What's New?
This week we officially began socially distanced dining for A1 and B1 residents, and A2 and B2 residents will be next week. We will continue to do this for lunch twice a week in the dining room for 16 residents at a time. Residents are seated six feet apart with groups of four for socialization. Masks are to be worn when they enter and leave the dining room.
We will be celebrating our wonderful nurses starting Thursday, May 6th and ending May 12th for Nurse Appreciation Week. We would love to share notes of appreciation and thanks to our nursing staff and nurse manager. If you would like to share a special note to our nursing team, please send an email to me ([email protected]) and copy in Jeanne Harmor ([email protected]). We will be asking residents for positive comments as well and will share with nurses on the 12th. We plan on having some special activities each day and will be sharing photos in our family letters.
Last week we celebrated Deb, our Office Coordinator, on Administrative Professional’s Day and thanked her for all she does for our team and our residents! We also showed thanks and appreciation to our Dosberg Managers with a surprise lunch this week. They all are so dedicated and genuinely care about your family members.
We will be spending much more time outside when the weather is nice. We recommend sending in hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen for your loved ones.
In the last few weeks we sent out a letter about Family Choice. We hope you are considering this program, which officially starts May 1st. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
