The Lodge at Grand Junction: We’re In It Together

April 17, 2020

Our staff at The Lodge at Grand Junction are always finding creative, new ways to engage with our residents and families during this period of social distancing, from the artistic, to the intellectually stimulating, to the just plain fun.

One remote activity Lodge team members and families recently participated in was a sidewalk chalk art party on the Lodge’s driveway, where they traded supportive messages and shared the love with residents.

At The Lodge at Grand Junction, our families are as awesome as our residents. We’re grateful for their words of encouragement, whether by phone, by email or by chalk!

Some residents’ families used chalk to write short letters to their loved ones, wishing them health, happiness and love.

Our residents have also been enjoying the outdoors, dining at least six feet apart while still taking part in a social environment. The idea here is to remain socially distanced, but not socially isolated.

During this difficult time, Lodge leadership is also doing the best we can to give our staff the support they need both at work and at home, for example, by providing essential items they can bring home to their families.

To our valued families, staff and residents, we thank you for your unparalleled dedication and support. We’re all in this together, and we’ll get through it, just like we always do.
