From the Administrator’s Desk:
Dear Residents, Families, Friends and Staff,
I wanted to thank all of you that have stopped by in the last couple of months to comment on some of the changes you have viewed as positive in the facility. Our goal overall is to ensure that your family member or loved one is receiving the best possible care. At times in order to accomplish that end we do have to make some changes in the facility, whether it means some new paint or wallpaper, a change in policy, or sometimes unfortunately even a change in a staff member that works in the facility. My goal is to make sure that your family members are safe and well taken care of, and they must always be my first priority. Occasionally we will have to release a staff member to pursue opportunities elsewhere, but please keep in mind this is always with good cause. At times family members or visitors will ask why a staff member is no longer with the facility. In order to protect the former staff member’s privacy we do not openly share this information with families, residents or visitors. There are any number of policies, regulations and laws that we have to follow here at the facility, and it is my responsibility as administrator to ensure that we are in compliance with any of these in our control. Please understand that while a decision may not always be easily understood, it is made with the best intentions of the residents in mind.
I am hoping that families and visitors find the parking situation better in the facility lot at this time. Most staff members are parking offsite to allow families to park closer to the facility. As always parking in the fire lanes is not allowable and very likely would result in your vehicle being towed off the lot.
Please inform a staff member if you have any questions or concerns regarding your loved ones care. We would be very happy to take care of any concerns you may have, but we need to know about the issues in order to care of them in a timely manner.
Here’s hoping that we are finally rid of the ice and snow once and for all, so we can finally start enjoying some warm spring weather. This would be a good time of year to assist the resident’s to go through their clothing and change out their winter clothing for warmer weather clothing.
