We encourage children to visit as they are therapeutic to our elderly residents. If you are bringing children to the facility under the age of 12 please just inform the individual’s nurse.
Is it okay for a pet to visit?
We also encourage pets to visit as they are also therapeutic to our elderly residents. They are considered part of the family. Please remember to clean up after them and take proper safety measures at all times. All pets are to be kept on a leash and need to be current on all vaccinations.
