our families have signed up to receive video calls from mom and dad, and it has been such a thrill to have loved ones see and speak with each other in a safe and healthy manner. If there is one positive takeaway from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is, “near or apart, family will always be close in your heart”.

Nothing beats family!
