Dear St. Paul Hermitage Families,
I am extremely grateful that Holy Name School will be loaning us six iPads. This is a huge blessing. The iPads help us to connect your loved ones with you during this time of restricted visitation. We can use the iPads for Facetime or Skype. If you would like to sign up for Facetime or Skype please call 317-786-2261 ex. 226. Today, our community enjoyed doorway Pokeno, exercise and a warm apple crisp for our afternoon snack. We participated in Mass and The Way of the Cross through our in-home television station. Our Activity Directors and Pastoral Care Associate are doing a wonderful job of coming up with different ways to provide meaningful engagement for our residents each day. Your loved ones are doing well.
I am daily attending webinars with CMS and Leading Age on regulatory changes. Our staff is updated on any new recommendations that we are given during our daily huddles. We continue to assess our residents throughout the day for signs and symptoms of COVID 19. Our staff is screened prior to starting their shift. We remain healthy. I hope that is the case for all of you as well. I will continue to update you if anything changes. Know that we pray for the health of our community, family and world each day at Mass.
If you have any questions or if can assist you in any way, please contact me at 317-213-8430 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sr. Heather Jean Foltz, OSB
