ELM Mini-doc: “COVID Karaoke” at Roland Park Place

The COVID-19 crisis has been a dark time for our earth. However, it has also presented many opportunities for big and small moments of heroism, generosity, and rays of sunshine.

An employee at Roland Park Place in Baltimore is one of those rays of sunshine. His name is Darren McDonnell.

Roland Park Place is a wonderful not-for-profit senior living community that has been a client for years. They asked us to come by and film some video updates COVID-19 situation. That’s when we learned how Darren entertains the residents and we knew we wanted to document and share it with others.

Watch our Mini-doc below to see how one man is transforming Roland Park Place into Radio City Music Hall. If you like it, please share it. Good news is sorely needed in the world.  

Our treasured seniors are more isolated than ever before and many are unable to leave their rooms or have visitors.

Please love, care for, and support our elders with your whole heart and continue to follow the guidelines of experts and health officials to save tens of thousands of precious lives.

Thank you to our friends and partners at Roland Park Place. They are the only full-service, accredited not-for-profit Life Plan retirement community in Baltimore City and a leader in aging services for older adults and their families. Learn more about them at rolandparkplace.org.
