It’s been a challenge for many of us to stay busy and motivated during the COVID-19 pandemic while we social distance ourselves and quarantine. But thankfully, many businesses and organizations have come to our rescue with creative ways to provide us with new experiences! One of the best activities to come of this situation is the virtual tour.
Senior citizens in elderly care especially love the virtual tours! They can explore a national park or an art museum right from the comfort of their own home.
Take a look below at 5 of our favorite virtual tours. We know your senior loved one will enjoy them!
