Super Director of Senior Living Peggy Eicher has a kind heart. The director of our Ursuline Sisters Senior Living Ministry has worked extra hard during this pandemic to lessen the hardships for our residents. Peggy, with gift bags of hand sanitizer and masks she recently made for the residents. In addition to keeping in constant contact to make sure the residents’ needs are being met, she’s offering support services that include weekly COVID-19 fact sheets, and providing residents with hand sanitizer and disposable face masks. When restrictions were their most stringent, Peggy and our Sister Darla Vogelsang also created a safe chapel space in the Ursuline Center’s auditorium. Ursuline Sisters Senior Living was established in 2013. This ministry provides independent living for people ages 55 and over of moderate income. “Residents — who include, women, men and couples — enjoy, socialize, and look out for one another,” says Peggy, who also is an Ursuline Associate. “Thirty four residents have lived here since the ministry began and several of the original residents continue living here.” The ministry also provides the current 23 residents many opportunities for physical, spiritual, social and educational growth, with access to numerous programs on-site offered through the Ursuline Education & Wellness Center, such as SilverSneakers land and water classes. While classes and events have been postponed during the pandemic, we’re working to restart our programs as soon and as safely as possible. And rest assured that we’re praying for the safety of you and your loved ones during this pandemic, and that all will be over soon.
