    St. Louis (KMOV) — People around the region have tried to find creative ways to connect with loved ones who are on lockdown in local retirement and nursing homes.

At Anthology of Clayton View, they are connecting residents to their families through Facetime and Skype. Some seniors are using iPads for the first time to catch up and check in with their children and loved ones.

The long term care facility is also doing different types of engagement, including Social Distancing Happy Hours where the residents are staying safely six feet apart.
