COVID may have changed our daily life, but it hasn’t kept us from celebrating! We’ve been blessed to have ongoing parties as each resident celebrates another birthday.
In October, Yolanda had a special party that included her favorite foods, barbecue ribs and cheesecake with raspberries. She spent time selecting the menu and loved the decorations—the whole ABLE staff went all out in making the room complete with streamers, balloons, and candles! We finished off the night with a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday, after which we enjoyed some cheesecake.
All the residents at ABLE have prepared for flu season and received influenza vaccinations!
Much thanks to the ABLE staff—Alice, Dave, Imelda and Josh, for helping with transportation, moral support and comfort. The ABLE team has been very supportive in committing to getting their own flu shots this year, even those who might otherwise be reluctant.
This year, it is even more important for everyone to get their flu shots. But why is that, exactly?
Air Purifiers and New Beds!
In the midst of COVID, our residents have transitioned away from our normal outings and spending more time around the house. So, we’ve decided to make some home improvements!
First on the agenda was air purifiers. Even though we wear masks and check temperatures routinely, air purifiers add another important layer to our safety measures. We chose the Air Doctor Pro, which removes more than 99.99% of tested viruses and regularly replaces all the air in a standard room.
