At Galloway Ridge, we instill our mission statement into each aspect of our senior-living community. Every action focuses on our core values − caring, empowering, integrity, and commitment − which tether us together in good times and bad. This past year, however, has brought its own extraordinary challenges as we, the nation, and indeed the world, fought a pandemic that led to unimaginable loss of life and lifestyle. In the face of these unparalleled obstacles, we found strength in core values outside of our typical framework: creativity and perseverance.
With the impact of the pandemic still fresh in our minds, we have the privilege of offering our 2020 Annual Report to showcase the solutions and small victories that gave us hope over the past year’s difficulties as well as the recovery that awaits us in coming months.
Let us begin by thanking our residents and employees for their generosity and sacrifices that allowed our community to continue its spirit of giving.
While volunteering opportunities were sharply curtailed during Covid-19 protocols, you continued to shore up the community and the greater Chatham County area with financial donations to maintain funding for our support programs.
At a time when our community was forced to take extreme measures for the health and safety of our residents and staff, we innovated and restructured our routines and means of communication to stay connected to each other and loved ones outside of our campus. We cannot tell you how impressed we all are with the ingenuity that led to the creation of a full schedule of robust digital content to keep our residents active and engaged.
From assisting with Zoom calls, maintaining quality nutrition through meal delivery, realizing tent visits, and facilitating small group bubbles in both independent living and The Arbor, our residents and staff members navigated the treacherous nature of the pandemic to engage, enrich, and empower one another. In addition, our resident-led committees and leadership pivoted to virtual meetings to conduct business and promote interaction.
