A Message from the Care Team

“We don’t have to do it alone.  We were never meant to.” 
Brené Brown from her book Rising Strong

Minnesotans pride themselves on being hardy, strong, able to manage life without the need for much help.  This week our Care Team met in a “virtual” setting and took a little time to “check in” with one another.  We each expressed how these uncertain times had generated a myriad of feelings.  There is much to deal with…concern for family and friends with problems and no ability to be present to help.  Simple tasks like getting groceries or prescriptions became difficult.  Most of all, we shared how much we miss the closeness of loved ones…especially those precious grandchildren.  We miss hugs!  In short, on so many levels, we all are feeling vulnerable.  We do know one thing for certain…we are part of a community wrapped in love!  As your Care Team, we are here to remind each of you, we are here to support.  Please, reach out to us if there is some way we can help.  We may find concrete solutions to a problem or we may simply be a touch stone with a “virtual” hug!
