Dear Forest Hills
Family and Friends,
As you are all aware by now, Forest Hills has revealed our new approach to LIFE! Our commitment to serving our residents and assuring the highest quality of life can now be seen in our new .life websites and email addresses;
please remember to update your bookmarks and address books with our new information.
All urls and emails are the same, just replace .org with .life -- it's that easy!
After much thoughtful progress, Forest Hills' kitchen renovations are now complete and we are excited to announce the official re-opening.
Thank you all for your patience as we continue to improve the living environments at Forest Hills. Next up: a renovation of the elevator located off the main entrance doorway, leading up to the 2nd floor of Assisted Living. Stay tuned for more updates.
You may remember from last month the introduction of our Wellness Program. This new exercise program is designed by a physical therapist and tailored to each resident; it includes cardio, strengthening and balance exercises.
We are excited to offer this program in an effort to assist our residents in remaining active and healthy. After their therapy is complete, a resident can come down to the gym as often as they like and workout on their own.
Effective March 8, now offer another laundry service option for assisted living residents. In addition to residents leaving items for laundry in the laundry rooms, you may also elect to have laundry picked up from your apartment.
Housekeeping will provide laundry bags to all assisted living residents and we ask that laundry items are placed in these bags and left outside your apartment door
. There will be only one pick up on the designated days: at 8am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. We are pleased to offer this complimentary service. If you have further questions please contact Charlene Perry, Housekeeping Supervisor, at 202-777-3316 or
Finally, I am pleased to announce a successful Department of Health Assisted Living survey of Forest Hills of DC! Our standard of care is apparent in all that we do, and it is always nice to be formally recognized for our efforts.
Sending my warm regards,
Mary Savoy, RN, MS, LNHA
Executive Director and Administrator
