Dear Residents and Family Members,

I must begin by thanking those of you who have already made a gift to Seacrest Foundation for our COVID HEROES FUND. We cannot thank you enough for being there with us in this way as we continue to protect one another and do nice things for our staff.

Because of you, tomorrow we will be bringing in sandwiches from Board and Brew for every employee! And on Friday we will again send each employee home with a fresh baked challah from Charlie’s Bakery in San Diego. They even bring them to us warm!

In case you did not see yesterday’s letter, you can support the COVID HEROES FUND through the Seacrest Foundation website, or simply mail your gift to Seacrest Foundation, 211 Saxony Road, Encinitas, CA 92024 and designate COVID-19 fund.

Thank you for helping to make the days a little brighter for our staff who are on the front line; they are truly heroes in every sense of the word.

Residents, during this extended precautionary period we encourage you to continue spending time outside. We have beautiful patios and gardens at Seacrest and now is the time to enjoy them. Please just stay socially distanced and wear masks.

Today, unfortunately we have two new cases to share with you. A member of our assisted living team who was last on campus January 9, 2022, is fortunately asymptomatic, and a member of our culinary team, who was last on campus on 1/9/22, is unfortunately symptomatic. We have conducted contact tracing and notified anyone who may have been exposed. We have also contacted all mandated agencies.  We continue to follow CDC guidelines for returning to work.

To all our staff and residents who are not well we send healing thoughts for a full and complete recovery.
