Administrator’s Note

Having just finished with Thanksgiving, what a great time to remember all the things we are grateful for. As we are all aware, 2020 has brought on so many new challenges. Our residents have not been able to see their loved ones for many months. This can bring in a lot of hard emotions and frustrations from both sides. So we are focusing on the glass ½ full at Mountain View Care Center.

I am very thankful for my staff and the way they have juggled both their professional and personal life. Many of them are also parents and are doubling as teachers when they are not working. They do it with a smile and a positive attitude. I am also thankful for our residents and the patience they have shown through all of this.

Throughout all of this, not one of our residents have gotten Covid-19. This says a lot about the care that our staff is showing not only when they are here, but when they are out and about. Infection control really does start at home.

We celebrated Veterans Day with all of Vets and had the opportunity to hear their stories, what branch of the military and about many of their loved ones who served our Country.

Although we were very excited to have our visitors back, the percentage rate for Clark County continues to climb and if we are above 10%, we have to stop visitation. We are monitoring this on a weekly basis and we can only hope that it goes down before the Christmas Holidays so we can see our visitors faces again. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to reach out to me.

I would personally like to wish everyone a very safe and healthy Happy Holidays. I know we will all be celebrating letting 2020 go and looking forward to a better year in 2021. Until that time, please stay safe and remember we still offer FaceTime and video chat with the Residents. Please call Amy or Kellan and set up your remote visitation today.

Merry Christmas

Laurie Hassen
