Letter: Thankful for support at a tragic time

By Barb Atchison, Administrator, Crossroads Care Center, Worthington

The tragedy that occurred at Crossroads Care Center on May 2, 2014 has had an impact on our residents and their families, our employees and our community.

Although this was an isolated incident and no one else was in harm’s way, it has made an impact on all of us. We hear or read about things like this happening — but it is always someplace else, to someone else. Now, we know it can happen here.

The Worthington police have told us there was no way we could have foreseen or prevented this tragedy, and we are saddened by the loss of life in such a heartbreaking manner.

However, we are so fortunate to work at a place where we can help others; we will get past this and continue to provide professional and loving care to our residents. This is a wonderful, caring community — and I thank you for your support as we continue to provide loving care to the senior citizens of our community.
