Newsletter for October, 2020
As we enter into the fall season at Kiva, we continue to benefit from the hard work and innovation of Cindy and her staff!
First, and most importantly, we remain covid-free among both residents as well as staff. Nothing is more important than the health of our family. We have established protocols for visits between residents and their family members and friends, which are to be scheduled and take place on our porches outside in the rear of the facility. Those who wish to take advantage of this opportunity should contact Cindy or Gwen.
The virus is affecting life at Kiva like everywhere else. We regret that the Christmas Party has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution. We have had the party every December since 2008 and are sad not to be holding it this year. However, our residents are staying busy with the assistance of our newly appointed Activities Director, Jennifer Johnson. Seasonal decorations continue as a source of inspiration and of course we all look forward to a return to normalcy in 2021.
Meanwhile, renovation and beautification are on-going. We have made the decision to convert all flooring in carpeted resident rooms to laminated “wood” flooring as the rooms come available. It is not only more attractive but more hygienic than the carpet.
If you are considering Kiva as a home for your loved-one, you should know that, even though physical tours are still not possible, Cindy can provide you with a virtual tour through the use of your smart phone. At this moment we have both private and semi-private rooms available, both at our reasonable rates. And remember that at Kiva, the rate never increases for as long as you are a resident!
