May Picnic!

May 10th, 2020

The weather has been beautiful this May week of Mother’s Day. Some of our seniors decided to take advantage of the weather by eating lunch outdoors on our patio. They turned their lunch into a nice outdoor picnic and enjoyed the weather, our patio, and beautiful backyard and pond. Our dining staff served them on the patio. Other residents (who don’t like sun) chose to eat indoors. Everyone got to enjoy their preferred place to eat on this beautiful day!

Thank you to our dedicated staff and residents families!

April 19th, 2020

Thank you dedicated staff for your hard work, caring, and perseverance.

Thank you residents’ friends and families for your understanding and cooperation with our COVID prevention measures. As is the new normal, please call before visiting Somerset.

Since the situation can change, calling us before visiting is the best way to keep your senior friends and relatives safe, as well as the rest of our seniors and staff. So far our prevention measures are working. No one at Somerset has COVID.

If we continue our careful policy regarding no visitors (except for special circumstances with mask and temperature check) we hope to continue having healthy residents and staff. By being careful, we’ll all get through this.

 

Thank you to everyone – Somerset Administrators Mariisa Bond Jimenez and Eric Rosgen.

 

Please see video below of Washington State Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers thanking Washington senior living facilities and staff for their dedication.

Water Color Painting

March 31st, 2020

Somerset residents enjoyed water color painting in our large dining room while practicing social distancing. This gave residents an enjoyable and safe activity.

We are doing our best to keep our residents busy. We are practicing social distancing while painting by number and listening to festive polka music! Denise (activities director) invites residents by special invitation for activities. This allows us to have fun while controlling group size, hand washing, social distancing and sanitizing after. This keeps our residents healthy in body and mind.

Entertainment and Live Music Continues at Somerset

March 26th, 2020

We’re continuing to have live music at Somerset while protecting our residents (no visitors or entertainers entering the building).

Our activities director regularly schedules local musicians to come to Somerset to perform and serenade residents from parking lot, sidewalks, and backyard.

Musicians serenade all parts of building (from outside) so residents can enjoy music in their apartments. There are multiple concerts (outside each part of building) so everyone can enjoy.

 

Our musician friend Dennis is a gifted singer and excellent guitarist! Dennis serenaded Somerset residents from our front covered entry way on a rainy day. Staff opened windows so residents could enjoy live music from their rooms. Dennis made it a fun and cheerful day for everyone. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Dennis!

 

Dennis also serenaded Somerset residents from our backyard gazebo. Residents enjoyed it from their rooms through open windows. Dennis made it a fun and cheerful day for everyone. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Dennis!

 

Our musician friend Blake traveled all around the outside of Somerset on a sunny day serenading our beloved residents. Staff opened windows to let in fresh air and music! Our neighbors in buildings next door enjoyed it too. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Blake!

Residents and staff enjoy live music and comradery hearing each other cheering and applauding.

We’ll have guest musicians serenading each week (or more often if possible). We’re working hard to keep our seniors and staff happy, entertained, and safe.

 
 
 

Toilet Paper Shortage and Donations

March 24th, 2020

Last week we reached out to the local community to ask for assistance in collecting toilet paper. For all of you that have been to the store lately, imagine getting TP for 130 bottoms plus staff. The struggle is real. Supplies are all back ordered!

At a building with 65 residents plus staff, we go thru 13 to 14 large Costco packs a month times 2 care facilities. That is 28 packs of 48 double rolls. For the past 3 to 4 weeks, we send 3 or 4 staff members out daily to purchase 1 or two packs at a time, depending on the limit. Sometimes there is none to be had.

I asked a friend to put us on a prayer chain, to help us obtain TP. The phone has been ringing off the hook and people have been knocking on the front door to give what they can. We have been blessed by our community. We are grateful and proud of our neighbors.

Thank you for your outpouring of caring and generosity. It has allowed staff members to get back to providing care.

Mariisa, Administrator
