During these days of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is often a challenge to keep ourselves occupied and motivated while we practice social distancing. Thankfully, more creative measures have been taken by businesses and organizations to bring us new forms of entertainment! Virtual tours are becoming more and more popular as people can visit art museums, national parks, and breweries – all from their own home. Senior citizens in elderly care in particular find virtual tours entertaining, as they can experience adventure without putting themselves at risk!
Your senior loved one can go on an adventure with 5 of our favorite virtual tours listed below!
