June 12, 2020
To: Solheim Employees, Residents, Family Members and Stakeholders
From: Sam Oden, CEO
We hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy. We express our deepest condolences to all of those who have experience loss during these very difficult times. As we mentioned in last week’s update, we will continue to provide weekly updates, in addition to our other communications.
As of today, we have no positive residents or staff in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood or in our Residential and Assisted Living Campus. We have 4 active cases of Skilled Nursing Residents and 3 active cases of Skilled Nursing direct care staff members, and 1 active case of non-direct care member, who have tested positive for COVID-19. We have no new positive cases since our last communication.
We are happy to announce that we are now accepting applications for residency in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood, as well as our Residential and Assisted Living Campus. If you would like more information, please contact our Director of Sales, Lucy Laloyan at 323 257 7518 X212 or email LucyL@solheimsenior.org.
We continue to discuss and plan for a gradual “re-opening,” which would include limited family visitations with certain social distancing and face covering requirements. We will keep you informed every step of the way as we progress towards this.
Our activities staff continue to provide one-on-one time as much as possible, including walks, exercise, and helping residents with their ‘salon and hair’ needs.
We will continue testing our staff regularly and will continue to offer testing to all residents in our community. We will be reaching out to our residents and family members for approval.
We will continue to update you as changes occur. If you have any questions, please direct them to Tina Antypas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 323 257-7518 X225.
