Phone calls and written messages are great, but sometimes a face-to-face chat can lift our spirit and renew our soul. Miravida Living is excited to offer video chats with residents. Please review our preferred platform to ensure you’re ready and then schedule your chat. Please be respectful of others and the capacity of our team by scheduling once a week.
Zoom is our preferred platform to visually connect you to your loved one. This is a free service and our team will send you the meeting invite at the time of your scheduled call. This will link you into the system and works from your computer, tablet or mobile device. If you’d like to run a test meeting to ensure your device is ready, click here.
About 15 minutes before your meeting time, our Life Enrichment team member will send the Zoom link to your provided email. This will give you time to launch the meeting, and allow our team to prepare your loved one. You are not required to sign in or make an account. The link should take you directly into the meeting.
At the scheduled time, our Life Enrichment will connect to the zoom link which was sent to you shortly before. Please join that meeting link as well. Miravida Living will be using a tablet so your loved one may hold it close and interact well with you. Please be patient if we connect shortly after the scheduled time, our first priority will be to make sure your loved one is comfortable and ready.
Our Life Enrichment team member will work specifically with you to launch the meeting. Zoom can accommodate many participants and you are welcome to invite others to your call by sending on the link or sharing the meeting ID. Each meeting has a unique 9, 10, or 11-digit number called a meeting ID that will be required to manually join a Zoom meeting. If you choose to invite more family and friends, please be mindful that this sort of technology can become overwhelming when too many faces and voices are coming through. You know your loved one best and we trust you’ll make a the right decision for them, relative to how many additional participants to invite.
