Disaster Update #2
Ok, sorry for the delay; I meant to get this out right after report this morning, but it has been busy around here! Charles Dyck, Chairman of the Moundridge Manor Board gave us the following report this morning:
- Service Master continues to blow extremely dry air into the building via air tunnels (some think they look like hamster runs). This afternoon they are cranking up the heat in the flood damaged area, hoping to get it up to the 100 degree range to dry things out further.
- The new water main pipe is being laid in the trench and the interior plumbing has started; it is supposed to be finished by tomorrow evening.
- Just a point of interest – when the drywall was removed in Autume and Suellen’s office, there was a foot of sand trapped in between the wall.
Otherwise, we are in no way forgetting our residents who are now in other homes. We are currently helping staff four other nursing homes so that there are familiar faces taking care of them. Yesterday Karla, Cassie, Carolyn, Chris, and Vernabelle visited each home to see how things were going; their reports were very favorable! Pam Decker and her Activity crew went out and had Bible Trivia and sang with a group of displaced residents. Deb Nightingale went to a home yesterday and did exercises with some of our residents. We are in frequent communication with each home to make sure that all resident needs are being met. Again, many thanks to all the homes who are doing such a superb job of helping care for them!
