Greetings Everyone.  I’m so thankful spring is here.

I wanted to mention to our families of resident’s who are Medicaid clients, that the state of Iowa has accepted another MCO (Managed Care Organization).  The new MCO is called Iowa Total Care.  We are not going to contract with this new MCO currently.  So please do not switch over to this one, because if you do your loved one may not qualify for services.  We are asking everyone to stay with their current provider.  You may receive some information in the mail from the Department of Human Service and possibly Iowa Total Care or perhaps even a phone call asking you to switch.  Please do not, and if you have questions, feel free to give Amy my assistant or myself a call.

National Volunteer week is upon us.  It takes place from April 7th through April 13th.  We are blessed here at Mill Valley and Sunrise Villa to have so many volunteers.  Our volunteers help make our facility what it truly is.  A warm friendly place to live!  Thank you all for your dedication, and may everyone have a wonderful Easter.
