We are still safe at home
As we continue to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to let you know that our Residents remain safe at Home and cared for as our Mission dictates.
Over a month ago, we advised you as to early implementation of the preventive measures taken at Queen of Peace to protect our Residents. These have included the initiation of our emergency management system, eliminating all visitation to our Home, restricting access to our Home in the delivery of supplies and individual health screening of our Sisters and dedicated Staff through our more secure and medically staffed lobby. We continue to fully document these activities as per the regulations of the New York State Health Department.
We continue to secure supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and alcohol-based hand gel, as we consciously use what is needed to prevent the spread of infection. Our hand sanitizer stations throughout the Residence are used extensively.
Under the direction of our Executive Chef, Eric Maack of Unidine Corporation, we maintain our full dining menu and our Residents are served their meals in the privacy of their own rooms. We are becoming experts in “social distancing.” As we previously told you, the laundry continues to be done and our Residence remains on our own vigilant cleaning and housekeeping schedules every day.
Our Residents continue to receive the medical care and medicine they need. They are actively assessed by the dedicated Nursing Staff twice daily to be sure to catch any signs of illness in the earliest stages. We continue to add to our stockpile of emergency supplies by making several large purchases of food, canned goods, water, paper products and cleaning supplies.
We are most grateful to our steadfast donors who have provided us with in-kind supplies and much-needed revenue to make the additional purchases we need to make. Thank you!
Our spirit remains strong and our trust in God’s Providence and Protection has never wavered. We continue to pray for the safety and good health of all of you and ask that a cure for this virus may be found quickly.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. These are trying times but together, we will get through this difficulty because we are not only partners in a Mission, but family members sticking together.
