Many hands were on board on August 16 to help move many residents into their new, private rooms! It was a very busy day, but all was accomplished in one day and the residents were happy to be in their new homes. We want to thank the volunteers, friends, family, and staff who participated in this successful endeavor.
We have been very lucky to have had such nice weather this summer, and the residents are taking every opportunity they can to get outdoors. There is still a lot more outdoor fun to be had in September, so we are hoping for many more days of sunshine. We are planning an outing to Sawtooth Ridges to visit all our friends there on September 15. Another outing is planned for lunch at the Senior Center on September 22, and on September 27 we will take a fall leaf tour of Maple Hill.
Our last picnic of the season is planned for Labor Day. There will be hotdogs from the grill and all the picnic fixings!
We have transitioned! On April 1, 2016, we officially became Cook County Hospital District d/b/a North Shore Health. We celebrated with cake and treats in the conferece room for all employees. You should begin seeing the use of the new logo as items are purchased and reordered. Every employee was given a new shirt with the new logo and name.
