As COVID-19 makes its way across the globe, individuals, families, communities and organizations have been forced to adjust their practices and behaviors in a number of unexpected ways. No one could have known when this year started that we would be social distancing, quarantining, wearing face masks and taking extra safety precautions to limit the spread of this unknown virus to our friends and family.

Over the past several months, Saint Therese has been steadfast in our efforts to keep residents safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. While social distancing and physical separation are still very important, we are taking steps to combat the unintended consequences of prolonged social isolation and to maintain overall health and wellbeing for the seniors in our care as indoor visitation restrictions are still in place.
