Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

A feeling of pride
When I was in the hospital, I did not think it would ever be possible for me to ever walk again. However, once coming to Cypress Cove, the therapists there set goals for me to walk and be able to dress and groom myself. At the end of my stay, I am happy to announce that I walked out of Cypress Cove (with the help of my walker) and a feeling of pride because I can now live independently. I would like to send a special thank you to the nurses, cnas, and staff at Cypress Cove for taking such great care of me while I was there and helping me to exceed all of my goals.
I wanted to take the time to thank the staff of Cypress Cove for taking such great care of my mother. My mother speaks very little English and prominently speaks Hindi. However, the staff got out of their comfort zone and used interpreter services, made cue cards with a photo of an image with both the English and Hindi words on them, and involved myself to make sure that my mother felt comfortable.

Keeping my mother happy and healthy
Ms. Moore stated that when people asked me how I felt about my mother being in a skilled nursing facility during this pandemic, I said with great confidence that I miss my mother terribly, but I don't worry about her because of the care that I know she is receiving at Cypress Cove! The Nurses, CNAs, and other staff always do the best that they can to make sure that my mother is not only healthy but happy as well.
