Dear Dosberg Manor Residents, Family Members and Responsible Parties,

We've had quite the eventful week here at Dosberg Manor. We welcomed February with friendly Groundhog Day predictions among residents. Most guessed that Punxsutawney Phil would not see his shadow, but we found out on a very snowy Tuesday that Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog emerged from his burrow and indeed saw his shadow, declaring six more weeks of winter. Hey, maybe he'll be wrong. Everyone knows we need the sun!
Many residents have enjoyed the daily news briefings in small groups, learning how to crochet with Shirley, getting active with virtual exercise classes either in groups or independently in their rooms, playing Bingo and taking advantage of virtual experiences from around the world! Pictured below, bottom right and bottom left, are two of our residents who are enjoying watching a virtual live cam of a Los Angeles kitten adoption play room, and of new baby pandas at the Georgia Zoo. How sweet is that?

Many residents also enjoyed receiving a pre-Valentine's Day floral arrangement from a loved one, courtesy of Michael's Floral Design. What a nice way to brighten someone's day!
COVID-19 Vaccine Update
If your loved received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, they have an opportunity to receive the second dose on February 25 from CVS Health, right here on campus.
Ongoing Safety Precautions
We continue to adhere to the following safety precautions to protect and care for residents and staff on campus.
  • Per Department of Health (DOH) recommendations, please do not take residents out of Dosberg Manor except for medically necessary appointments.
  • Care for residents with COVID-19 is provided within one unit to prevent the potential spread. We continue to work closely with the DOH to follow the latest recommendations and requirements.
  • Our facility uses a comprehensive, science-based 7-step disinfection program that includes a pulsed UV disinfection system proven to eliminate pathogens from surfaces in seconds. This technology is also used in many hospitals.
  • To ensure everyone’s safety, we continue to follow the DOH requirements in utilizing personal protective equipment such as face masks, eye protection, gowns, and gloves. 

At this time, we have zero positive cases of COVID-19. Restricted in-person visitation is tentatively scheduled to resume February 8, pending we have no new cases of COVID-19 for 14 consecutive days, and pending there are no changes in DOH regulations regarding visitation.
