What's New?
This Thanksgiving we are so grateful for our staff, our residents and our families. This is the perfect time of year to recognize the compassion, patience and understanding that has been shown during the pandemic. Through it all, I am very proud that our team has continued to put resident care first.

Our staff was honored to receive a touching note of thanks from one of our families. Below is a brief excerpt:

"Never forget how much you are all appreciated! We may not always say it when we see you in the hallways, but believe me, you are all in our daily prayers to keep going and smiling as best you can during this historic time. You have been tasked with such an important mission in the care that you do, please never give up." - Family of Rosa Coplon Resident

Thank you and happy Thanksgiving!

It's the Holiday Season!
The season of giving thanks and gift giving is upon us. We know that you appreciate the hard work of all of our staff members. Thank you to our many family members who have shared notes of thanks or other items with our employees. Items such as thank you notes or food for teams and departments is always appreciated. Please remember that employees are unable to accept individual cash tips or gifts.
Reminder: Please Plan Ahead for Safe Travel!
The holidays have arrived and we all love to include our loved ones in our holiday festivities. If you are considering taking your loved one out for the holidays, and they currently transfer with the assistance of 1 person, we ask that you contact the Therapy Department, 716-639-3311 ext. 2122, to arrange for training prior to taking your loved one out of the facility. This will allow the therapy staff to schedule an appointment with you and your loved one to go through any mobility training that would be needed and assist in providing the safest and most stress free outing possible. Thank you for your assistance and understanding. And Happy Holidays!
