August 21, 2020: UPDATES Shared with Residents and Families

As we begin to wrap up the lazy days of summer and prepare for autumn, we should keep in mind that this winter we will  have to contend with COVID-19 as well as the flu virus. As in previous years, we will be offering flu vaccinations for each resident. We anticipate the vaccine will be available to us around October—and we will keep you posted. I highly recommend that everyone receive a flu shot this year.

 A Few Things We Are Working On

  •  Visits: With the weather changing we are looking at ways to continue visits with family and friends while following Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to keep everyone safe.
  • Dining: We will continue to follow CDC guidelines for safety and not offer communal dining at this time.
  •  Evening Rickshaw Rides: Julie Roh, Volunteer Coordinator, is working with volunteers and staff to coordinate rides in the early evening hours.
  • Reminder: If you are using Valley VNA services to go to and from appointments, please notify us as soon as you can so staff are able to make these arrangements.

I know there have been many changes over the last several months and just when you get used to something one way, it might change again. We are so grateful for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.

Sincerely,

Theresa Pichelmeyer, President and CEO
