To Our Residents and Family Members
We know many of you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) and how it may impact us here at Continuing Healthcare Solutions. Ensuring residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our first priority. At this time, we don’t have any cases in any of our facilities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recommended a variety of steps that we are implementing to help reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building. However, we need your help in battling COVID-19. Below are some examples of how you can help protect the residents, as well as prevent the spread throughout the community.
At this time, we request that family and friends do not visit the center. Out of an abundance of caution, we are limiting all visitors to our facility to only essential visitors and certain medical situations. We are posting signs on our entryway doors to notify visitors of this policy and actively screening individuals, including staff, who need to come into the building.
We understand that connecting with your loved ones is incredibly important, and there are a variety of other ways you might consider communicating with them. These may include telephone, email, text, video chat or social media. If you believe a visit to the center is necessary, we request that you contact the facility administrator prior to your arrival.
Please make sure we have your most current, emergency contact information. We want to make sure we efficiently communicate with you should there be any new developments.

Doris Schmidt Retires After 46 Years
After 46 years serving the long term care community, Doris Schmidt retired in May. Doris began her career as a nurses aide in 1973! Her first job paid $1.60 per hour and Doris thought she had struck it rich. She had, just not in the way she imagined.
Her first job provided no training or orientation to the job. She showed up and was told to take care of the elderly, so that is what she did. Over the next 46 years Doris transitioned from an aide to holding positions of Activity Director, Social Services, Business Office, Marketing and finally Admissions. Many times throughout her career Doris was approached by hospital systems to come work for them. Her family also encouraged her to make the move, but from day one Doris had found her passion in nursing homes. Through the decades, despite the position she held Doris was a shining spot in the lives of so many residents who became family.
Doris and her husband of 20 years, Bob, are looking forward to many adventures! Of course, there will still be the annual trip to Myrtle Beach, but they also plan to travel out west. Everyone at CHS wishes Doris the very best, as that is what she has given to us for four decades, the very best!
