Dear Residents and Families,

I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits. The end of summer and start of autumn has not slowed down our residences as they continue to buzz with activity. Residents have enjoyed the many events organized by our dedicated staff including baking classes, outdoor concerts, restaurant trips, and visits with furry friends. The smiles and laughter are truly a joy to see throughout our campuses. I encourage you to read about these happenings and view the photos in this newsletter and our posts on our website and social media.

I also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone how important it is to keep up to date with COVID vaccinations this fall. Like most senior care residences in Massachusetts, we have again started to see COVID cases in our campuses as COVID levels have risen in the community. However, thanks to our high vaccination and booster rates among residents and staff and easy access to therapeutics, those cases have been either asymptomatic or very mild. The CDC strongly recommends receiving an updated, bivalent Pfizer or Moderna booster for those ages 12 and older to reduce the risk of severe disease. Please refer to the CDC website for the full guidelines. Being fully up to date with vaccinations is the best way you can help us keep our communities safe and healthy.

For those of you who observe the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year. It is a wonderful time to reflect and rejoice being with family and friends.

On behalf of our amazing staff, I thank you for your continued trust in us to care for your loved ones and keep them happy and safe. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to say hello, share your thoughts, or ask questions. I always welcome the opportunity to connect with you and hope to see you in our residences soon.

All the best,


Kae Santos
