Nothing puts a bigger smile on a resident’s face than hearing from, or connecting with, family and friends. As we age, we become more aware of what’s important in life — those we love. This is especially true of our seniors.
Now, more than ever, people need to find smart ways to stay connected. To help, here are five ways to connect with friends and family at our retirement communities.
A Phone Call
Have a gab. Share a laugh. Catch up on the latest news. They’d love to hear your voice.
FaceTime and Video Calls
All Lanes retirement locations are equipped with laptops and iPads, and our recreation teams are happy to provide the opportunity for residents to stay connected. Call ahead to book your call with a loved one.
Walk-up Window Visits
Visitation might not be an option, but that shouldn’t stop you from continuing to see a loved one. Call ahead to book a walk-up window visit and enjoy some face-to-face time. Bring a phone. Make a sign. Take the time to show you care.

Our team continues to post new photos and videos on our Facebook pages. This is a great way to stay connected and see what’s happening — and don’t forget to follow the location page of the retirement community where your loved one is staying.
Send an Email, Write a Letter
If none of the above strikes your fancy, then try writing a letter. Yes, a good old-fashioned letter. Or even better, handwrite your letter and post it in the mail. As an alternative, don’t hesitate to email a letter, picture, or anything else to brighten your loved one’s day. We’d be happy to print and deliver it to them.
