Last week's Wacky Wednesday in Independent Living included specialty corn on the cob. Residents had their choice of classic butter with salt and pepper, bacon and cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese with cilantro. Some decided to go all in and try a combination of the toppings. Wacky Wednesday continues to be a resident favorite around Independent Living as each week brings a surprise treat and fun conversation!
Last Thursday, our Recreation Therapy team kept the State Fair tradition alive in Memory Care! A historical account was narrated by staff with pictures and props from past years of the fair. Interesting facts were incorporated to educate and allow residents tore-experience their own memories of the fair. Thank you to our Recreation Therapy team for creating such a fun experience for our residents!
We wanted to provide you with an update on our COVID-19 testing. We have received the results from this week’s testing, and three employees tested positive for COVID-19.
Contact tracing was completed per CDC guidelines and one resident was exposed on campus. Per CDC guidelines, significant exposure is a total of 15 cumulative minutes or more, while within 6 feet of a person regardless of mask use. The employees who tested positive include: A campus wide Case Manager, a Home Health Aide who works in the greater community and a dietary staff member from our Jesuit Community.
Today we start another round of testing for staff working in our Skilled Nursing,Assisted Living and Memory Care buildings. We need 14 days with no positive results in order to reduce our testing frequency.
Residents in Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing will not be tested unless they become exposed, symptomatic or after hospitalizations.New admissions to our Skilled Nursing will continue to be tested.
