Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend visiting from 8 am until 4 pm. Please call in advance for after-hours visits to ensure access.
How do I find out about the activities provided for the resident?
We strive to create social programs and individualized activities to match the capabilities and needs of each resident. This also has a powerful impact on the healing process of those residents involved in some type of rehabilitation. Specific activities include: active resident councils, musical performances, current events updates, reading the newspaper, singing exercises, fitness activities, stretching exercises, religious meetings, outside entertainment, games, trivia, history, and volunteer involvement. We also strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings, candlelight dinners, ice cream socials, and other special events. We always welcome friends and family to visit and attend our special events.
Can we bring a family pet to the facility?
We would love for your family pet to visit. Please remember to clean up after them and take the proper safety measures at all times. All pets are to be kept on a leash and should have all current vaccinations.
How often will a physician or health professional visit?
Psychiatric and Medical providers come to the facility on a weekly basis to manage and evaluate residents on a consistent basis. The staff is also supported by a Behavioral Health Clinical Director to provide individualized care plans and interventions and training specific to each resident.
Can my loved one receive mail?
Mail is delivered to residents personally on a daily basis except for weekends and holidays.

How do you protect patients, staff, and visitors from COVID-19 and other infectious diseases?
Our team is highly trained and experienced in caring for high-acuity patients and infectious diseases like COVID-19. Our dedicated infection prevention nurse helps ensure we follow current infection prevention guidelines and best practices. This includes educating all staff about the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as N95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, and gowns and when to use COVID-19 protocols required by local department of public health and/or the CDC.
