We are celebrating Fall & Football in Neosho. In anticipation of the start of football season, the residents enjoyed a rousing game of football cornhole. Since it was Game Day, everyone came decked out in their team's colors, even the residents wore their favorite colors. It is no surprise that most of the colors were red and yellow. To enjoy the game, baggies of game day trail mix were passed out because it is a must to have a snack when you watch football. ... See MoreSee Less

We celebrated Grandparents day a little early at Eudora. Since things are a little different this year we decided to do milk shakes, finger foods, bingo and a movie for those who didn't want to join bingo {residents choice}. Activity Director, Lori Balderston, and Restorative Aide, Wendy say "Our main goal is to keep our residents spirits up and try to keep everyone smiling! and... we nailed it!" ... See MoreSee Less

A LETTER FROM OUR CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER:

September 4, 2020

Dear Residents, Families, Friends and Visitors,
In March of this year we were asked to spend two weeks flattening the curve of this pandemic. Each Medicalodges, Inc. community accepted that challenge and the obligation to protect our residents and clients as best we could while knowing very little about this virus. We could not have anticipated that as we headed into the fall and Labor Day weekend, we would still be in a state of restriction and mitigation in a world that looks nothing like it did before March.
Like most all organizations across the country, Medicalodges, Inc. communities have not been left untouched by COVID-19. We have had several communities experience residents and/or employees who have tested positive for the virus and the cascade of mitigation efforts that ensue in order to prevent as much as possible further spread. We have experienced challenges and have had to be creative in sourcing and maintaining our protective equipment, supplies and sometimes even certain food items. We have had great support from our contractors and vendors in making sure we have all we need to continue to care for our residents and clients with little to no noticeable impact on them.
This has certainly been a difficult time. We are grateful for the ongoing patience of our residents, clients and family members as we navigate the ever changing guidance, recommendations, requirements and reopening processes of all our governing agencies and health authorities. The most recent change in guidance will require us to conduct routine testing on all employees of our skilled nursing facilities, sometimes as frequently as twice weekly depending on the rates of COVID positive cases in the surrounding county. This new level of testing will certainly have an impact on our reopening processes and we are currently making arrangements to comply with the testing requirement. We are also seeing local health authorities extending or implementing new restrictions on visiting in long term care and assisted living facilities, preventing us from moving forward with reopening as we would like. In the communities where we can, we are moving forward with reopening, but also acknowledge that circumstances can and do change rapidly within the facility and greater community forcing us to adapt even the best laid plans.
We know the limitations on visiting have been the single most challenging aspect of this pandemic for our residents, clients, families and even our employees. We ask that you please adhere to our visiting protocols and restrictions as these are in place for the purpose of protecting all residents and clients entrusted to our care. Even a single breach in our protocols can have a devastating effect in our community. All locations can accommodate compassionate care visits. Compassionate care visits are for the purpose of visiting under special circumstances, and may be arranged by calling the community directly. Compassionate care visits will not be arranged for the purposes of routine visiting, are entirely at the discretion of the community leadership team and will be based on the specific needs of the resident or client. We have also secured additional technology in the form of tablet devices through funds made available from our state agencies. We are working now to distribute a limited number of these devices to our locations to further facilitate virtual visiting until such time as we are able to allow unrestricted visiting.
We are also so very grateful for our employees who continue to dedicate their service to our residents and clients despite such challenging circumstances encountered on a daily basis. We were recently able to provide a significant Hero Bonus to our employees to show our deepest appreciation for their continued dedication and we are hopeful we can provide another Hero Bonus in the near future. Our employees remain our single greatest asset and no amount of appreciation expressed will ever be enough to fully acknowledge their efforts.
Additional updates will be posted to our Medicalodges Inc. website at www.medicalodges.com. You can also find updates regarding specific Medicalodges communities at their individual websites. We will all get through this together and will be stronger as a result. Please keep our residents, clients and employees in your thoughts and prayers as we do the same. Until next time.
Sincerely,
Shannon Lager, RN, BSN
