Re: COVID-19 Updates


Dear Residents, Family and Friends;


We are happy to report that Shawnee PARC has not had a single confirmed Covid-19 case by any of our Residents or Patients since the beginning of this pandemic. Our tightknit community has been diligent in developing and implementing safety interventions that have been contributing factors to keeping our Residents and Patients safe.

Our Residents are still encouraged to stay in their rooms as much as possible. However, our Activities Department is still doing creative things that bring love and life to our Residents and Patients each and every day. One of the highlights of the week was our Hawaiian Smoothie Event last Wednesday simultaneously on all three floors. Our Staff and Residents were overjoyed to be able to have a made-to-order cold fruity smoothie with some Hawaiian music and attire to accentuate the vive. It was well received and everyone had fun.

We are still encouraging all our Family Members and Friends to schedule virtual meeting with Winnie Banda, Activities Director. We have also been doing visitations off of the sun room on the main floor in Willow Bend. As mentioned, we’ve installed a tent for family members to be shaded from the hot summer sun. These visitations call also be arranged with our Activities Director. Your interaction with your loved ones is more important now more than ever; please take time to spend with them.

We are ardently working on staying ahead of this virus as much as we can. We thank you for your continuous support, diligence, and grace. We encourage you, as we do all our Staff, to please stay safe, wear your mask when you’re outside your home, social distance, and use proper hand hygiene. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns or requests for assistance.


At your service,

The Leadership Team at Shawnee PARC
