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

We invite families and friends to please join us in any of our 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.

April is the first full month of spring! We are excited to finally have warmer weather, and we are planning to spend a good amount of time outdoors. Our special events for the month include: Solar Eclipse Viewing on April 8th at 3:00pm, Operation Christmas Child with Volunteers from Two Rivers Church on Tuesday, April 9th at 10:30am, Live Musical Entertainment with Raymond Akers on Wednesday, April 10th at 2:30pm, Intergenerational Spring Crafts with Kindergarteners from Primrose School on Wednesday, April 16th at 10:30am, Live Musical Performance with Paul Indelicato also on Tuesday, April16th at 2:30 pm, Out-Trip to lunch at Lakeside Tavern on Wednesday, April 17th at 10:30am, Local History Presentation, Battle of Campbell’s Station with Bill Hopwood on Tuesday, April 30st at 2:30pm.
