To all Family Members:

We are happy to announce we remain COVID FREE!

February is Therapeutic Recreation Month. Therapeutic Recreation is an Activity Therapy that is designed to improve your loved ones health and quality of life. This could involve physical, emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing activities and is designed to provide enjoyment, challenge and rehabilitation opportunities for our residents. We will be doing a few different activities this month to help celebrate our Recreation Team and all the hard work they do for our loved ones. Thank you to each of our dedicated Recreation Staff members, and our Recreation Manager who all do their best to care for our loved ones.

As I mentioned last week, we will be starting our Family Council next month over Zoom! We will have our first meeting on February 18th at 6 pm. If you are interested in signing up, or want more information please reach out to the Community Relations Manager at mtoth@retirementconcepts.com.

Communication

We will continue to provide families with a weekly email update that will also be posted under COVID updates on our Retirement Concepts website.
