February Heart and Hands
Where there is love, there is life.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
We are quickly approaching Valentine’s Day and finding new ways of sharing God’s love with the New Glarus Home family. During the season of love, I reflect upon viewing the love shown to our residents and patients by the amazing New Glarus Home staff. Each day the staff provides care and services to the many faces that call New Glarus Home their home. I am always pleasantly surprised to have a resident or family member share with me their experiences with our staff and the high quality, dignified care provided throughout both our New Glarus and Monroe campuses.
Serving older adults is a calling that our staff has answered with abundance.
That said, I am thrilled to share that our renovated memory unit on our New Glarus campus is coming to completion. The program space is designed to provide memory support through its design and programming. We know the challenges for our residents struggling with memory loss. Our program is designed to support their activities of daily living and aid the resident when a care need arises. If you or a loved one would like an evaluation, please call our admissions office that is able to meet with you to discuss the options for support.
Our Wellness Center in the Chalet at Glarner Village is busy welcoming new members into the program. Sam Zumdhal provides fitness assessments, exercise classes, and personal training to older adults both inside the New Glarus Home community and the outside community at large. Sam’s customized approach considers your current physical capabilities and your goals moving forward. If you would like more information, please call Sam at the Wellness Center at 608-527-2126.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your most loved.
