Trinity Golf Classic

Friends of Trinity-

We hope that this letter finds you well and healthy!  We are pleased to tell you that Trinity is staying healthy thus far.  During visitor restrictions, residents have been happy and engaged with door to door events, such as happy hour, virtual calls to family and friends, remote control car tricks, manicures, resource cart offerings and much more.  We miss our usual Trinity traffic and all who come in to help out and visit with residents. 

After much deliberation and prayer we have made the choice to cancel the 2020 Trinity Golf Classic.   We want to thank all family, friends, and donors who make The Classic a success year after year. Sharing this special day with you and uniting our wonderful community, is what we will miss the most.  Beyond uniting friends, the golf tournament is a major fundraiser. Funds from last year bought us the resident bike that has been unbelievably successful and fun!  Residents are loving these outdoor bike rides and it has brought such enjoyment and enrichment to their lives!  If only you could see the smiles and hear the laughter as we bike through neighborhoods and listen as residents reminisce about their young days on a bike.   YOU made this possible. 

Every year the Golf Committee (Volunteers and staff) forms a list of items Trinity Campus is in need of that our operating budget does not cover.  This year, our wish list includes: outdoor chess board, electric piano, built in music player for terrace lobby and dining area, Oculus go headset and computer for resident activities.

If you wish to donate to Trinity’s wish list, please know that it would be deeply appreciated.  “Expressing Christ’s love by providing care that values every human life” is our mission, and unfortunately this year that means social distancing. We look forward to the time when we can all be together again.  Until then, we want you to know that we are working our hardest to keep our residents happy, HEALTHY and safe.  It is nothing short of a privilege to work in this community, with these fine people and we appreciate all of your support!

Mark your calendar for June 14th, 2021 of next year!

Sincerely-

The Trinity Campus Staff and Golf Committee

Trinity Care Center announces contract with VA

Trinity Care Center has entered into a contract with the Minneapolis Veterans Health Administration.

The VHA contracts with a select group of nursing homes for service on behalf of its veterans. Currently, there are 63 nursing homes in the Minneapolis Veterans Administration Health Care System coverage area with VHA contracts. VHA will pay for nursing home care if the veteran meets eligibility criteria which include service connected status.

Service connected status refers to the relationship of a veteran’s disability due to military service.

Elizabeth Letich, Trinity Campus administrator had been looking for ways to provide long term care services to veterans and this contract has proved beneficial for local veterans.

“Trinity is proud to be able to provide care to the men and women who served, putting their lives on the line to protect ours,” Letich said.

Questions regarding eligibility for long term care services with Trinity can be directed to Trinity’s social worker, Robin Bisel at 651-460-1155. Trinity Care Center is located at 3410 213th Street and is part of the St. Francis Health System.

Trinity recognizes all veterans we provide services to throughout the year.  Upon admission, residents are asked if they are a former veteran.  If resident is a former veteran we honor and recognize them by posting a veteran’s plaque outside the resident’s room.
