Dear Fondest Wish Supporters,

On behalf of the Fondest Wish and the 215 residents of Riverside Rest Home, I want to thank you for being a 2019 sponsor at the Riverside Rest Home Golf Tournament in support of The Fondest Wish fund. Last year we raised over $12,000.00 for our residents all due to the generous support of our community and we are forever grateful. 

In an effort to stay within the current state guidelines we could have made a number of modifications allowing the tournament to take place in June. However, under the circumstances we felt strongly that it was best to postpone our event until September 1st, 2020.

We hope that everyone is well and adapting to the situation at hand. We are fortunate to be healthy here at Riverside Rest Home and have been very diligent to keep our community here safe. We hope you will join us in September, as a sponsor, donor or team. Until then, enjoy your summer and be well.

Sincerely Yours,

Maria Ayer, Golf Committee Member
Director of Volunteer and Public Relations

 

We appreciate your willingness to partner with us in this endeavor. Please call or email me with any questions.

Dear Family Member and/or Responsible Party:
Based on the potential devastating effects of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) on the elderly and medically infirm segments of our population, we have taken all of the steps suggested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to deter the disease’s progress into Riverside Rest Home. 

To date: We have had no flu or Covid-19 cases in the facility; no staff members infected with the Covid-19 virus; and no community transmission. However, over the last several days, Strafford County’s Riverside Rest Home Team has been working diligently to determine the best future course of action to continue to protect our residents and staff from the likely spread of the Corona virus (Covid-19).

We considered screening visitors and quickly dismissed this option as someone could be contagious with the virus for three to five (3 to 5) days before symptoms become obvious as this is the disease’s incubation period. Screening would only prohibit visitors who are already several days into the disease process. This screening could also provide a false sense of not having the virus to those who are contagious during this incubation phase.

Therefore, effective at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, March 16, 2020,
we are prohibiting ALL visitors into the facility, with the exception of visits to residents who are facing end of life. In addition, no residents will be allowed to leave the facility for other than necessary medical appointments. 

At this time, we will have in place the ability for Facetime visits as we have acquired thirty (30) Tablets which can be used for that purpose. This type of video visit can be set up by reaching out to your family member’s Social Worker.
Please be supportive and patient as we work together to fight this pandemic and keep our staff and residents safe. I want to thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
Very truly yours,
Raymond F. Bower

What’s latest news at Riverside? We just got some new wheels ! In an effort to add a little pizazz to our residents day we will soon be giving trail rides for some nature nurturing. Don’t be surprised to catch us picnicking in the woods by the river , maybe doing some fishing and bird watching too. Rarely will we pick up hitchhikers but who could turn down Superintendent Brackett ?!
C’mon sunny days we are ready for you!❤️🌈☀️
