While Covid is keeping us in isolation, take the extra time residents have and use it to promote reflection. Reflecting on happy memories can be extremely beneficial for residents, especially if they are struggling during these hard times. Encourage our loved ones to journal their thoughts and to reflect on their life. Meditation can be another great tool for reflection.
To extend this spiritual activity to a group, host a meditation session in a common area. Have residents sit in very comfortable chairs, dim the lights and play comfortable music. Make sure all residents are properly distanced from each other and have the proper personal protective equipment. Finally, simply allow your residents a period of uninterrupted reflection.
