Virtual Therapeutic Activity Program
In addition to in-person services, The Hummingbird ProjectSM is also pleased to provide virtual activity sessions and engagement. If we are unable to meet in person or if we do not have team members in the area you live, this is a great way to remain actively engaged. In some cases your loved one/client may prefer to meet virtually.
How It Works:
Similar to the in-person sessions described above, our therapeutic activity specialists customize sessions to the passions, interests, and needs of your loved one/client. While we may not be able to physically visit locations together, we can offer cultural activities such as guided virtual museum tours, live music concerts, and art lessons online. We can also provide opportunities to engage in legacy or oral history projects, lifelong learning about topics of interest, expressions of gratitude, spiritual devotion, verbal brain games, storytelling, and much more. We have found that with a little creativity, almost any activity we offer in person can be adapted to a virtual connection.
Equipment you will need for a virtual activity session:
Any one of the following will do:
- Laptop or Computer
If you don’t have a computer, tablet, or smartphone, we will provide detailed activity session instructions for caregivers or family members via telephone and/or through mailed activity packets. If you need assistance purchasing or using technology, we are happy to help with this need.
What if my loved one/client has never used this kind of technology?
We have had great success working with clients virtually, regardless of technological prowess. We can help by ordering and setting up a device for your loved one/client to use; we can work collaboratively with a care partner to assist with set up; and we can teach your loved one/client how to use technology by providing lessons and support.
