Balancing COVID-19 safety and the relaxation of restrictions on visitation, communal dining, and group activities is vital to providing for the well-being of residents in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities. Social isolation has been a significant concern throughout the pandemic. This session will discuss effective transitions for skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities to safely return to a “new normal”. Identifying when a resident can receive visitors, facilitating returning to communal dining and small group activities, and returning to a “new normal” will be discussed along with how this transition may affect the residents in our care.
After this webinar, the attendee will be able to:
1. Identify situations in which residents can have visitors
2. Determine how to facilitate communal dining and small group activities
3. Describe effective transitions to a “new normal”
Appropriate for administrators, directors, owners, directors of nursing, and nurses in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities.
