Think Tank — Fighting the Social Distancing Blues
We know how challenging and draining this time can be for your staff and residents – we would like to offer you a much needed break from the craziness.
Some of our communities are breaking out “Boredom Portals” in order to provide their residents with fun, engaging content that can Spark a little bit of Joy amongst a very uncertain and frightening time. Viibrant has created a “Think Tank” to not only get you smiling, but also to keep our brains active!
Check out some of our Think Tank content from one of our communities in Durham, NC for puzzles, cultural readings, educational material, exercise videos, and more. Please share with fellow residents, staff, family, and friends!
