Reflections of Gratitude
We are faced with unprecedented times of vulnerability and uncertainty for all. Throughout this, Maples essential personnel are providing for the needs of our residents. Great people in each department are doing what they can to help in any way. At a time when it has been necessary to close our doors to visitors and non-essential services, essential personnel are filling the gaps for the residents at Maples. We are grateful for the care and compassion our essential personnel bring to the lives of our residents daily.
We understand how difficult it is to be separated from your loved ones; thank you for your support and understanding. With your help we strive to keep our residents and our staff safe.
Over the weeks since the National Emergency Declaration we have been graced by the support of the community. Families have sent many expressions of gratitude and encouragement including flowers, coffee boxes, donuts, pastries, pizzas, sandwiches, and more. A local farm, Ward's Berry Farm, sent loaves of banana bread as a treat to share with the staff. We have received letters and artwork with messages of encouragement from nearby families. Donations of much needed handcrafted face masks have been received from various individuals and groups including Sew Hope MA of North Attleboro and Cotton Mask MA. The love and support is truly overwhelming, but it is also representative of what Americans do in difficult times: they come together to find a way to help. These gestures, supportive community messages, and donations are priceless to the personnel here at Maples, and we thank you.
