Manager’s update - Autumn 2020
Hello everyone, we hope that everyone is keeping safe and well! We would like to thank all our Residents, Relatives and Staff for being so supportive during the current COVID-19 Pandemic. The Casey Aged Care team have been ensuring Residents have visits with their families and loved ones either by window visits, virtual calls or our new booking system. Whilst this time brings some uncertainty, it is exciting to see the embrace of technology which has been a learning for all! Autumn saw some lovely days spent in the Garden, afternoons creating Easter decorations and a solemn heartfelt service for ANZAC Day. During this time of uncertainty, Casey Aged Care have commenced a gratitude project. Each day we ask Residents and Staff to write down something that they are grateful for on a love heart so it can be displayed in the home (each person has the choice to remain anonymous). We think that it is important to always remain thankful and reflect on the positive things or people we have around us. We extend the invitation to all Relatives and Friends when you attend for your booked visit. If you have time it would be wonderful to share your positive thoughts with our Residents and Staff. We will continue to keep all Relatives and Residents updated with information as it arises. Again, thank you for your support and stay safe!
Kindest Regards, Jessica- Home Manager and the Casey Aged Care Team
