During this time when visiting your loved ones is unavailable for the time being, we would like to offer an available resource to remain in communication. We understand the importance of staying connected, and e have implemented tablets that residents may use to communicate and video conference with their family and loved ones. Education and assistance will be offered to our residents needing assistance with smart devices in facetiming and using Skype, which has been made available for use. Below are instructions for downloading and getting started with your Skype account.
