Evansville Manor: Skilled Healthcare & Rehabilitation

From the Administrator

January 2017

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, it was even white this year!  And a Happy New Year, as I assume this newsletter will come out after the 1st.  Remember, if anyone received new clothing for Christmas, be sure they are labeled with names.  Also, it might be a good time to go through closets/clothing, etc., to ensure sufficient storage space for everyone.  We are very grateful to residents and families who do this periodically.  Overly full closets make for wrinkled clothing.

I have nothing exciting to report except that I hope everyone has great success in their various resolutions.  I avoid them and, therefore, it's one of the few areas of my life in which I don't often fail.  Also, this month we'll have a new President and administration.  No matter what your politics, this could be very interesting.

As always each month at this time of the year, I need to remind everyone to be sure and get influenza vaccinated, especially prior to visiting our residents, and also especially for children.  Anyone exhibiting respiratory distress symptoms, or if in contact with those who are, should refrain from visiting.  If anything is questionable, or if someone has not been vaccinated for any reason, they should mask, covering both the mouth and nose, when in the building.  The Wisconsin Division of Health advises that influenza has increased in the area, especially for those over age 65.

It should also be noted that any gastrointestinal distress symptoms (often call stomach flu) should also be addressed in the same above manner as indicated for influenza.  AND "ALWAYS WASH THOSE HANDS"!

As has been suggested previously, we are including a listing of the employees who will celebrate Evansville Manor employment dates during this coming month. We, therefore, want to acknowledge all of those employees accordingly and you will find the current month's personnel in the attached.  Congratulations to all.  We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to us and our residents.

Have a great January and remember the days are now getting longer.  Before you know it we will be returning to Daylight Savings time.  Think positive.
