July 10, 2020 WEEKLY Update
July 10, 2020
We continue testing our staff regularly and continue to offer testing to all residents in our community. We have one additional resident in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood that has tested positive for COVID-19.
As of today, we have 4 active positive resident cases and one active positive direct care staff member in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood, and two active positive non-direct care staff members.
Please join me in congratulating Cho Maung, who has been promoted from Nurse Manager to the role of Director of Residential Health and Wellness. Cho has been with Solheim for 19 years and will have direct oversight of all clinical services in Residential Living, Assisted Living, and Halvorson Memory Care. In addition to this, she will have oversight of the wellness program, working closely with Carmen, Wellness Center Coordinator. We are very excited to have Cho join our Leadership team here at Solheim!
John Farag, our Licensed Nursing Home Administrator is no longer with Solheim. We appreciate John's service and dedication to Solheim. I will take over as the Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, as of July 7th, until further notice. Rest assured this change does not affect the care your loved one receives here at Solheim.
Our dining department is continuing to work towards re-opening our dining room, which will include two seating times, various dining locations, and of course the proper social distancing. Although we do not yet know when this day will come, we keep close watch on the guidelines, looking for the earliest and safest opportunity to re-open socially distanced communal dining.
We continue to offer virtual tours and accept applications for residency in all areas of our 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.
I will be holding a Virtual Town Hall meeting to answer some of your questions next Wednesday July 15th at 1pm for those interested. Space will be limited, so please send your questions, and desire to join to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday July 14th at 5pm. I realize that many of you have not had a chance to actually see me as this pandemic hit soon after I came aboard! I look forward to answering your questions.
Kathy Rust will be taking over the scheduling of our video calls. Visit our new schedule at https://calendly.com/kathyr-3. We are currently accepting limited calls and appointments in Skilled Nursing.
