Socially Engaged. Properly Distanced. Emotionally Connected.

Luau Day at Chartiers Bend

Every day we see more proof that social distancing can't keep us from connecting emotionally with our family, friends, and neighbors. Far from it, residents at our communities all over the country are making the most of recent social distancing recommendations by continuing to connect with one another in safe and creative ways. 

Despite current events, resort-style living looks just as lively as usual, with plenty of activities and entertainment to keep our spirits high and our faces smiling. What have we been up to? There's so much to share, but here are a few highlights.

Music
Music is good for the soul, and one of the many ways we're bonding during this time. Our friends at Daniel Pointe in Daniel Island, SC, listened from their balconies and patios while a talented singer from Opera Carolina serenaded them. A socially distanced singalong at Oak Park (Katy, TX) drew a crowd that filled the hallways with song. And speaking of hallways, have you ever been to a hallway dance? Chartiers Bend (Bridgeville, PA) cranked up tunes from the 1940s and kept the party going all the way to dinner, brought by room service.

Happy Hour
What could be better than spirits and smiles delivered right to your apartment home door? Our communities put a fun spin on happy hour by going door to door with themed carts filled with our favorite beverages. Red Rock Pointe (Las Vegas) lightened the mood with "Uni-Corona" Happy Hour, a play on words that included staff dressed as inflatable unicorns! Several of our communities, including Coronado Villa (Albuquerque) and Parkside Village (Aurora, CO), brought the islands to our neighbors in a stylish tiki bar cart complete with Hawaiian leis. Arrowhead Valley (Peoria, AZ), turned their happy hour into a circus, with a ring leader, strong man, and a clown! Pirates, cowboys, USA, sailing, spring, Easter—we've seen countless carts decorated to bring joy to our residents!

Activities & Wellness
Our communities always offer an abundance of opportunities for fun and socialization, and recent social distancing guidelines haven't changed that a bit! Classic games usually played at a table have moved to the hallways, like Provident Crossing's (Round Rock, TX) hallway bingo, where players follow along from the entryway of their apartments and compete for a most coveted prize—a roll of toilet paper! At Sky Pointe (Littleton, CO), the tabletop games have gotten too big for the table, and our friends must Connect Four while getting a little exercise. 

Speaking of exercise, we're also staying healthy physically and mentally. Residents at Stone River (Bradenton, FL) have taken their morning exercise routine outside where they can stay properly distanced and still get moving and enjoy the outdoors. At Sable Lodge (South Portland, ME), our neighbors have started participating in Mindfulness Monday with guided meditation that provides calm and comfort.

Celebrations
Current events have caused each of us to give up some of the things we enjoy, including gathering with loved ones for celebrations and milestones. While we can't replace the laughter of grandkids in your lap, we can still make any day special! At Chartiers Bend (Bridgeville, PA), our managers decorated residents' doors with balloons and flowers. And at Provident Crossings (Round Rock, TX), anniversaries and birthdays are made a little more special with balloons and treats. Delivered door to door!

RLC Family Strong
We're in this together to stay safe, and as an extended family of residents, managers, and staff, we'll continue to support one another and keep each other smiling!
