Creative device bringing families together at senior facility in The Woodlands

A local couple created a contraption to help nursing home residents connect with the outside world amid coronavirus. This device is being put to good use at Unlimited Care Cottages, an assisted living community in The Woodlands.

“When they make contact through there, it’s just like a moment. There are tears shed and there are smiles,” said Steven Crenshaw, the creator of the device and owner of Handle With Care, a senior home safety business.

Affectionately called a ‘hugging booth’, Steve and his wife Amber Crenshaw, who works at the facility, came up with the idea after restrictions for visitors tighten amid coronavirus.
