John Croghan draws an analogy between the COVID-19 recovery journey and mountaineering.
âMost injuries during climbing happen during the descent,â when caution is usually not as paramount as the climb, he said. âThe bigger goal is to climb safely to the top, not to retreat safely to the bottom.â
Croghan says the same can be said for the unprecedented battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The statistics are encouraging and the vaccination rates are cause for optimism,” said the executive director of The Landing in Williamsburg Village. âBut the COVID-19 shadow still exists. Conditions are moving in the right direction, but we know that can change. “
That said, it’s currently a time of celebration at The Landing, one of Emmanuel’s iconic retirement communities:
ï® Life enrichment activities returned to The Landing, including the resumption of communal meals for its residents in early April, and in-person visits with loved ones resumed.
ï® Additionally, a âfirstâ in The Landing’s 20-year history recently occurred when the South-Central Lincoln Retirement Community received Lincoln’s Choice Award, generating the most votes in the Best category. Senior Living Community. The winners and nominees were announced in a special edition of the Lincoln Journal Star last month. The recognition program, in its 10th year, celebrates the city’s best restaurants, grocery stores, healthcare providers, golf courses and more, relying on the Lincolnites to vote for their favorites.
