Dear Family & Friends,
This has been a summer like no other, hasn’t it!
Our latest Pandemic project has been the testing of our staff. It has been mandated that all staff be tested. So far, the results have met our hopes – all negative.
The Residents’ stress is much relieved now that they can go outside and can have some contact with their families. Because of the hot weather, the scheduled SNF visits are usually in the morning. They are also getting quite adept at on-line shopping. Every day, their packages pour in from retailers.
A few volunteers have been working in the garden. We do hope we can soon welcome our friends back into the Home. We truly miss them.
We do hope to go ahead with our Golf Outing, Monday September 14. It is an annual contact with some very good friends.
The SNF Residents are now enjoying their new HVAC Units that are energy efficient.
Despite the pandemic, we hope you are able to enjoy some summer treats. Some people are even starting to speak of the positive effects of these months. Our Holy Father recently said it is a time given to us to “rediscover the concreteness of little things, small gestures of attention we can offer those close to us, our family, our friends. We must understand that in small things lies our treasure,"
Sr Genevieve Regina and all the Little Sisters
