Let’s Send Some Cheer to the Staff and Residents at Crystal Bluffs

Creating Bright Smiles at Crystal Bluffs

Help Us Send Some Cheerful Letters to the Staff & Residents at Crystal Bluffs


For the last month, the residents at our local rehabilitation center, Crystal Bluffs, have been without visitors. They have not been able to visit with their families, spouses, children, grandchildren and friends. One of those families affected by the new protocols to protect these residents is Allison Bernauer, one of our Realtors in our Atlantic Beach office. Allison and her mother Anita have been focusing on mailed letters and FaceTime to stay connected.
We hope that you will help make these beloved people within our community feel a part of our community. We hope that you will make them feel loved. We hope that you will take a moment of your day to say hello, write them some uplifting words, share a piece of art from your children or send them a funny joke.

    Message from Allison Bernauer


    My mother Anita and I are extremely close. In September she had a massive stroke. Our world has been turned upside down since then. She has been a resident at Crystal Bluffs in Morehead City since October and I couldn’t ask for better care for her. Everyone there is very helpful and all the residents receive personal attention and extra loving care. I have gotten to know the staff and many of the residents over the last 6 months.

    I visited my mother almost every day and many of her friends visited weekly. We felt that if we could have someone there she loved every day it would make her days a little brighter. Once Covid-19 came into the picture Crystal Bluffs was very pro-active and, as normal, thought about what was best for the residents there. They stopped visitors weeks before other places of business. I will forever be grateful for their attention to this crisis and for putting their residents and staff first. Although I was crushed and my mother was so sad, we have made it work by FaceTiming.

    Many of her friends and family have been sending cards and letters to help make her days without visitors better. She mentions these often, always with a smile on her face. My mother is lucky to have so many family and friends to care for her and send her cards but there are many people who could use some of that same love and kindness shown to them.

    Please join me and Bluewater by sending cards, kids drawings and letters of encouragement to the residents at Crystal Bluffs. I also want to personally ask you to send some to the amazing staff there thanking them for caring for our loved ones during this crisis. Together we can make someone’s day by showing love and gratitude to those that need to know that we, as a community, have not forgotten them.

    Thoughtfulness, Peace and Love is what the world needs right now…… Let’s start with our neighbors.


    sincerely,

    Allison
