Update from Administrator – June 23, 2020
June 23, 2020
June 18 began National C N A Week. There are not enough words to describe what these individuals do for our residents by keeping them safe, healthy, and happy. There are many jobs that these individuals could choose from, but they have chosen this profession due to their compassion and loyalty to healthcare. So, during this week and beyond, remember to thank a C N A whenever you have the opportunity. Most of their work and caring go unnoticed but their pride is in their residents. To all C N A’s out there keep up the good work and we thank you for your efforts. We have added your messages to the CNA board please send messages and words of encouragement to email@example.com
In addition to ongoing virtual and window visits, we have our outdoor patio visits. These visits require appropriate PPE (masks) to be worn at all times and a social distance of 6 feet between you and your loved ones for the entirety of the visit. The specific guidelines and details regarding perimeter visits can be found on our website and Facebook page.
Please remember that the perimeter visits must be pre-scheduled to ensure safe and healthy visits for you, the residents, and our staff. You can schedule a visit by calling Sharon, Director of recreation at 203-459-5152 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please remember to call if you can no longer make your visit.
Last week, the state DPH and members of the National Guard visited our center for a monitoring visit and found us to be in compliance. We continue to follow all CDC and state guidelines and receive regular updates on new guidelines that are offered. We look forward to their visit this week.
Attached to this email please find the recreation calendar, staff email list and resident consent form in order to share your loved ones pictures on Facebook.
As a reminder, our next “Town Hall” meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 25th at 4:00p.m. We will discuss more detailed information during this time. We encourage any residents and family members to contact me with any questions you have about the care we are offering. Our commitment is to be as transparent as possible and work to address any issues that arise. This is an incredibly challenging time and we will continue to do all we can to get through this, together. A reminder that resident-specific questions cannot be answered during these calls or on our Facebook page so please reach out to us directly if needed.
Thank you and please stay safe and healthy! It’s going to be a hot one today so please stay hydrated!
