By Maureen Gardner, Executive Director, EPOCH Assisted Living at Brewster Place
Our Life Enrichment team is always trying to find new and exciting ways to bring new topics of interest to our residents. After discussing what new and interesting topic we could introduce next, our team decided that Facebook was a good topic, and that I should be the one to introduce it. The thought was that if the executive director hosts a program, residents may feel more inspired to attend, so by my hosting the demonstration, we hoped to get a great response.
As the residents gathered around the big screen, I was struck by how curious they were about this whole concept.
“How many of you have heard the term ‘social media?’” I asked as I began the program. Many hands went up in the air. “Well,” I explained, “Facebook is one form of social media that we are going to learn a little about today.”
