Montgomery Place focuses on safety, daily life during this time of COVID-19

Today was a relatively quiet day. Having wine and cheese delivered to each door at 3:30 today buoyed spirits.  Everyone was quite surprised we honored this popular weekly tradition via delivery.

We remain COVID-19-free today.

Please team-up with our staff to promote using video telecommunications with your loved one. We’ll help as we can if you do not have the technology.

For residents, the temperature of cabin fever is rising. We believe experiencing even one happy connection using video communication can help soften the constraints of Illinois’ “Stay-At-Home” executive order.

We are reclaiming some of the hallmarks of a typical day at Montgomery Place by recognizing birthdays and announcing movies and teleconferencing events.

This is an opportunity for our lifelong learners to use technology as a communication tool, similar to how school systems are employing e-learning.

I appreciate all the calls I receive every day. Please feel free to call my mobile phone number, 773-617-1317, at any time.

More tomorrow…as a new day dawns….
