Residents, Families and Partners,
As many of you are probably aware now, the virus progression seems to be unique to each individual with some with little to no symptoms, others have a longer recovery and still others needing a higher level of care. We continue care of our COVID positive residents as they are recovering from the virus or, if asymptomatic, we have waited out the recommended period of isolation to prevent any possible infection of other residents.
We continue to test residents as recommended by their primary care physician or following local health department or CDC guidance. Our numbers of recovering, positives and negatives fluctuate on a regular basis, but we stay in contact with our families/POAs about any health or behavioral changes of residents, including the progress of those that were found to be positive for the virus.
We work hard to provide socialization opportunities for our residents that continue to be isolated to protect them from the continued threat from the virus. We are working on an upcoming gardening project. We will send out a separate email with more details and ways for your family to become involved as soon as the temperature drop a little. We thank you for all that you continue to do to stay in contact with your loved ones and show our hard working staff appreciation for all that they do for our residents.
Please continue to reach out with questions, concerns, or requests for assistance. If you have particular concerns about your loved ones’ condition, especially related to COVID-19, please contact us, and we can work with you and your loved one about the need for testing and arranging to do it in house to prevent any unnecessary exposure leaving the building.
As always, if you have an immediate concern, please email Tristess or myself. Our phone lines are often busy, especially after hours and on weekends.
Carolyn Lynch, Executive Director
