Aren’t we all ready for 2021?! Treemont Retirement Community and Health Care Center, like many senior communities, were all jolted into new territory last March when the Covid-19 virus raged through Houston and upended our normal routines. Executive Director Rodney Brooks and Administrator Cynthia Lamison acted swiftly to modify our dining procedures and social distance our activities. Our HCC Activity Director Jeanette Mitchell, a licensed beautician, started giving haircuts to residents so they didn’t look like 1960’s hippies! Life changed, but the care and love for our residents remained steadfast.
“There is so much hope on the horizon with our vaccine scheduled for January 11th!” says Health Care Center Administrator Cynthia. “The vaccine cannot come soon enough!” CVS will administer the Pfizer vaccine to Treemont Nursing/Rehab and Assisted Living residents and staff who are in Tier 1 priority category. The second vaccine is scheduled for February 1st.
On the Independent Living side, residents who enjoyed the social interaction at meals, three times daily, with their neighbors adjusted to meal deliveries in their apartments. Treemont now has two sittings each for lunch and dinner to keep everyone as safe as possible. “It is super exciting to have opened up the Treemont Dining Room after Thanksgiving,” says Executive Director Rodney.
Rodney continues, “The first date to vaccinate our independent living residents is February 1st. This will be a game changer so we can start a return to our normal, fun routine that includes Big Band Dances and Backyard BBQs among other activities.”
We are defined by how we respond to adversity and we are proud of the way our Team Members, Residents and Families have responded to the pandemic. We are excited for what 2021 will bring.
