We are pleased to share that we are diligently preparing plans to re-engage family and friends of Bethesda residents through the recently released, “Essential Caregiver” designation, set forth by the Minnesota Department of Health.
Before COVID-19, family and friends were an active presence in the daily life of Bethesda residents and tenants, and they played a critical role in the quality of life in our settings. While we have made every effort during COVID-19 to engage loved-ones virtually, we know that prolonged physical separation can take its toll.
Bethesda is working to ensure we have the proper protective measures in place that will enable qualified essential caregivers to re-enter our settings as our partner in the caregiving process.
Please keep watch for additional updates in the coming weeks detailing our plans. As always, your partnership and patience are greatly appreciated as we navigate this new landscape together.
