                                                   Administrator's Update                                   





November 20, 2020                                                                                                                      


   As we approach the end of another month of this pandemic, we are taking the time to reflect on how thankful we are as we continue to move in a positive direction. As of today we have only one resident on the Covid-19 Unit, who is recovering and currently has no symptoms, this resident will remain on infection control isolation for a total of twenty -one days and has a dedicated nurse and aide to provide his needed care.

We understand how important it is for our residents to see their family members and we are working to keep face time zoom and phone calls going.  We will continue to schedule and provide some limited compassion visits with residents that have recovered.

Currently - the visit is very controlled and the family must be in PPE and it is only one visit per resident.

This process must be very stringent, based on guidance from the D.P.H. 

   All of the Sunny Acres residents are continuing to recover and are now working with the Rehabilitation Therapists and the Dietician

on improving their endurance and strength.  We continue surveillance testing on our negative residents every three to four days.

Sunny Acres Staff is tested weekly and all tests are reported to D.P.H. and C.D.C.

continue to make phone calls to responsible family members to provide direct communication on the status of your family member.

  To better care for our residents; the facility is working with an Infection Control Consulting Team, who has been assisting our facility to improve systems and maintain proper infection control practices. We have provided a plan to MASS D.P.H. to ensure that no further spread of the virus will occur or reoccur, which has been accepted, and we continue to work closely with them on our plan of correction pertaining to improving infection control education and practice.  Unfortunately, at this time, the facility cannot accept any new admissions, but we can accept current residents that may go to the hospital and return to Sunny Acres. 

    If you have any questions regarding room changes you can e-mail Joan Murdock Social Service Director at 

Please don't hesitate to call the facility with any questions or concerns.

  The entire team at Sunny Acres has been working very hard to provide the best care possible under this extremely difficult situation.

The good news is we are moving in a positive direction.

Thank you again for your supportive e-mails, phone calls, and generosity.

         The staff truly appreciates this encouragement. 

   Wishing you and your families a very Happy Healthy Thanksgiving.
