DIETERT CENTER COVID-19 Update – 11.06.2020
Well, the nasty little bug has hit the Dietert Center. We have had one staff member in the front of the building test positive today and this person has gone into isolation along with any others that have been in close contact.
The Meals on Wheels program and the Friendship Café Drive Thru WILL continue to provide hot meals for our seniors as usual without any changes at this time. We deliver close to 300 meals every weekday and have 25-35 seniors drive thru for a meal, so these programs are essential to their health and well-being.
Also, we will continue to provide our Call Reassurance program, Medical Lending, and our Personal Alert Link services. Just call the office 792-4044 as usual for assistance.
Be assured that all staff working in these programs are remaining vigilant with protective measures.
Out of an abundance of caution, all Club Ed classes and activities have been cancelled for the next two weeks.
The entire building has been professionally sanitized and disinfected today (Friday 11.6.2020) and will continue to be monitored. Contact tracing has been performed and individual(s) affected have been notified.
The health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff are of utmost importance and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
If you have any questions about testing recommendations, please call the Peterson Health Covid-19 Hotline at 896-4200. They will guide you on the symptoms and steps for testing.
If you have any questions, please give Brenda Thompson, Executive Director, a call at 377-7810.
Your donation to the Dietert Center will help your friends and neighbors continue to live independently in their homes and remain a vital part of our community.
The Dietert Center is the place to go for fun activities, challenging classes, great food, and rewarding volunteer opportunities for ALL ages!
If you’re interested in empowering your intellect, health and independence, our Center offers a wide variety of opportunities to do just that – for folks of every age.
We also assist less-active adults with a variety of services that include “Meals On Wheels,” information and referral to area resources, caregiver respite, emergency response devices, medical equipment lending and more.
