Would anyone like to skype with a group of seniors Sep 14th
« on: September 08, 2016, 11:46:23 PM »
I work in the Life Enrichment department at an assisted living, our population is specifically for seniors with dementia.

Next week is "connected living week" and I'm looking for someone who would be willing to spend 30 minutes skyping with a group of residents who live here.

Preferably I'm looking for someone who could talk about work or a hobby, answer questions, and if you have something you could show or demonstrate on camera that would great. I'll wait till Saturday morning to see if I get any responses from you guys before I start looking elsewhere.

Also I'll be in with the residents so you'll also get to Skype with me :-)

It can be anytime between 2pm and 4:30pm EST

Thanks!

I'll be working, too.  Feel free to bore them with my choral music thread.  :th_kopje-koffie-1:

I can't help with the Skyping but think it's really lovely that you're doing this for the residents. I hope you can get some cool participants and that it goes well.

How did it go?

It went well, I found an elderly country musician from Texas to skype with, the residents loved it :-)
