INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES WITH LOVED ONES AT OUR FACILITIES IN MORNE DANIEL AND GIRAUDEL
As you will all be aware I am currently off Island in the UK. Following the catastrophe in the wake of Tropical Storm Erika it was impossible to make contact with anyone in Dominica due to damage to communication lines etc. I am certain you had the same experience.
I can confirm that I have been able to speak with members of the PHARCS Team and can report the following:-
THE MORNE DANIEL FACILITY
Other than a little water ingress on the ground floor of the Facility we have had no damage and ALL OUR RESIDENTS ARE SAFE AND WELL.
Electricity was restored yesterday and so the phone line is now working. The Number is 1-767-449-2872.
The water supply has not yet been restored but we have plenty of bottled water and the Team have organised water for bathing and cleaning the Facility.
We also have adequate food supplies and when I spoke with staff yesterday lunch was being prepared and all Residents had already enjoyed a wholesome breakfast.
THE GIRAUDEL FACILITY
Two of the rooms at this Facility took in quite a bit of water but the Team at the Facility worked tirelessly and both rooms are back to normal. Residents were not affected by the water ingress.
Currently there are no electricity or water supplies at this Facility but we have two huge water storage tanks, one of which was filled on the eve of the storm with water supplied to the Facility by DAWSCO. We also have supplies of bottled water for drinking.
The Team have put arrangements in place for lighting at nights and I am informed they have adequate supplies of battery-operated lamps.
Hot water for bathing is provided via the solar-heating system.
We also have adequate food supplies at this Facility.
The Phone line is operating and you can call the Facility to speak with your loved one on 1-767-448-5493.
Rest assured that your loved one continues to receive Premium care at our Facilities.
I hope the above provides you with some comfort. If you wish to contact me directly please in-box me via this forum I will contact you.
