Residents at Murano Senior Living in downtown Seattle are putting the ‘social’ in social distancing. While senior living communities across the country are responding to rapidly changing social distancing guidelines, the team at Murano is doing it all with a big dose of Five-Star Fun.

Keeping Residents Together, While Staying Apart

So, how do you continue to build a community where residents are active and engaged while also keeping everyone physically apart? It seems like an impossibility. But, meeting challenges is what the team at Murano does best. At Murano, the staff knows that residents can still have social interaction while physically distancing.

Every week, residents at Murano enjoy happy hour in their own apartments. The staff delivers handcrafted cocktails to each resident’s doorstep and then the community gathers online for a virtual happy hour. Using video chat, residents share favorite jokes, memories, and their life stories. Residents also tune in to Murano’s state-of-the-art kitchen to watch the chef prepare delicious meals before sampling the meals as they are delivered to their doors.

To keep residents engaged physically, Murano offers PrimeFit, a nationally branded program and leader in senior fitness and wellness exclusive to Leisure Care communities. Now PrimeFit is online and residents stay active in their apartments by tuning in at their convenience. Additionally, book clubs, online lectures, comedy shows, and cooking classes are now online for residents to interact with each other. Residents are also able to tend to Murano’s rooftop garden while following social distancing guidelines and wearing masks to stay healthy.

The Murano team finds ways for residents to continue cultivating meaningful connections while also engaging the mind, body, and spirit. Learn more about Murano’s flexible month to month rental option for all levels of care. Murano is accepting move ins with heightened screening protocols. Murano has put together several virtual events to answer your questions and get you started on your journey to live better than ever. Schedule a virtual tour by visiting their website at or contact Murano.

Many have…
