CEO Anne Starr's Email Update for May 6, 2020

CEO Update

Dear All,

We have received word that a parent of a PACE client and also a significant other of another parent have both contracted the COVID virus. One of the parents is experiencing severe symptoms, and the family is very fearful he won't make it. Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers. In the past, we've at least been able to be there in person for them, but we cannot do that today. Nothing about this is fair. We do what we can.  

So, I'm ready for some inspiration. How about you? OP Is proud to be a sponsor of NAMI Greater Des Moines' "8 Weeks of Inspiration" speaker series. This afternoon's event features best-selling author and Vistage UK International Speaker of the Year award recipient AmyK! AmyK will discuss how to respond and adapt to changing conditions, effectively communicate expectations during times of stress, maintain and sustain your energy -- and more! Sounds pretty on point for these times! The event is free and open to the general public. Register now to reserve your (virtual) seat: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_QSEK3bRsRhexOIMqS_uGUQ

Tomorrow's email to all will include our thoughts about what indicators need to be in place before we can consider "reopening" our services.  

Don't forget your self-care, and try to hop on the noon webinar.

Sanctuary on! Anne
