At Harlan Morris, our Elder Services Retirement Community in Tennessee, we instituted a proactive shelter in place order on April 2nd to protect the many vulnerable and high risk seniors who live there. Amanda Newell, Regional Director in Tennessee and 5 dedicated staff have selflessly put their lives on hold, for an unknown amount of time, working around the clock to care for and ensure the safety of our 21 precious residents. Find out how our incredible SJCS team is weathering the COVID-19 storm at Harlan Morris with an insider interview between our CEO & President Alan Thornton and Amanda Newell.
The novel coronavirus has changed many things, it has changed the way we work, interact, and communicate. It has created new standards of health safety. It is currently changing the economic landscape of our country as we all hunker down and wonder what it will be like to return to our daily lives. “During these times of uncertainty,” has become the first line of every email that hits our inbox, but during these times, one thing is certain, and that is, that COVID-19 has not changed the dedication of the team at SJCS. We are proud of how our team members have reacted in this pandemic, their level of selflessness, their caring for the vulnerable individuals they support, and their flexibility to help out in any way possible. Our team is amazing and have truly proven to be champions in the midst of this crisis.
