December Administrator’s Letter

Greetings,


As the month of December rolls along you will see St. Ann’s transformed into a place of Christmas and holiday beauty! St. Ann’s is a huge building to decorate inside and out.
Some updated news regarding the Patio Room and the 6th floor dining room. With our maintenance staff doing the work on completing the Patio Room and needed re-pair of the interior wall, this project is taking longer than anticipated. We have decid-ed to designate another area that the residents can utilize while the Patio Room is being completed. We are going to move the items from the patio room up to 6th floor dining room temporarily. This means the piano, foyer TV, puzzles, tables for card play-ing, visiting and some comfortable furniture will be up there for you to utilize. We hope this will serve you well and you will enjoy another area of our building. Please be assured that our goal is to continue to have the 6th floor dining room remain a din-ing room when our occupancy increases and we gain employees to staff another din-ing room.
We want to thank everyone that donated to St. Ann’s through GiveMN. Whether you donated on line or off line we raised a total of $7,110.00 to support St. Ann’s. We al-so want to thank everyone that has supported St. Ann’s through this year! We have done many great things this year from repairing the patio, to getting a new sound sys-tem in the chapel and updating the Social Hall sound system, to having a Years of Ser-vice Employee Recognition and much more because of your generosity.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

Administrator’s Letter November 2021

Hello Everyone,


It is difficult to believe we are talking about cold weather and Thanksgiving already! Our Food Service Department will be putting out more information and details regarding the Thanksgiving meals. We will be having a traditional meal and are planning for a limited number of guests.
We continue to try to plan and order supplies in advance, so we don’t have a disruption in our services. There have been times in the last months where a certain item or product does not come in and is labeled unavailable or back ordered so we need to improvise.
We want to thank everyone for your patience and understanding as we maneuver in this Covid pandemic world. We greatly appreciate your mask wearing in public areas and all the precautions you have been taking. One way to ensure that you are doing everything you can is to have your Covid booster shot on November 8th. There will be sign up No-vember 1st so that the paperwork is completed before the Covid clinic day so it will go smooth for everyone.
Residents and family have been asking for a new donor wish list. St. Ann’s has many, many needs. This year we have joined in the GiveMN program. Give to the Max Day takes place on Thursday, November 18,2021 with Early Giving beginning Monday, November 1st, 2021. Our goal is to raise $15,000. Please contact Jan Lappy or Sharon Lenzen for more details. We will be posting more information of how you can help and participate.
Wishing You a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

October Administrator Letter

Hello Everyone,

 Wow, it is hard to believe how fast the leaves changed and are beginning to fall off the trees. Hope you enjoyed the nice summer weather, and we hope we continue to have nice sunny days this fall.

 With the change of season , out comes the fall decorations and nowadays Halloween has become one of the major retail holidays. You had better start getting your Halloween costumes ready and watch for all the exciting things Resident Program Services has coming up this month.

Many of you are asking about our October Rummage and Bake Sale. We are sad to report that with the cases of Covid -19 surging in St. Louis County and with the Delta variant out there, we will have to postpone our sale to the public. Sharon is planning a small sale for the residents and bid items so that you still can have some fun and still adhere to the Covid Guidelines.

We continue to make improvements as we are able. The curtain rods in the Social Hall are going up and when the draperies are cleaned, that project will help improve the Social Hall. Thank you to everyone who donates, whether large or small and thank you to everyone for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

Administrator’s Letter September 2021

Hello Everyone,


We hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather and getting outside. It is hard to believe
that it is September already!
National Assisted Living week is September 11th
-September 18th. We will be having special activities and drawings. We will also be having an Employee Appreciation Dinner on
Tuesday, September 14th for all the hard-working dedicated employees who have served
one year or more with us! We have employees who have served St. Ann’s for over 20
years!
We will be having an Open Forum on Wednesday, September 1st at 2:00. This meeting is
open to all residents, it is great place to receive the latest information about what is going on at St. Ann’s. It is also a time for you to talk to Administration and give your input.
At this Open Forum we will also be discussing the new assisted living regulations that
took affect on August 1st
.
It is so nice to see the many special activities take place again and to have our patio open
again! The other day we had a campfire and s’mores and yesterday we had llamas come
to visit.
Thank you to everyone for respecting our guidelines of getting screened when entering
our building and wearing masks in all our public areas. We need to continue to be vigilant
in our fight against Covid-19. We continue to follow all the Minnesota Department of
Health and the CDC regulations. Let’s keep doing our part to make sure the spread of the
Delta variant ends sooner than later!

Sincerly,

Scott and Jan
