5 Ways to Replace Face-to-Face
With social distancing and the recommendations to stay inside in full effect, it’s important to find ways to still create that same feeling while playing it safe. Here are five ways to safely get “face-to-face.”
1. Mail Call
Send a simple token to let people know you are thinking of them. A deck of cards or other card games (UNO, Go Fish, Old Maid) are easy to send and can be a great relief for boredom.
2. Virtual Hello
Create and send a short, personalized video for each of your clients. Add a small detail that makes them feel special. Or, if you think it is appropriate, be a little silly.
3. Meals on Wheels
Arrange to have your client’s favorite food delivered to their door. Many local restaurants are starting delivery service to combat the shutdown of their dining rooms. Contact smaller restaurants to see if this is something they offer.
4. Drop It
If your local health authority has not issued a “shelter in place” order, you can simply drop off whatever item you were already planning to bring to your clients. Meaning, leave it on their porch. Text afterward to alert them of your “visit.”
5. Action Without Interaction
Purchase a digital iTunes or Amazon gift card and send to your clients to let them know they should have a movie night on you!
It is important to follow the guidelines presented by all agencies and health officials to keep both you and those who are important to you safe.
