A group of Landmark Village residents recently had an opportunity to make one of their favourite crafts: posters to hang on their room doors.

It had been several months since residents undertook such a project, but in July Landmark Village fun co-ordinator Brent Hart provided residents the materials they needed to make door posters, and the group happily got to work.

Physical distancing protocols have been in place to keep everyone safe during the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, so the program had to be modified, but Brent says there was still a social aspect to the activity.

“Once again, residents socially distanced; however, sitting in a large, (spread-out) circle still provides a group feeling and they’re able to chat,” Brent tells S&R Today.

And it was a meaningful activity because posters and door-hangers are something the residents enjoy creating, he adds.

As part of the safety protocols, residents had to use their own materials, such as markers, rather than sharing, which was the norm before the pandemic began.

Brent says by modifying programs to meet safety protocols residents can still enjoy many of their favourite activities.

“Everything takes a bit more thinking with the new way of things, but it’s worth it so the fun can still happen,” he says.
