Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update for May 27, 2020

What Is the Good Word Today?

Everyone at Schmitt Woodland Hills Remains Healthy

In a recently published set of guidelines the WDHS offered the following suggestions as ways for families to help their loved ones cope with the restrictions brought on by the pandemic. We think these are excellent suggestions and if there is anything, we at SWH can do to help facilitate any of these methods of communicating, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Use Facetime, Skype or other mobile media, if your resident has access to a device, or as arranged by the home.
  • Send extra cards, notes, postcards, being sure to keep your message short and positive.
  • Phone your resident often, but please try not to call during the busiest times of day if staff need to assist your resident with the phone.
  • If your resident is unable to talk on the phone or use mobile media to stay in touch, ask the staff if someone can call you periodically to give you an update about how your resident is doing.”

A familiar sight hit the streets of Richland Center today. The bright red canopy of the SWH trishaw was on its maiden voyage of the season today. The trishaw made two trips today, carrying residents from the Health Center on short trips into the community. Both participants said they had a great time despite the humid conditions.
