Blog – Bridging the Gap
The Village at Incarnate Word takes health and safety seriously. Strict protocols are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Residents and staff are required to wear face masks, practice social distancing, limit group meeting size, interaction time, and in more serious cases, quarantine.
All these protective measures can make maintaining physical and mental health difficult. As we provide a safe environment for residents to continue their fitness regimen, activities, and monthly meetings facilitated by instructors, presenters, and staff, we have bridged the gap through virtual engagement.
TVIW is proud to announce a new in-house channel, 1893, dedicated to fitness, educational, and informational content. Broadcasting live from the Assembly Room, simultaneous access is available on resident’s televisions allowing for participation with instructor or staff led activities, adding group interaction in a safe and health way.
Socially distanced fitness classes, like the one pictured, are offered Monday-Friday at The Village. Daily Mass can still be found on in-house channel 1890. For more information, call 210-829-7561, or visit www.thevillageiw.org.
