Dear Family and Friends of Tabor Home:
From a Grateful Family
"We continue to support you, and KNOW that you are doing an excellent job in outstandingly difficult times. I can’t imagine how heavy your hearts are for the Residents, your coworkers and your own families. Some people have grumbled to the Press but I am positive that that is a minority who are very very fearful and reacting out of fear. We are not able to care for our loved ones at home...we don’t have the strength, the equipment and the knowledge. You do, and that is why we are so grateful they are at Tabor. Just keep going an hour at a time, a day at a time and there will be an end to this. We are praying that God allows that to be soon. You will wear a badge of honour in our hearts at the end of this, that you protected many lives. Yes, there have sadly been those that have passed but if your dear residents were in the larger community many many more would have succumbed to this sneaky virus.
We are so sorry for those of you who have had the virus and its affects on your families. Trust many of you are feeling better. Thank you for putting your lives at risk for our loved ones. Take heart and go a minute at a time.
We have been very grateful for the immediate responses whenever we have contacted Tabor about my Dad. We have always felt “in touch” with you and that answers are clear, kind and professional. Yes praying the time hurries on so we can leave 2020 behind. Again our grateful thanks."

There are no new numbers to report today. The important thing to remember is numbers are not everything. What matters is that every resident, family, and staff member is affected by this virus right now and every life has value. Every life matters, every life is significant. Every life is treasured. Every loss is a tragedy and one that is felt deeply and weighs heavily on all of our hearts.
May we continue to hold on to Him in this crisis and believe for healing in Tabor Home.
A Prayer From Dan Levitt, Executive Director
In seeking courage and comfort, I studied a passage from Yeshayahu, Isaiah Chapter 40 in particular I found inspiration from lines 26 – 31 and wrote the following prayer based on this passage…
May we lift up your eyes on high and see greatness, strength and completeness.
May we all find strength and support those who are weary.
May we lift up those who may stumble.
May we find understanding in what is incomprehensible.
May we find hope and renewal of our vigor.
May we raise our spirits on the wings of an eagle.
May we find the resolve knowing others are running alongside us.
May we walk alongside the needy and not tire.
May we know a better tomorrow.
And may all our words of blessing always be heard.
