McConaughey wasn’t the only one getting in on the fun; his family joined in to entertain the residents.
“Thank you to Matthew, his wife Camila, and his mom Kay for hosting our residents for a few rounds of virtual bingo!” the facility said. “Our residents had a great time playing, and they loved talking with Matthew about his family heritage and his favorite drink.”
Senior centers are getting creative to keep their residents active and engaged since the coronavirus outbreak has caused many facilities to go into lockdown.
Along with virtual meetups, The Enclave has hosted parties in which it encourages residents to dance from their patios. In a video posted on Facebook, staff is seen singing and dancing along with them from the courtyard area, while, of course, observing social distancing.MORE NEWS: 2 Teenaged Brothers Dead, Another Teen Injured After Shooting In Arlington
