Update from Administrator – February 12, 2021

Good morning Family Members and Responsible Parties,

This email is sent to provide you with an update on the number of Covid positive resident and staff in the building. At this time we have 4 residents on the Covid Positive Unit.

All staff who previously tested positive have returned to work.  As of this morning, we have not had any staff test positive for this week.


The 3rd CVS Vaccination Clinic was held on February 9, 2021. Thirteen residents and eighteen staff received their second vaccine.

We were very pleased with the Team from CVS. They were well organized, kind and very respectful of all the residents and staff. They realized the level of fear was higher in some individuals than others, and took their time to make the experience as gentle as possible.


Visiting Update

Window Visits and Virtual Visits continue to bring many moments of joy to our residents. Thank you for your cooperation with the visits.

Our Compassionate Care and End of Life Visits also have brought together many family members with loved ones in need of their comfort and support. Thank you for your cooperation with the regulations to ensure safe visits for your loved ones and for yourselves. Please know we truly appreciate your understanding.



A new Housekeeper has joined the team. Her name is Lirie Kaliqi. Lirie enjoys working with the residents and engaging in conversations with them whenever she enters their rooms. Hopefully, as visiting restriction ease, you will have a chance to meet Lirie and see all the staff who provide much needed services to our residents.

Our weekly phone call will be held today at 1:00 PM. Our team looks forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you may have.
