Hello everyone.  I hope you all had a very nice Easter.  The weather that day was beautiful.

We have some exciting news to share.  We are currently converting our back-dining room to a new therapy room.  This space will triple our current space.  The area will include more room for individualized care, including a small kitchen area for our Occupational Therapy patients.  With these changes we will no longer be able to utilize the back-dining room for meetings and church services, however we will work to accommodate everyone in the front of the building.

For those who have loved ones on Medicaid keep in mind that the MCO United Healthcare will be no longer participating as an MCO in Iowa.  Everyone should be receiving notification of this, and before you make changes to a new MCO, please check with us first.  You may be automatically re-assigned, and if so that’s ok, however you may have to make another change depending upon your healthcare provider.  If you have questions, just give us a call and we can assist you.  We will all work through it together.

One last note, please remember that things are not to be hung on resident room doors.  This is in violation of fire codes.  Please check with staff first.

Thank you and have a great spring.
