Message from the CEO

Dear Friends,

As we ended the month of October, we successfully navigated a nasty Saturday weather system on the 27th to host our annual Community Fun Fest. With animals, clowns, balloons, games, art projects and food, the Home was filled with more than 150 multi-generational guests enjoying each other's company. How grateful we are to have shared the Home with so many of our neighbors and how thankful we are to those who joined with us to make this a very special day - Friendship Children's Center and Northwest Neighbors Village. And, most certainly, we want to thank the ANC3E for their continued generous financial support for this annual event.
We are thankful, too, that we are able to celebrate another Thanksgiving and holiday season with the residents, their families, friends, our volunteers and our supporters. What we do here at the Home is not a solitary undertaking; rather, it is through the combined efforts of many individuals coming together with a common purpose that we are able to enrich the lives of seniors in need. When we here at the Home stop to think about what we are grateful for, we must always remember that we owe our thanks to all who put trust in our work and help support our mission of service. As we prepare to enjoy this very special time of year, we send from our home to yours wishes for a very special Thanksgiving.

Lisner-Louise-Dickson-Hurt Home Named  as One of  Best Nursing Homes in DC area by
U.S. News & World Report

WTOP News announced on Tuesday, October 30, that the 
U.S. News & World Report awarded the Home one of the "Best Nursing Home" distinctions in the country for 2018-2019.  Based on an evaluation of more than 15,000 nursing homes nationwide, the Home is a local standout excelling in not only the overall rating, but in the rating of short-stay care.  According to a statement released by U.S. News, this is the first year it has included a rating for short-stay care (less than 100 days). The new rating is aimed at patients who might need "intensive rehabilitation or nursing services before they return home following a surgery, stroke, accident or illness."

Staff Begins Flu Shot Campaign

The Home kicked off a week of educational events for all staff from October 15-20 for International Infection Prevention Week.  Jackie Saint-Amour, Assistant Director of Nursing, and Meghan Mattero, Nursing Facility Unit Manager who helped organize the campaign,  held a "What are Germs Day?" complete with several display boards; "Dress Like a Germ Day," (may the best germ win!); "What Germ are You?"; "Infection Control and Movie Day;" followed by an all staff in-service on flu prevention and administration of flu shots. 

As the 2018/2019 flu season has begun, all staff are encouraged to receive the flu shot and take everyday  preventive actions to reduce the spread of germs.  Congratulations to those Departments that have achieved 100% compliance on receiving their flu shots!
