Information for Valley VNA Visitors

Updates Shared with Residents and Families – January 15, 2021

Dear Resident and Family Member,

We shared this information with you a few days ago and want to share it with you one more time:

Morton Pharmacy will be here next week, Thursday, January 21 to administer the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
At this time we do not know which vaccine we will receive. Depending on what vaccine we receive, the second dose will be scheduled for either February 11 or February 18, we will be sure to let you know, once we know.

Consent Forms as well as both Pfizer and Moderna fact sheets are available for you to pick up at the front entrance of Valley VNA. Please take the time to read through both of the fact sheets. The Consent Form must be returned to us by Wednesday, January 20. We need this completed form on file before you receive the vaccine.

COVID-19 Testing
Working within the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC and Department of Health Services, we are reassessing our testing program. There will be no testing during the week of January 18 and we will notify you of the next COVID-19 test date.
Please contact me or Angela Franz if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Theresa Pichelmeyer
President and CEO

Dear VNA Family,

Thank you for all that you are, all that you are, all that you did to care for my Mom, June, over the past year.  Your staff, Peggy, Nadine, Michelle and Gwen and more more were special caregivers and nurses, and she (my Mom) loved you all.

Gratefully,

Dad never expected to be treated like he was special, but that how everyone made him feel.  So many would check on him and be concerned if he didnt show up for an activity.  He loved the camaraderie he developed with so many of you.  Thank yoiu to everyone – the love and care you gave Dad will never be forgotten.

I am writing to announce that my last day will be September 4, 2015.  This was not an easy decision for me because of the passion I have for this job.  Over the past two years, I can honestly say that this has been the best job I have ever had, I love that I can say this about Valley VNA. When I took this position, I had very little experience caring for the elderly and others with special needs and in all this time, I have learned so much.  I have learned that what I do does make a difference.  Lastly, I have learned that the longer a person lives, the more reasons they find to be grateful for their life, so I should be grateful for mine and not take anything or anyone for granted. I have made special bonds and relationships with each of my clients in the Valley VNA In-Home Care program over the past two years, some more than others, but each holds a special place in my heart.  The endless laughter, old stories, and and even through the loss and bad times, is something I will take with me where ever I go and for those reasons, I feel like I am a better caregiver.  I want to thank the VNA for giving me this opportunity and just know that I would and do recommend the Valley VNA to anyone who is interested and I wish nothing but the best for everyone!

Sincerely,

Valley VNA Team,

Thank you so much for all of the kindness and compassion you all showed our mom Lois O. Your staff and caregivers are highly skilled and professional people.  Your help allowed us to care for her at home which is what she and our Dad always wanted.  I can’t say enough thanks to show our appreciation!!!
