Technology Sparks Better Connections The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has served as the catalyst for us all to find new ways to communicate with loved ones both near and far. At St. John’s communities, we made it a priority during the pandemic to use technology to ensure that residents stayed as connected as possible with family and friends during a time when in-person visits were impossible. St. John’s purchased dozens of tablets and scheduled weekly video chats for residents. More older adults than ever before are now using technology to communicate, grocery shop, and find a ride. As a result, St. John’s has put a greater emphasis on providing training and support for residents looking to safely navigate online options for communications, commerce, and more. SEE HOW ST.

Residents Gain New Student Pen Pals


Upperclassmen from the Harley School in Brighton were connected with independent living residents at St. John’s for a pen pal initiative. In lieu of in-person learning, this project temporarily replaced the W.I.S.E. program that launched during the 2018-2019 school year. The pen pal program culminated with video chats between several of the student-resident pairs.
