Mom Loves The Comfort Zone!
Mom has been going to the Comfort Zone three times a week for three years. She loves it and so do we! She has made wonderful friends who love her and engage her. The nurses and CNAs are just as loving, caring and attentive. The activities director is a firecracker who keeps mom busy...There is a monthly caregiver's support group - a great way to blow off steam and ask questions. We are so blessed to have such a safe, loving and caring facility right in our backyard. Chris, daughter of Millie

Information on Advance Directives

- The Geriatric Services Department provides information about Advance Directives to those 65 and older.
- Free door-to-door shuttle service to hospital outpatient treatments for qualified senior and disabled residents.
The Lifeline system offers peace of mind for anyone living alone.
- Wear the Lifeline pendant around your neck.
- If a medical emergency occurs, simply push the button on the pendant and you are in immediate contact with a Lifeline monitor.
- Your monitor quickly assesses your needs and contacts, as directed, either a family member or professional help, such as a rescue squad.
- The Lifeline service is on call 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week.
