Satisfactions surveys will be opening in September. If we have an email for you we will be emailing it to you, otherwise it will be mailed. 

We are striving for a 100% response rate. We love hearing your feedback and we are available with listening ears whenever you want to talk about your loved ones and the care that they are receiving. We want everyone to feel comfortable speaking to us year round, however, the annual satisfaction surveys are helpful for us to see our areas needing growth and improvement. The results are then shared with our whole team.

We put a lot of effort into improving the areas that our results show are needing the improvement. 

We will be hosting an event at Bickford in November to disscuss the survey results as well as our new goals for improvement. 

As always our goal is to enrich the happiness of our residents. This survey just helps us to track how successful we are at enriching happiness.

 

We will have themed baskets in the formal dinning room as another way to raise awareness for our walk in October. If you would like to have a chance at recieving one see Karryn.

 For the safty of our residents we have updated our security system. Two family members of each resident will receive a  key fob that is assigned to them. Please speak with Annessa if you are still in need of one. Other family members or visitors can still use the doorbell and our staff will be notified. If you would like adiditional information on how our new system works please see Annessa.

Thank you for your patience during this transitional period.
