From The Administrator A note from the Administrator: I cannot believe that we are approaching SPRING!!! Something to look for-ward to! I want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has been patient with the facility with the sickness that has come and gone throughout the last few weeks. It is that time of year! During these winter months it would always be a good idea to give the facility a call before visiting. We kindly ask that if you, or anyone you know, refrain from visiting the facility if they are feel-ing ill! The safety of our residents, staff AND visitors is of utmost importance to us!! We look forward to sunshine and warmer weather and everything that goes along with it!! Be safe! Kelly Larson MBA, LNHA
