Our Response to Coronavirus
Updated: July 22, 2020
Dear Friends and Families,
As we've watched the COVID-19 situation continue to evolve in both our individual towns and throughout the country, we want you to know that we understand the great sense of uncertainty you might be feeling. In addition to the serious health concerns that follow this disease, we are all now starting to see and feel a much wider impact on our lives and society. Often, the days result in more questions than answers as we await the next CDC or governmental guideline or mandate.
However, while this extraordinary time produces difficult days and more questions, there is a constant...we continue to witness encouraging acts of love and compassion producing joy among our residents and team members. Although the current reality of restricted visitation is certainly difficult for both our residents and families, we strive to engage and encourage the residents throughout the day, every day. We are so thankful and blessed that during this unusual time, we get to serve our amazing residents! We GET to do this!
We Are So Very Grateful for Our Residents!
We must ALSO acknowledge our gratefulness for our front-line hero teams: the caregivers who have overcome their own fears and concerns to continue to serve our residents; our nurses who have faithfully and tirelessly continued to lead each and every day through new and unexpected challenges; our dining services teams that continue to serve healthy meals, our maintenance teams that clean and maintain, and our administrative team who have broken new barriers with innovative ways to give our residents and families a sense of normalcy and calm through safe visitation, regular updates, and ongoing protocol improvements.
We Are So Very Grateful to Our Teams Who Continue to Make a Difference Every Day!
While this global pandemic is truly unprecedented, it is still no threat to our unwavering commitment to serve the greatest generation with honor, respect, faith, and integrity. We want to reassure you of this commitment; we are resilient, continually focused on serving, and with God's help we will overcome this challenge like many others before this one. Also, in our hyper-focused efforts to serve safely, we continue to source and provide adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) for our residents and teams.
In addition, your support for us, for our teams, and for our mission helps to motivate our entire team to run with endurance the race that is set before us. We now recognize this race will be a marathon and not a sprint. Nevertheless, we are prepared and committed to running this race well!
We Are So Very Grateful for Our Families Who Trust us with the Care of Their Loved Ones!
As people of faith, we remain steadfast in our commitment to constant and earnest prayer for God's protection and the well-being of our Legacy Senior Living residents, team members, families, and friends. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.
Please continue to visit our Facebook pages to see the smiling, engaged faces of our residents.
We look forward to a day in the near future when we can be together CELEBRATING LOVE AND LIFE.
