Today, we are awaiting results of the Skilled Nursing residents that were tested based on their proximity to the residents who tested positive. We will report those results as soon as they are provided to us.
Yesterday, we received a touching letter from a family being impacted by the virus. We are posting it here with their permission:
“Perhaps you could pass this along to your staff there at Peter Becker. Our family can only guess at what you are going through to try to deal with the Corona virus, but I am sure that it must be very stressful. We just wanted to pass along a word of appreciation and encouragement.
You have probably heard that [name withheld for privacy] tested positive for the virus. Whatever happens, we want everyone to know that we appreciate all that you have done to try to prevent the disease from spreading and all you are doing subsequently to take care of him. For your staff members who have contracted the disease, we will be in prayer for their quick recovery. Please let them know that we appreciate their self-sacrificing service. We in no way regard them as responsible for this unfortunate situation.
I wish that I were closer and could offer some assistance, but at the moment that simply isn’t feasible. But, as I said, I will be in prayer for your staff.
Thanks for all you are doing. Roy [last name omitted for privacy]”
We have been so blessed by the tremendous outpouring of support we have received from residents, family members and community members during this time. Your support is making a huge difference for our team members. And, thank you also for those who include Peter Becker Community and its staff in your prayers. It is deeply appreciated.
The next website update will occur on Friday, April 24, 2020.
