Field Trips and Excursions
Description

No one wants to spend all their time at home, even when home is a vibrant assisted living community. The best communities offer special trips and excursions to local attractions such as museums, symphonies, mini-put courses and nature preserves. Some even partner with community service organizations to help seniors volunteer and give back.

A way to set up an excursion and keep it socially distanced is to rent a school bus for a day and transport your residents one per seat, leaving a seat in between. Once at your destination, make sure residents keep their masks on when needed and check in at periodic intervals with staff. Heading back to the community should follow a similarly careful plan.
