Hello from Westfield Quality Care of Aurora.
Staff and residents from Westfield wish you a very Happy New Year. Here are some quotes to take into the new year:
Approach the new year with resolve to find the opportunities hidden in each new day by Michael Josephson.
Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go for it was imperfect and thank God that it can go by an unknown author.
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot by Michael Altshuler.
In our perfect ways. In the ways we are beautiful. In the ways we are human. We are here. Happy New Year’s. Let’s make it ours by Beyonce`.
For our COVID update this week we had a bit of a disappointing week. We had five staff that have tested positive for COVID and as of right now we have had seven residents that have also tested positive. The good news is that everyone has mild to no symptoms. This always makes me feel better when symptoms are mild. We ask that everyone keep the visiting to a minimum while we work on getting through this COVID cycle. We will continue to do testing until we have 14 days of all negative tests. If you choose to come and visit a resident that is positive, we will have you wear full PPE to go into the resident room. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you for all your help in keeping our resident safe. I will continue to add this bit of infection control reminders, wash your hands frequently, and use hand sanitizer often. If you are having any COVID symptoms please stay home and take care of yourself, we will take good care of the residents, so you do not have to worry.
As the holidays are upon us, please be considerate of our resident population when visiting. If you are not feeling well or having any type of COVID symptoms, please do not visit. Our goal is to keep the residents safe, and we need everyone’s help for this to work. We can always help with a phone call if you want to make contact and are not feeling well. Please have a safe and happy holiday season.
Happy New Year.
