To: Solheim Employees, Residents, Family Members and Stakeholders
From: Sam Oden, CEO
In the last few months, we've all had to navigate unprecedented challenges that we never imagined we'd be facing. Your support, understanding and patience have filled us with immense gratitude.
Here are some updates from this week:
We continue to receive results from our second round of testing of all staff and residents. We have one additional positive case in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood. The family of this resident is already aware of the results. This resident's results were negative, but subsequently tested positive after a visit to the hospital. We continue to follow CDC and the Department of Health guidelines regarding quarantining, etc. We will keep you up to date as we receive more testing results.
Our employees enjoyed meals all week long in celebration of National Nursing Home Week, and we thank all those who helped contribute to making this happen! They are feeling the appreciation you share for their hard work of caring for our loved ones.
We have temporarily put a hold on video calls to loved ones as we focus on isolating access to certain areas. We will let you know as soon as we're able to get this schedule back up and running.
We will continue to update you as changes occur, and you may visit our website for more information at www.solheimsenior.org . If you have any questions, please direct them to Tina Antypas at email@example.com or call 323 257-7518 X225.
