Home/Our Communities/Five Star Fun Goes Virtual at Fairwinds – Spokane

As stay-at-home orders have spread throughout the nation, Leisure Care communities are committed to delivering Five-Star Fun in a new and creative way. The team at Fairwinds – Spokane is paving the way, engaging residents online while doing their part to keep residents healthy and well.

Delivering Five-Star Fun Virtually

Living in unprecedented times means that we have to look at doing things in a new way. As we seek to adapt and overcome while also fulfilling our promise of Five-Star Fun, Leisure Care communities across the country are looking for new and creative ways to deliver.

Residents in independent living and assisted living at Fairwinds – Spokane have been using social media and online tools to engage with each other in creative ways. While the physical community is quieter, their virtual lives have become a lot louder.

“During this time we’re just trying to be even more creative in what we can do with our residents. It’s been just a lot of fun seeing what the possibilities are with these different restrictions now,” Jamie Bravato, General Manager

A recent video posted showed the team at Fairwinds – Spokane lip-syncing to “My Heart Will Go On”, telling the residents they miss seeing them in social settings. The residents responded back, lip-syncing the same song.

The staff created a public service announcement reminding residents to wash their hands, posted photos of residents offering to trade toilet paper, and had a spring getaway to the lobby (while still adhering to social distancing guidelines) with a cold drink and inflatable palm trees.


Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures and Leisure Care communities are up for the task! How are you staying connected during this time? Share your ideas with us in the comments below.
