Stay Connected - Coping with COVID-19Use video or phone to stay connected with loved ones

Self-isolation doesn’t necessarily mean being isolated from friends and family. When you can’t catch up in person, seeing each other via video or chatting on the phone is the next best thing. Here at RFBI, we encourage our residents, their families and community members to stay connected with loved ones during this challenging time. Our teams have been helping residents stay connected with their loved ones through technology.

This is the beautiful Gladys from our RFBI Leeton Masonic Village. Her wonderful husband dropped by for a window visit with a lovely red flower and we’ve helped Gladys stay connected with him, as well as other loved ones via Skype and phone. In fact, she chats with them daily now!

There are a range of free and easy to use apps available for you to stay connected with your loved ones and most can be used over a smart phone or computer/tablet. Check out the links below to a few commonly used apps:
