A COVID-19 UPDATE FROM THE HOME

WEBSITE UPDATE: September 11, 2020

Even as we here at the Home continue to deal with the impact of the COVID virus pandemic, we would like to take a moment in this posting to remember the 19th anniversary of the attack on the United States on September 11th. It is with profound gratitude and sadness that we honor the brave men and women who sacrificed everything to protect and save many American lives that day. We know what true heroes they were.

We are always pleased to report that all our residents remain negative for COVID-19; we have been extremely fortunate to remain in this status since late June. In last week’s letter, I advised you that one staff member on the assisted living facility side of the Home had tested positive for the virus; this person remains in quarantine at this time as do the residents on Shoemaker Court. This week’s staff testing revealed that an employee on the administrative team also tested positive for the virus. This employee is asymptomatic but, as per policy and CDC guidelines, will not return to work until cleared. Because the employee is not directly involved in resident care, the test results do not disrupt communal dining or activities on the nursing facility side.

Our efforts to refurbish and repair sections of the Home damaged from the July flood continue to move ahead. The patience and good spirits demonstrated by all of the residents and the staff have certainly helped everyone to deal with this latest emergency just as we would expect…we are all together in this as a Lisner team!

Please continue to practice the “3 Ws,” to wait at a distance, wash your hands, and wear a mask and help us all stay safe and well.

We would like to urge all of you who find yourselves shopping online, possibly substantially more during this time of confinement, to help us further by ordering products via smile.amazon.com, When you do, AmazonSmileFoundation will donate .05% of your total purchase price to the Home; just select the Abraham and Laura Lisner Home (aka Lisner-Louise-Dickson-Hurt Home) as the charitable organization you wish to receive donations. The staff here at the Home are themselves purchasing more and more essential equipment and health care products online, and will certainly be continuing to do so for the foreseeable future.

We continuously strive to provide the best care for the residents. Our mission to give the residents the best quality of life possible remains our number one priority. Now, more than ever, a donation from you could help us continue to provide the essential care needed for our residents during this difficult time.
