People are working creatively to adapt to temporary lifestyle changes at Pioneer Cottages, Pioneer Pointe, and PioneerCare Center
Family is an important and often used word at Pioneer. Whether one resides within Pioneer Pointe, Pioneer Cottages, or PioneerCare Center, people describe it as family. That is why it pains us to not see family visiting loved ones in our living and care settings at this time. That said, our first priority is and always will be the health and well being of the people we serve.
And creativity abounds within our walls these days. Chaplain David Strom is providing a daily devotional each morning, and we’ve tried “Hallway Bingo” using the care center’s intercom system and keeping to the prescribed personal distance practices. Staff in each setting are working hard to make more frequent meaningful connections with residents and tenants as our current restrictions allow.
Outpouring of Love
Children can be the most inspiring when it comes to making a difference. They were among the first to mobilize and share what they could to brighten the day. Children’s art now adorns the windows and walls at Pioneer. Above is a photo of a staff member’s child creating art for residents at a daycare provider in Underwood.
