Retirement village residents keep connected in a virtual village

As we know, it is important now more than ever to keep connected with one another and while many believe the digital world is a foreign place for over 70s, Metlifecare is bringing its residents into the digital age to combat social isolation.

Metlifecare has launched its new online activities calendar ‘Virtual Village’ alongside a raft of other initiatives to support residents at its 25 villages to stay connected and stimulated during the lockdown period.

Virtual Village is a simple-to-use online activity calendar to give residents a sense of routine and something to look forward to each day. It features what we believe is New Zealand’s longest online daily quiz, where residents can pit their wits against their neighbours, villages can take on other villages and Kiwis across the nation. It also will feature recorded Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra performances and in-home workouts.

You can find the Virtual village calendar of activities here
