My how things have changed over the past few weeks. My heart was heavy as we locked the doors and put visitor restrictions in place. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you, the family and friends, to not be able to come to the facility to visit your loved ones. The restrictions we are following is the guidance from CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid) and Iowa Department of Public Health. As severe as they may seem, the restrictions are in place to protect the vulnerable population we serve.
Signs of springs are everywhere, and we cannot wait for the sunshine and the warm weather that will soon follow. As the weather allows, we will be outside to enjoy the fresh air. In the meantime, the activity department is finding fun and creative ways to offer engaging activities while following social distancing. If you have not, but would like to connect with your loved one through video chat, please reach out and we can assist with setting that up.
The Annual Easter Egg Hunt is CANCELLED at this time. Due to the current circumstances surrounding the pandemic, we want everyone to stay home and stay safe.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at (563)547-2364.
