Some residents may take a more active role while others are content to be in the same room as fellow residents. We gently encourage residents to get involved at any level. We have community volunteer involvement and strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities. Mealtimes, holidays, and other activities can be great family time activities.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings, ice cream socials and more. We also take the input of residents and family when considering new activities. Please see our Events section on our home page for more details on upcoming events.
Should you wish to have the facility wash the laundry please notify the front office upon admission and the complimentary service will be arranged. Subsequently, if a caregiver will be taking the laundry home, please let the nursing station know of your plans so we can take the appropriate steps to notify our housekeeping department to leave the clothing for the caregiver to pick up. Regardless of laundry preference all clothing and personal items must be labeled with the resident’s name, NOT initials or room numbers. Our staff will be happy to provide labeling assistance. Personal laundry is washed in an industrial washing machine at a temperature of 180 degrees. Make sure that your loved ones’ clothing is appropriate for these hot temperatures. Avoid bringing clothing that requires cold or warm water, special care or is subject to damage and fading.
We recommend approximately 5-7 changes of clothing and a pair of comfortable rubber-soled shoes. All items should be washed, clearly labeled with their name, and recorded into the residents’ personal inventory log. Please advise your loved one’s nursing station of items you are bringing in so that they can assist with this process. We advise that residents do no keep valuable jewelry or large amounts of cash in the facility.
Please call, as visitation guidelines are ever-evolving.
You may reserve a common area for special events such as birthdays, holidays, or special meals. Advance coordination with the facility activities department is required.
