It's a great pleasure to have this opportunity to communicate with you. With the sun shining noticeably longer each day, and with our darkest day again behind us (ie: Winter Solstice), we have much to look forward to - especially if you love Springs' warmer weather. Similarly, and with sincere condolences to those who have lost a loved one or a friend to COVID, I am optimistic that our darkest days will soon be over, where we can look forward to a new beginning - a new Spring, of sorts. I am excited to announce that, since my last communication, Sunny Acres and Legacy Care have remained COVID-free, amongst staff and residents. Nonetheless, I promise you that we will remain vigilant with necessary precautions and testing. Please understand we feel this abundance of caution is essential for your loved one's safety. Regarding safety and eliminating this COVID scourge, we had our first vaccination clinic this past Tuesday, and it was an incredible success! Most of our residents opted for the vaccine, and I am proud to say that an overwhelming majority of our staff received their vaccinations as well. In total over 160 people received a vaccination on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 at Sunny Acres including our Legacy Care residents and staff. Part two is scheduled for Tuesday, January 26, 2021. For your loved ones to receive this required second dose, we will need you to fill out and submit the same paperwork you submitted last time. Please reach out to Kellie Morgan The Resident Care Director at Legacy, as soon as possible if you have an questions.
At Legacy Care, big things are happening. Residents are once again able to meet in the large common room where, just today, I witnessed a resident soaking up the sun near a window, another chatting with a staff member and another with a fellow resident, and yet another just relaxing on the couch. Group dining has begun, and activity programs will be starting very soon, - all with proper social distancing, of course. Even more exciting, Kellie and her team have been researching ways to allow for COVID-safe family visits with the goal of offering this very soon.
Our hope is that the nursing home wont be far behind with these initiatives.
As always feel free to reach out to me at any time. I would love to hear from you.
