Over the last year, COVID-19 has given everyone plenty of reason to lose sleep. Because of the pandemic, many have experienced what is being called "coronasomnia", an increase in acute stress, anxiety or depression that increases insomnia or the inability to get a good night's sleep.
As COVID-19 infection rates began to spike, concern for our senior residents and staff was at an all-time high. With the COVID-19 vaccine being announced in November, we began to worry that our at-risk senior residents and staff might not be included in the first phase of vaccine distribution plans.
Our team jumped into action and over the last month we've worked with the good folks at the Indiana Governor's office to guarantee all seniors, including those in independent living communities would receive the vaccine.
Just yesterday, December 23, 2020, our hopes and efforts came to fruition with the first of our team receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. With most of our residents and staff scheduled to receive the vaccine on December 28, 2020, we'll begin to sleep just a little bit better as life begins to return to near normal.
While we have a long road ahead, as we move in to 2021, we can breathe a little sigh of relief knowing that our residents and staff have taken the first step to a safer life and a return to "near normal".
The vaccine will be made available to new residents as they move into our community. We believe that independent senior living communities will continue to be some of the safest, most cost effective and enjoyable places for seniors to live.
