During the Corona Virus it was extremely hard to find activities to do with the residents, keep them socially distancing whilst trying to keep them busy. We were, and are still not allowed to have volunteers come in which again made it extremely hard to run certain programs, and for us to try to keep our coffee shop going. The coffee shop is a good chance for our residents to be able to sit out in a dedicated area away from the normal communal area.
The hardest thing was the family visits with people trying to talk to each other through a window or a door wearing masks, most of the residents are hard of hearing, and with masks on and shields it was made so difficult to hear. But we have all come through it and hope there will not be another breakdown any time soon.
