Family Fun-tastic!

The summer wind made the setting perfect on Friday, August 10, for the most delightful event of our year, the Family Day picnic. Under the tents and awning of the east Marywood entrance, Residents welcomed their loved ones to a delicious meal and a relaxing afternoon. As attendees were encouraged to go Hawaiian, leis were distributed, with Hawaiian shirts and muumuus spotted here and there throughout the crowd.

Setting up shop on a prime piece of real estate were Sister Mary Jane and Sister Agnes Marie whose merchandise table included Marywood plush bears, T-shirts, and sweatshirts. Our long-time friend Alison was there to share her artistic skill at face painting, and partygoers also enjoyed Chaz and Loretta Russell’s glorious performance as the Gratitude Steel Band. Of course, all this merrymaking can only happen when fueled by fine food! Food and Nutritional Services rose to the occasion and a rotating crew of Marywood's finest from multiple departments took care of serving those in line. This year's luscious selection included hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, coleslaw, baked beans, watermelon, soda pop, and sherbet in raspberry, line, or orange flavors.

What a great get-together it was! And how lovely to see three and four generations savoring the afternoon breeze, good food, and one another. Memories were made that day to keep us warm all year long. We send our grateful thanks to all who came to the party and especially to those who worked so hard to make it happen.

Marywood Nursing Care Center has a Five-Star Rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). This rating was developed by CMS to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing care centers.

In addition, Marywood has once again been recognized as one of "America's Best Nursing Homes" by U.S. News and World Report. U.S. News evaluated more than 15,000 homes nationwide. This year, just over 2000 homes earned the designation of a U.S. News Best Nursing Home. The Best Nursing Home designation is given only to those homes that demonstrate appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in national quality measures.

Thank you for taking such wonderful care of my Mom. We feel blessed to have been a part of the Marywood family.
