With the winter months upon us, please remember to dress residents warmly; in the facility and when they go out of the building. Residents are on some medications that make their blood thin and they are often cold when we are sweating. It is influenza season; remember to do good hand washing and use standard precautions with all residents. Please get your flu shot if you have not gotten one.
With the holiday season upon us, take an extra few minutes to ask our residents about their Thanksgiving or Christmas memories. Keep in mind that some of their family members may not be with them. Listen with your hearts and you will be rewarded tenfold. Our residents have great experiences and love sharing their lives with us.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all our amazing staff, family, friends, and of course our residents!
