    St Luke’s Home Newsletter May 2020     State of the Home – May 21, 2020, at 3:30 pm Hi Friends! I hope you continue to remain healthy. We sure miss seeing everyone coming and going throughout the Home; however, at this time, the Elders and Staff remain free of COVID-19. The team sure enjoyed putting the mini videos together this past week - for Giving Tuesday. At the Home, our spirits remain upbeat, but the Elders miss all of you. They genuinely miss the touch of a loved one and the warm smiles of those who share their time and talents. Through the videos, we wanted you all to know you truly are part of our family. St. Luke’s Home cannot be the happy place it is…

April 2020 Newsletter

Newsletter
    St Luke’s Home Newsletter April 2020     CEO Message One year ago, I stood in front of many of you at the 100th Baile, sharing my enthusiasm as the incoming CEO of St. Luke’s Home. Since that time, we have achieved many successes; however, we are currently faced with one of the most significant and unprecedented challenges, not only at the Home, but throughout the world. On March 11, 2020, St Luke’s Home implemented strict and early precautions to prevent COVID-19 from entering our Home. At this time we have been successful in keeping our Elders and Staff healthy. As I recently left my office after work,  I witnessed a guest sitting on a folding chair, talking to her loved one through the glass doors. This was…

  St. Luke's Home Newsletter December 2019      Art Exhibit Builds a Special Bond by Karen Wright  “I don’t like smiling on command.” That was the response I received when I asked George if he would be interested in participating in the Don’t Look Away Photo Exhibition. When I assured him that I would prefer to capture him naturally, George grudgingly said, “Check back with me tomorrow.” Little did I know that it would be the beginning of a wonderful experience. Returning the following day to photograph other elders, I found George in the hallway sporting a bright yellow shirt (“so you could find me”), more than ready for his turn in front of the camera. Unfortunately, his day had not started out so well, but the more we…
