Summer is finally here and we are pleased to share our Summer 2019 issue of “The View,” a quarterly newsletter from Cedar Hill. We hope you will find this an enjoyable and useful read. Our goal is to improve communication and foster community across our campus.
Let’s get outdoors!
It’s that time of year after a gloomy winter and spring. Our summer will be filled with time on the terrace or the gardens, a boat trip on Lake Sunapee, our Father’s Day Car Show, Senior Fitness Day, BBQ days, and other fun outings. Let’s absorb all the Vitamin D and fresh air we can.
In this issue, you will read about the importance of fitness even when we are at our oldest. Fitness and exercise not only help our bodies, but also helps us emotionally and cognitively. We have a variety of programs to help our residents stay fit and many participate in our balance, yoga and other fitness classes. We also have our therapists, therapy assistants and restorative aides to help residents on an individual basis. Read all about this in Megan Foster’s article.
One of our most rewarding days of the year is our two days of staff awards – one at Cedar Hill Health Care and one at the Village at Cedar Hill. We give awards to our staff for perfect attendance, longevity, and in our other categories. The staff, residents, and families vote for the four awards: Hero, Most Positive, Most Professional and Team Player. Look inside to see the winners.
Our Annual Father’s Day Car and Tractor Show is one of our biggest family events of the year. It’s a fun day for families to visit and enjoy their family member, root beer floats and old cars that bring back good memories. We hope you will join us this year.
Our Family Picnic is our big event during our lovely Vermont summer and fall. We will be announcing the September date.
Enjoy these busy days of summer,
Patricia and Mary Louise
