We all have joined together to practice social distancing, proper hygiene, and staying informed. Social media is a wonderful way to continue this. Reach out to us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with any questions, help you may need, or just to say hello.
Our office is working very hard to continue to protect you as well as our staff. Upon entering the office you have seen a hand sanitizing station and wall mounted hand sanitizer. Which will remain. Restroom available if you prefer soap and water. Social Distancing maintained in our waiting area with minimal seating. In addition to our usual infection control procedures already in place. Infra red temperature screening. Sneeze Guards placed at reception desk. HEPA/UV Air Purifiers and UV Sanitizers. We sanitize our bathrooms, reception area, counter tops, and even door knobs on a regular basis through out the day.
This past year has been a testament to our resilience, ingenuity and resolve. Lockdowns, quarantines and social distancing became the new standard of living bringing about challenges that would test our courage and foster compassion for others. The public health crisis of our lifetime has changed us in unimaginable ways and has taught us many things about ourselves and our society as a whole.
That family and friends matter more to us than we ever could have believed-staying connected to others, even with use of technology, has proven to be crucial to our well being
That Tele-health is here to stay- the pandemic created an urgent need to advance remote technology, offering patients greater access to care.
The importance of helping our older generation stay in their homes and the urgency to get the elderly out of nursing homes and back in with their loved ones.
We learned about how viruses can spread from one person to another and that masks, hand washing and staying home when sick can help with the spread of disease.
We witnessed how covid-19 disproportionally affected racial and ethnic minority groups and that strides need to be made to ensure that everyone in our society has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
We have come to understand that self care, both physically and mentally, is not a selfish act but vital to our well being. This self-care way of thinking is likely here to stay.
It left us with a new appreciation for nature and outdoor space in which walking, running and hiking, even bird watching, becoming national pastimes.
We were forced to adapt and become comfortable with increasing use of technology: work, school, social and commerce, this digital world is here to stay and will increasingly become more integrated into our everyday lives.
So as we re-emerge into this post pandemic world, we share a collective sense of optimism that life will return to some sort of normalcy, but with lessons learned to help us navigate the “new normal”.
We are working hard to keep you and our staff safe!
