May 7 Update: We're holding steady!

Hello friends,

We hope this message finds you doing well.

At this point in time, we still only have the one confirmed COVID-19 case that was identified in our Health & Rehab Center, located on Hershberger Road.

Upon learning the news of the case last Friday (5/1/2020), our team immediately went to work contact tracing and identified individuals who had been in contact with this team member.  These individuals were fellow non-direct care team members, who were immediately tested and sent home until further notice.

We are pleased to share all the tests came back negative, so we are holding steady with just the one confirmed COVID-19 case so far.  

In addition to continuing our screening process for team members, know that we are also closely monitoring our residents.  At this time, we have no individuals exhibiting symptoms or signs of the virus.

Know that your prayers, well-wishes and encouragement for our community are very much appreciated!

Lastly, we want to remind you of our Mother's Day Care Package that's available, at cost, should you want to send your mom or loved one a special gift for this weekend.  The tote is $16, and contains 1(28pk) herbal tea, 2 brownies, 2 muffins, 10 truffles, a large chocolate lollipop and 1 stuffed animal.  Substitutions are available to address dietary concerns you or your loved one may have.  Totes will be delivered Friday, May 8th so please place your order ASAP if you plan to take advantage of this offering!  Here's the link to access the online order form:  https://www.friendship.us/peace-of-mind-care-package

Again, know that we are doing all we can to protect the health and well-being of everyone at all of our campuses.  We will continue to keep you updated in the coming days.

Take care and stay well,

Joe Hoff
President and Chief Executive Officer
