July 24, 2020 WEEKLY Update
July 24, 2020
To: Solheim Employees, Residents, Family Members and Stakeholders
From: Sam Oden, CEO of Solheim Senior Community
It has been a week since our last communication, and I’m happy to report that we have had no new positive cases since then. Regular testing continues for all staff, and we offer testing to all residents in our community. As of today, we currently have 3 active positive resident cases in our Halvorson Memory Care Neighborhood.
Solheim and your leadership team is in regular communication with the local Department of Health, often several times a day. We are following the guidelines they set, and within the bounds of those guidelines we continue to explore possibilities for allowing some sort of structured, in-person visits in the near future. We are also exploring opportunities to provide safe beauty and barbershop services on campus.
I am also happy to report that we are making headway in our ongoing efforts to improve our technology and thereby (among other things) allow more opportunities for virtual engagement between our residents and their family members. Kathy Rust continues to schedule video calls, and you can access our new schedule at https://calendly.com/kathyr-3. We appreciate your flexibility as we’ve had to pause and restart our video calls for various reasons. We also continue to offer virtual tours and accept new 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 LucyL@solheimsenior.org.
I remain tremendously thankful for the support of our staff, board, residents, family members and friends of Solheim during this time. Although this year has been unexpected in many ways, Solheim has a strong focus on our mission, and we will stay committed to our faith and guiding principles while we continue to weather this storm.
