Public Events at Pathway to Living ® Communities Postponed

The health and well-being of our residents and team members is always our top priority. Pathway to Living® is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to proactively limit risk of exposure to our residents and team members. The CDC's greatest concern at this moment is the rapid speed of transmission, causing large numbers of people to become sick. With this in mind, we are postponing all public events in our communities until further notice.

Although we currently do not have any active cases of COVID-19 reported at any community, Pathway to Living® is taking proactive measures to safely address this public health concern. In addition to our preventative measures and safety protocols already in place due to regular flu prevention, we are taking further steps to monitor and limit exposure to reduce the risk of infection. We have a simple, front desk screening process in place to support scheduled and walk-in visits from families and guests.

We ask that you refrain from visiting our community if you are ill, have traveled to a high-risk country or have been exposed to someone who has traveled to a high-risk country.

We will post updates as events are rescheduled. If you or a family member have questions regarding regularly scheduled visits or appointments, please contact your Executive Director directly.

To learn more about what Pathway to Living® is doing to maintain health and safety and to stay updated with COVID-19 developments and resources, please visit CDC.gov and pathwaytoliving.com .

Sisters Reunite at Memory Café
At a recent Stoney River Marshfield Memory Café, two sisters reunited after nearly a lifetime apart. One sister, Esther, lives at Stoney River assisted living, and the other, Irene, lives in memory support. 
 
After Esther got married and moved to Illinois, Irene stayed in Wisconsin and worked a farm with her family. With the demands of farming and family, the two sisters drifted apart. 
 
They reconnected at a Memory Café and shared a joyful sister moment at February’s Valentine-themed gathering.  “It was so awesome,”  says Valerie Meddaugh, Stoney River's VIVA! Life Coordinator. “ Irene hugged Esther so hard at the end, they almost fell over.”
