Assisted living facility takes residents on weekly virtual vacations

Cruise companies like the Royal Caribbean and Carnival have canceled cruises around the world. The travel industry has taken a big hit because of the coronavirus.

And since the Centers for Disease Control says seniors are one of the most vulnerable groups for the virus, one assisted living facility in the East decided to bring the vacation to them.

Columbia’s Tyrrell House has been getting a lot of attention online lately, too, for their photos.

Their activities director captures and posts their virtual vacations weekly and crops the residents into photos, allowing them to travel the world—all from one building.
