We Have Re-Opened!
The Covid-19 crisis has, and continues, to affect all of us. KCCH is taking this crisis very seriously. Our most precious resources are our volunteers and our community partners. Their health and safety is of paramount importance and drives all of our decision making during these uncertain times. The Board of Directors and Staff of Keuka Comfort Care Home would like to keep all of you in our local community informed with regard to what is happening. We temporarily closed the Home on March 23 and re-opened on June 10 with new safety guidlines in place. UR Medicine Home Care Ontario Yates Hospice is the essential service for hospice care in our community. We are in continual contact with them and assist them in whatever way we can. KCCH also recently donated our supply of masks to Finger Lakes Health where they were critically needed. We are more than willing to share our health related supplies with families that might need them for a loved one at home. Please contact us at the number below if we can be of assistance.
From its inception in 2005, KCCH has relied exclusively on our friends and fundraisers to support our daily operations. This time of closure has given us the opportunity to reflect on how very blessed KCCH has been to be able to care for so many families because of the support of our fundraising events, individual supporters, and our Corporate Sponsors. Our gratitude for your support is immeasurable. It is with sadness that one of our fundraisers, the “Big Barn Bonanza” which was scheduled for May 29th and 30th 2020 has been cancelled. We already have many great items in storage, but are unable at this time to take any new items as you clean out during this crisis. We will come up with some creative ways to allow the community to help us clean out our storage units in the coming year. Our website will be continually updated with details of our other upcoming events, such as the Friday Garage Sales in July at the Home. “Krossin Keuka” was also cancelled, much to the dismay of the many who participate in the event. Our Annual Pig Roast is changed up a bit. Dinners will be drive-thru only, and the Pie Wheel will be replaced by a Pie Sale. “Life is a Journey” 5K/10K is still scheduled for October 11th. We remain hopeful these events will take place.
We at Keuka Comfort Care Home have been assisting with the care of the terminally ill, their families, and loved ones since we opened our doors. Our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers thank you for that privilege. We will again reopen our doors to those families in need of assistance as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, in appreciation to our staff, KCCH continues to pay financial obligations to staff members. Please stay safe and healthy and follow the guidelines to keep our community as infection-free as possible. Please feel free to contact us at 315-536-1690 or our website www.keukacomfortcarehome.org.
