Maria Regina Families: Our Partners in Care

COVID 19 has changed life at Maria Regina. Our halls, once teaming with family visitors, are now quiet and our elders miss you terribly. Staff, too, is feeling the loss of your presence.

We understand how frightening and difficult it is not to be able to see, touch and hug your parents, sisters, brothers, friends. As the state mandated we close the facility to all visitors, we knew how hard this would be. But, together, we have tried to make the best of it – zoom video chats, phone calls and outside gatherings. For some of our residents, these forms of communication have not always been successful. For others, they have been a lifeline.

We want you to know that each day, our staff tries its best to touch each and every Maria Regina resident. In addition to our nurses and nursing assistants, the social workers, recreation therapists, rehab staff, housekeepers, dietary, pastoral care and others are on the units, being there for our elders. They comfort the frightened, they share some laughter and they do the “little things” that mean so much.

The good news is that all of our residents to date have tested negative for the virus and we have been able to take them outdoors for some fresh air. At this point, the DOH mandate barring visitation is still in effect.

We know that cannot take your place, but as our caring partners, by staying away, you are helping to contain this virus. Please know that, although we are not perfect, we are doing our very best under difficult circumstances.

We look forward to the day when our doors can open again, when we can care for our residents together and when life at Maria Regina will be made better by your presence.
