What COVID precautions do I need to take when visiting my loved one?
Please refer to the COVID Updates section.
What articles of clothing should I bring?
We recommend approximately five changes of clothing and a pair of comfortable rubber-soled shoes. All articles should be washed, clearly labeled with the resident’s name in permanent ink, and entered into the patient’s personal inventory log in the medical chart. Other personal items should be marked or engraved for identification. We advise that patients do not keep valuable jewelry or large amounts of cash in the facility.
How often will a physician or health professional visit?
Physicians generally see patients upon admission and once every 30 days thereafter. However, our nursing professionals are in constant contact with all of the physicians that visit the facility. Some insurance companies require that physicians visit more often. Check with our nursing staff for further information.
How do I find out about activities provided for the resident?
We strive to create social programs and individualized activities to match the capabilities and needs of each patient. This also has a powerful impact on the healing process of those patients involved in some type of rehabilitation. Specific activities include active resident councils, musical performances, current events update- reading the newspaper, singing exercises, fitness activities, stretching exercises, religious meetings, outside entertainment, games, trivia, history, and volunteer involvement. We also strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings, candlelight dinners, ice cream socials, and other special events. We always welcome friends and families to visit and attend our special events.
What do I do if I have personnel concerns?
Our primary concern is that you feel comfortable and that your needs are being met. You should feel secure and at ease with our staff, particularly those providing your direct care. If you have any concerns or praise for our staff, please feel free to contact our social services department. They will be able to address any apprehensions you may have regarding any particular staff members.

You may reserve the activities lounge for any special events (birthday, holidays, meals) with notice.
