Dear Families,  

Welcome to April’s news!  We look forward to enjoying all the signs of spring together at the center this month.   

Special Announcement

Alzheimer’s Walk will be on Saturday April 13th at Worlds Fair Park if you would like to donate or help please see Meghan in Activities.

This month, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launched a new requirement for long-term care centers regarding “Enhanced Barrier Precautions.”  You will see our team wearing gowns and gloves occasionally in the center.  This added level of precaution protects patients who might be more vulnerable if exposed to any multidrug-resistant organisms that live on the body.   

  We wanted to make sure you understand this is for extra precautions not because there is a new virus or germ in the center. As always, we appreciate your help in infection prevention! Washing our hands is the best way to prevent germs from spreading.

Here are the events for the month:

Easter Party will be on April 1st at 2pm We will have live entertainment from Raymond Akers on the 10th at 10am and Friday April 19th at 2 from Paul Indelicato We are viewing the solar eclipse at 3pm on the 8th baking chocolate chip cookies on the 25th and having an ice cream social on the 4th at 2pm Bingo will be every Tuesday now.
