Dear Family Members and Friends,


The Care Center at Sunset Lake remains committed to protecting residents and staff from COVID-19.  We have made it a priority to keep our residents, families and staff informed of all of our efforts to ensure the safety and health of everyone living and working at The Care Center during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are extremely happy to share that we have not received any reports of staff members testing positive for COVID-19 this week. We are also thrilled to share that there are still NO confirmed COVID-19 cases among residents. A huge THANK YOU to our Director of Nursing, infection preventionist, and all the staff who are working so hard to keep everyone healthy.

We are not yet offering onsite visitation. Once we are in a position to resume visitation we will be in contact with families to discuss protocols.

Update on technology: We have been working with our ITS department to get iPads for the facility for use in conjunction with laptops for Zooming with loved ones. ITS has received the iPads and one additional laptop and are working on getting them configured and sent to the facility as soon as possible.

On to happy news! We are offering two Zoom chats per week starting next week.  If you are interested and have not received a call, please call the Activities department.  We hope you enjoy your time catching up.  The Care Center received amazing donations of spooky and fun decorations.  Photo booths were set up and we all enjoyed it.   Thank you to our incredible community for their support!

Please remember to “like” and “follow” us on Facebook to see pictures of your loved ones and to get a glimpse of what’s going in the building.

We will continue weekly updates for all residents’ families and staff, and will notify residents and families individually of personal health information.

Should you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Acting Administrator or the Director of Nursing.
