We are once again fortunate to report that there are no new deaths at Pinecrest Nursing Home since our update yesterday.
Although we are facing new and unique challenges as we learn more about COVID-19, our front-line staff are well stocked with the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need to provide clinical care and personal support. Our staff are also working hard to provide companionship to our residents while they are away from their families. I cannot thank our staff enough for their efforts and their continued dedication to our residents.
We continue to work closely with Public Health and the Ministry of Health to ensure all new and ongoing care directives are implemented and are clearly communicated to all staff. We are also committed to sharing crucial information with health authorities and other homes in the province so that they can learn from our experiences.
The ongoing support from our community is truly amazing. This morning we had a special visitor to our home — the Easter Bunny arrived and waved to residents through their windows. I attached a few pictures of our special visitor! I also continue to receive daily messages of support from the Kawartha Lakes community. Our staff will never forget these acts of kindness.
