While in quarantine and practicing social distancing, we’re all trying our best to stay busy and occupied! Businesses and organizations all over have come to our rescue by offering their services and experiences online.
One of the most popular stay-at-home activities we’ve been loving are virtual tours! Senior citizens in elderly care especially love them, because they allow us to travel anywhere from our home – to a national park, an art museum, a brewery, and countless other places.
Read on below for our list of our 5 favorite virtual tours we know your senior will love!
