Honoring the Baile Legacy in 2021

News
This year, in lieu of our beautiful ball, we invite you to relive the memories of Bailes past through a carousel of photos, advertisements and articles we've compiled here on the St Luke's Home website. The Baile is normally our biggest fundraiser of the year so in these not-so-normal times, your support is needed now more than ever. Please support us again this year by donating the cost of a Baile ticket, and more, to care for the Elders at St Luke’s Home. The New Beginnings Champagne Basket We're still holding the Baile Raffle this year, and (if you're over 21) you could win our prize: the New Beginnings Champagne Basket! It's a beautifully appointed picnic basket with plates, service ware, napkins, a bottle of fine champagne, crystal Waterford champagne flutes…

Newsletter
    St Luke's Home Newsletter February 2021 CEO Report I hope you and your loved ones are well. St Luke’s Home is excited to announce CVS Health came to the Home on February 10, 2021 to administer the first round of the Moderna vaccinations. The second doses are scheduled for March 10, 2021, with an extra date on April 7, 2021 – just in case someone misses one of the previous dates.   Everyone is feeling well and excited to get the second dose.

January 2021 Newsletter

Newsletter
St Luke's Home Newsletter January 2021 CEO Report Happy New Year, Friends! 2020 felt like the longest year on record because of the ongoing pandemic, but we made it through. It was tough for our Elders not to hug their loved ones regularly throughout the year and especially during the holidays, but they all remain free from the virus. We have missed our dedicated volunteers, but the staff continue to go above and beyond their normal duties to fill in the gaps as best we can. Without all the fundraising events, we saw some concerning financials, but our generous donors helped St Luke’s Home.  2020 was a year of patience, compassion, and fortitude, and we made it! In this issue, I hope you enjoy the article with our Best of 2020…

December 2020 Newsletter

Newsletter
  St Luke’s Home Newsletter December 2020 Holiday Greetings from the CEO Happy Holidays, friends. I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and enjoyed your Thanksgiving. For me, this time is for reflection and gratitude towards others. This year is no different; however, it puts things into a different perspective. As CEO, my foremost role has been to keep the Elders safe from COVID-19. With this decision has come many difficult choices. Love ones not being able to touch one another. Not being able to enjoy the familiar scent of one another or hear a clear voice without the static of technology. Sure we held a wonderful parade in May, the Hug Tunnel in August, and many telephone, video, and window visits. I truly understand it’s not the…

  St Luke’s Home Newsletter November 2020   Halloween was a Spook-tacular Day! Elders and staff bonded over gobbling goodies, crooning tunes, and dizzy dancing at our Halloween Party this year, with Kidd Squidd as DJ and Selina the Head Chef as Captain COVID-Killer! It was a fiesta full of giggling ghouls, sweets, and superheroes, complete with lightsaber duels, Dracula vs Jason, and a poor piñata that did not survive the day.     University of Arizona Students Continue Supporting our Elders -- Zoom style! Over the years, the University of Arizona has remained one of St Luke’s Home’s most vital partners by enriching the physical and emotional health of our community. Typically, hundreds of faculty and students become part of our daily flow. It is a sight to behold when…

September 2020 Newsletter

Newsletter
  St Luke’s Home Newsletter September 2020 CEO Report I hope everyone is staying healthy. Once again, I am pleased to announce that NO Elder at St Luke’s Home has tested positive for COVID-19. Our early restriction policies and stringent cleaning practices have kept everyone healthy. On August 28, 2020, the Arizona Department of Health Services released COVID-19 Guidance for Visitation at Congregate Settings for Vulnerable Adults and Children. Although I am grateful for Governor Ducey’s Long Term Care (LTC) Task Force recommendations on reopening LTC communities and introducing face-to-face visits with loved ones, there continue to be questions about the recommendations. St Luke’s Home will continue to research guidelines and maintain all current practices while re-evaluating the recommendations weekly. At this time, due to the Pima County loosening restrictions,…
