Using Vitality to combat the COVID-19 blues

At GenCare Lifestyle, we strive every day to keep our residents healthy in mind, body, and spirit and that has not changed since the news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks in Washington State. Although we have had to cancel all group activities and close our doors to visitors, we have been able to keep residents engaged and positive during this unique time, using our Whole Life Living model. All Vitality activities have been restructured to be one-on-one with our staff members, while also providing more independent activities for residents to do in their apartments.

Our residents have shared many reasons why they feel that living in our retirement communities have helped keep their spirits up and grateful they have the support of others to help them during a time that can feel isolating and stressful. Today and always, we are #GenCareStrong.
