Dear Families of our Residents,
I am happy to share with you the latest happenings in our Home, as I know so well how eager you are to receive news about the Residents and all those caring for them
We are very grateful to have completed the Pfizer vaccination program. It went smoothly, reactions were minimal, and it has given us a greater sense of security and peace. The pandemic restrictions and guidelines remain in place, according to the CDC regulations. We are hoping that visiting will resume soon; as the index of the virus goes down in our county and we are free of quarantine, we should be able to open visiting again.
Covid-19 testing has been done twice a week for the past months; things have been going so well that we had hoped to be able to do testing once a week.
However last Friday one person tested positive, so bi-weekly testing will continue. Our Residents continue to test negative, thank God.
Retirement Home TV has been set-up in the Home and should be running throughout the house by mid-week. We are happy with such an enthusiastic response from you, our families, and we are sure the Residents will enjoy all the new channels this program presents. Our chapel will be available to every Resident and the Activities Department will also have their own channel to do many new and exciting presentations. If you have not received a copy of the TV channels, please let Oglanda know and she will be glad to send you a copy.
We plan to continue gradually admitting new Residents into the Home and the Apartments, following the safety precautions required by CDC. We are eager to continue our mission of welcoming the elderly, with love and respect, following the charism of our Mother Foundress, St. Jeanne Jugan.
Thank you for your support, and the many thoughtful things you are doing for our Home. Your donations are most gratefully received and help us so much. Because of Covid-19, our Sisters are not able to go out collecting, and the financial loss incurred by empty beds has been keenly felt. With God’s ever watchful care, we know He will always take care of us.
The Sisters join me in assuring you of our prayers; we wish you all God’s blessings during this Holy Season of Lent.
Mother Paul, lsp
