Staff at Eskaton Village in Placerville serenaded its residents last week — lifting their spirits while sheltered in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The inspiring singalong to “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers was the idea of Eskaton employee Christy Nordell.

“We have the best employees and this was amazing,” Nordell said. “We wanted to do something to spread some happiness around here.”

“We did this for our residents to lift their spirits and in the process it lifted our staff’s spirits as well,” added Jennifer Davis, Eskaton Village sales counselor.

“We also want our families to see their loved ones smiling and having fun through these tough times when they can’t see them. It’s such a difficult time and we’re honored and blessed to be able to be a part of their lives and help them through this unprecedented time.” View Photo Gallery.
