Wow! I am always honored and amazed to see how Lutheran Life Villages staff pulls together to accomplish great tasks. This was on full display in the month of October as the team at Anthony Boulevard and beyond prepared for not one, but two open houses for the renovated Magnolia Lane memory care neighborhood and Oak Terrace rehab neighborhood, the completion of the first phase of Project Connect and Renew.
Everyone from maintenance to nursing, social services to dining, housekeeping, laundry, admissions and IT staff all played a part in completing the spaces for the ribbon cutting on October 16th and the public open house on October 17th. At the ribbon cutting, we honored Betty Lou Henschen with the honorary giant scissors and she did a wonderful job opening the renovated spaces for guests to tour and admire. In addition, we had over 150 guests visit the following day for our open house.
Not only did I hear wonderful comments about the space, but also many stories about family members who have had such positive experiences at Lutheran Life Villages. If you’ve not had an opportunity to tour the renovated spaces, please contact Rachael Painter, Director of Admissions, at 260-447-0800 x2118. Our next milestone will be to move residents into the new spaces which we anticipate in the next few weeks.
I am honored and proud to have the opportunity to serve at Lutheran Life Villages. Everyone should be proud of the results of Project Connect and Renew. The healthcare center has received a renewed mechanical system. The memory care program and rehab program have renewed spaces to deliver the high quality compassionate care driven by our LIFE values. Our clinical staff will be joined together as one providing rehab, memory care and nursing services together in the same building for the first time in many years.
Congratulations to the Anthony team on this wonderful accomplishment as we continue to strive to serve the Lutheran Life Villages mission and execute our vision to be a thought leader, a provider of choice and an employer of choice in northeast Indiana.
