Thank you all for the positive energy, good will, and appreciation that friends and families have conveyed to both Residents and Staff! It means a great deal. As you see from our frequent Facebook posts, life and activities go on as best they can at Parsons House!
The latest Facebook post shows off some of the colorful fashion design of facemasks made for our staff. We want to again thank all the members of St. Michaels, St. Roberts and of course, our neighbors, St. Vincent de Paul who sewed these cloth masks. You are all difference makers!
We want to update you on some of the practices that we are doing to keep everyone safe. All residents and staff have masks. As the recent Facebook posts suggest, Staff have and are wearing both mask and other PPE when they are in contact with a resident. All residents have their temperature taken at least once a day and staff have their temperature taken at the beginning of their work shift. The use of Hand Sanitizer is actively used and practiced. Telehealth connections for services are in full use.
We are hiring and increasing our overall labor force! As our processes have changed, the demand for additional labor has changed as well. We are hiring for additional servers, housekeepers and activities personnel. To complement our expanded use of telehealth services, we are looking for an additional LPN/RN. So please tell a friend or go to our webpage to complete a work application! www.parsonshouseseniorliving.com
Resident isolation is particularly tough on our residents that do not have Grandchildren or Great Grandchildren. Become a virtual Grandchild or Great-grandchild by adopting one of our Residents virtually. Please contact Julie Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
We cannot thank our staff enough for their dedication and sacrifice to their profession, the Residents of Parsons House and to each other. As a testament to their professionalism, our current policy is they stay at home
if they are not feeling well. One would think this policy would easily get abused. That has not been the case!
In closing, we still have a long way to go before we can stop the practice of isolation. Please keep your cards, packages, emails, phone calls, Facetime activities and positive vibes and good wishes coming. We can get through this together!
