I am happy to report that all is well at Hale Anuenue!
With the support of our local Department of Health, we have moved to monthly testing. 25% of our staff will rotate through testing each week.
Our residents have been troopers with the number of tests that they have endured over the last month or so, and they are happy to not have to undergo testing again unless the COVID-19 situation changes.
Our first 25% staff testing session on Friday, Oct. 9, showed all negative results!
We continue to remain focused daily on prevention measures and actively seek opportunities to make any improvements or enhancements in our systems and processes. We are forever thankful for the guidance of Life Care Centers of America and our divisional office for their experienced and valued support. We are also very thankful for our highly beneficial relationship with the Department of Health, as well as our community partners — and there are many who support us.
We count our blessings each day for our faithful, focused and vigilant staff, incredible supporting families and friends, all while serving and loving our beautiful residents. Please malama yourselves and your loved ones as we fight this fight together!
Gail Kahookele, executive director
