Dear Dosberg Manor Residents, Family Members and Responsible Parties,

We hope you are having a great week and are staying warm! Dosberg Manor residents spent their week enjoying piano playing with Ruth, participating in virtual exercise groups, taking virtual tours of the zoo, crafting with Shirley, and playing bingo. As we approach Thanksgiving next week, we took the time reminisce about family traditions, and to reflect on what we are most thankful for...
And, much to our pleasant surprise, we received several bouquets of flowers from a resident's family member as a token of appreciation. They brought smiles to everyone's faces!

Visitation Guidance
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the DOH has shared guidance discouraging residents from leaving Dosberg Manor for gatherings. This guidance aims to keep residents and staff safe and healthy, for as of this week, much of Erie County has been designated as an orange zone as community spread of COVID-19 has increased.
If a resident must leave for a medically necessary appointment, the following safety protocols are recommended: wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing.

As a reminder, any resident who leaves the facility is required by the DOH to quarantine for 10 days upon their return to Dosberg Manor. If you need to arrange for a resident to leave the facility, please contact Dana Zientara at [email protected], (716) 639-3311 ext. 2505. We take COVID-19 very seriously and appreciate your understanding.
During the Thanksgiving season, and always, we are thankful for the support you have provided to both your loved one and our employees.
