A Message from Jim Davis, President and CEO
Through the extraordinary efforts, hard work and perseverance of our staff and residents, The Amsterdam at Harborside has earned an excellent track record in keeping our community safe. While we are still fully engaged in this unprecedented and historic time, we have carefully and gradually created our ‘new normal’ with consistent mask wearing, social distancing and rigorous infection control measures.
As 2020 was coming to an end, we welcomed our first phase of the long-awaited vaccinations delivered to Amsterdam residents and staff by our pharmacy partner on December 22nd with the second part of the vaccine expected to be delivered three weeks from that date. We have reached an important milestone on the road to successfully navigating the pandemic and look forward to getting back to life pre-coronavirus.
We are eagerly awaiting notification as to when the vaccine will be available for the rest of our residents. Residents in Independent Living are particularly excited to participate.
There are significant advantages to being part of a Life Plan Community at a time like this. The support services offered to our residents provided them with a safe, secure environment and gave peace of mind and comfort to both residents and their families.
We are so grateful to be among the first in the country to receive vaccines, which provide us with new hope, and light at the end of the tunnel. We have much to look forward to in 2021.
