Gratitude and Grace in the Face of COVID-19

Community Happenings  |  May 12, 2020

Thank You to CLC-Cappella Team Members, Partners, and Friends for your support during this unprecedented time.

Traditionally, May is a month of celebrations and graduations. In the senior living industry, May is the month we recognize nurses and those living and working in skilled nursing home communities. This year we are finding creative ways to celebrate during a global pandemic. The challenges senior living communities face while caring for the most vulnerable are unprecedented and it has been a team effort.

We are grateful for the nurses and health care professionals in our communities who are keeping everyone safe and healthy. This is a perilous time for team members, yet their passion for serving seniors is unwavering. Our entire Clinical team, CNAs, Life Enrichment teams, Duet Dining staff, Business Office teams, Marketing and Sales teams, Administrative Support staff, Life Enrichment team members, Maintenance team, Chaplains, Social Workers, Health Information Directors and Clinical Liaisons, those working in Environmental Services and Transportation, continue to create a caring atmosphere for residents and commitment to the team. It is inspiring.

In addition, our partners, friends, family members, and the community at large have sent messages of support and much needed supplies. Volunteers have drawn chalk-art messages, painted beautiful artwork on windows, and supplied snacks, sent cards, flowers, and prayers. We are grateful for your generosity and kindness.

Thank You to All Who Have Donated Vital PPE

We want to take this opportunity to thank all who have donated much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) to our communities so far. These individuals and organizations have come to our aid out of the goodness of their hearts – truly, they are lifesavers.

Thank you to our home office staff who is tracking, sorting, hunting down, and following up on leads for this scarce and vital resource. There is a national shortage of PPE and we continue to seek sources for PPE to protect team members and residents. If you can help, please contact us at info@clcmail.org.

"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
