It's been a fun week for our residents and staff. This week's theme is everything lemons.

On Monday afternoon, activity staff delivered lemonade to residents in their rooms. On Tuesday, both residents and staff were invited to the activity room for lemon foot soaks and...

We were hesitant about canceling our annual benefit. This would have been our 11th annual Homecoming Day benefit, and breaking that felt like breaking our momentum. Why cancel a good thing?

Thanks to our Activity Director, Mary Beth Banwart, and our Maintenance Director, Dan Magnuson, the system was up and running in April and has been goin...

Over the past few months, we've been blessed by the support of our community.
