The Holiday Season is Upon Us
Dear Families, Friends, and Residents,
The Holiday season is a typical time to look back on the past year. This past year has been difficult, strange, and overwhelming for all. I truly believe it has been the hardest on our residents, and all who love them. I would like to extend a message of gratitude to you all for your tremendous levels of understanding and support these past eight months. We recognize that the Holiday season is an important time for many people, which makes our current situation all the more difficult. This Holiday Season, as we navigate the most crucial time since the beginning of the pandemic, we greatly appreciate your continued understanding.
Though this Holiday Season may look and feel different than usual, we are dedicated to maintaining the highest level of normalcy and holiday spirit possible. As you can see throughout this newsletter, our team at The Neighbors has been working hard to find fun and safe ways to bring holiday cheer to our residents. Even though we know you all miss your loved ones dearly, we hope that you find some peace knowing there are many people here caring for them and attempting to make the most of this Holiday Season for them.
Due to State and Federal guidance, we are still unable to facilitate in-person visitation. We are continuing to facilitate virtual visits throughout the Holidays. The Neighbors is committed to providing our residents and families a safe way to be “together” this Holiday Season. Though “together” may look different this year, we hope that you and your loved ones can enjoy a visit through the use of technology.
Through all of the devastation and loss this year, it is more important than ever to bring Joy into the lives of those around us. I encourage you all to find a way to safely spread Joy this season, as we all know everyone could use a little extra this year.
I wish you and your family a safe and wonderful holiday season and look forward to the coming year. If you have any questions or concerns, I would love to hear from you. Please do not hesitate to call us at 715-232-2661.
