Dear Residents, Families, and Staff:
Warmer weather has arrived (a couple of times since winter) and the patio
furniture is in now place – so, go out and enjoy our two (2) beautiful
courtyards. The Master Gardeners have been busy making our courtyard
gardens and flower beds beautiful for everyone to enjoy.
Our Activity and Dietary staff are planning some outdoor activities, treats,
and meals for summer. Watch the calendar for special summertime events
in the coming months.
I would like to wish all fathers a very Happy Father’s Day on June 21st!
Have a wonderful summer!

Summer is here and we are all looking forward to the warm sunny weather!
We hope everyone takes the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful courtyards this
year. Please remember to stay well hydrated and protect yourselves from
sunburn by wearing sun screen and don’t forget the sun glasses!!!
This month we will be celebrating
National Certified Nursing Assistant Week.
This week long celebration will take place June 11th thru the 18th. Please help
us thank them for all the wonderful care they provide. We have some of the
best caregivers and are truly blessed to have Them!!!!!!
A reminder to our residents: Please don’t give any personal information
over the phone to someone you do not know. There are a lot of scammers out
there who make a living out of taking innocent persons money and can sound
very convincing. If you receive a phone call and someone is asking for
personal information such as checking account/banking information or
personal identification questions simply hang up. If the phone calls continue
please let your family or KDH staff know.
Happy Summer!
