Assisted care providers are trying to fill the void left by not allowing visitors and family to visit loved ones inside due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Anna’s Healthcare in Sturgeon Bay currently has 59 people that reside at the facility. Tama Bagley, administrator and owner, says her staff and residents have adjusted well to the lockdown and the residents are still enjoying a sense of community. She notes the positive ways families are staying in touch.
Bagley sees the recent correspondences as a step back in time with more mail and flower deliveries. She adds that Anna’s Healthcare is helping families connect on through social media as well.
Bagley says Anna’s Healthcare’s staff is also providing hair styling and nail polish services which adds more one-on-one time with residents.
