Dear Residents and Families,
Thank you to all of you for your continued understanding and kindness and during this unprecedented time. We are all doing our very best, personally and professionally, to minimize the spread of Coronavirus and keep our residents safe and healthy. Our staff has been receiving extensive, ongoing education about infection control, hand hygiene and preventing the spread of illness. At this time, we do not have any confirmed COVID-19 cases in any of our Legacy Health Services facilities. The active screening protocols and visitation restrictions have helped us keep our residents healthy. Over the next few days, we will be distributing masks, along with other personal protective equipment, to all of our employees to wear in patient care areas. This is being done in an abundance of caution as we know that the staff is the strongest link our residents have to the general public right now. We feel that in conjunction with our other infection control policies, the use of masks will greatly decrease the risk of passing illness from staff to residents.
We have received great feedback from all of you about the Skype calls so far. Please continue to reach out to us via our facility Gmail account to schedule future calls. We have ordered more facility devices to accommodate more calls. If you are interested in getting a smart phone or tablet for your loved one to use exclusively, please reach out to our Skype team (via the Gmail account) and they can help coordinate delivery and setting up the account. For detailed instructions, please click HERE.
To those that have reached out about making and sending cards and letters to our residents and staff, thank you! Healthcare workers around the world are trying to balance their responsibilities at home and at work, and that can be very stressful. We are so proud of our team and how they are coming together to support our residents and ensure their safety. If your family would like to send cards for residents who do not have a lot of family support, or as a thank you to our staff for their ongoing dedication as caregivers, please send those to:
For resident cards- Attn: Activities Director
For staff cards- Attn: Human Resources
Thank you for your support while we all do our best to provide a safe and happy home for our residents!
