Thanksgiving Message from the Administration 

November 26, 2020 

 

It’s Thanksgiving morning here at the Pointe, and the day is off to a good start. For all the challenges, frustrations, and sadness brought on by the Pandemic, I find myself feeling very Thankful. No one would wish the last 9 months on the World or the impact it has had on all of our lives. At the same time, we can all find moments of inspiration and Joy in the midst of such a tragedy. I do think throughout History, most people are at their best when things are at their worst. On a daily basis, I’ve seen nothing short of heroism these past 9 months, and I’m thankful for that.  

In a sense, the Pandemic is an equalizer in society, because we are all impacted. At a time of such division in our Country, this tragedy is an experience shared by all. Some have risen to the challenge of our time, and others have retreated to a sense of denial about it and have not fully accepted the things we need to do to get it under control. I am so thankful that the vast majority of Residents, their families, and the Employees at the Pointe have stepped up, embraced the reality we live in, and are doing all they can to get us through it safely and with as much dignity as possible. We just did another round of Testing of Employees and New Day Residents and turned up no positive cases. That is only possible with a lot of discipline on everyone’s part. Living through a Pandemic is an intense human experience, and the commitment and strength shown by so many give me great hope for the future. 

Thank you to all the Residents, their Families, the Employees and their Families, and all the Healthcare workers that have touched the lives of our Residents during this Pandemic. 

Special thanks to Michael Stein, the Owner of the Pointe. Prior to the Pandemic, his emphasis has always been on taking care of the Residents and the Employees. He has not wavered in the least from that commitment, even in the face of this threat and economic stress it has created. We are all partners in this endeavor with shared interests. With the strength of our people, I’m confident we will get through this and come out the other side stronger and more united, and more Joyful than before.  

Happy Thanksgiving to all associated with the Pointe, and Thank You!
