A NOTE FROM OUR INCOMING ADMINISTRATOR

I wanted to take a moment to let everyone in the Grant Rehabilitation and Care Center family know how excited I am to be a part of your community!  I was born and raised in Parkersburg, West Virginia and remained there for over 30 years.  West Virginia has always been home to me and I couldn’t be any more ecstatic to be returning to the state I love!  My husband and I are looking forward to our move from North Carolina to Petersburg with our two Australian Shepherds and getting to know all of you!

Best Regards,

Teresa Halliday

 

THANK YOU FROM OUR OUTGOING ACTING ADMINISTRATOR

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Board of Trustees for allowing me the opportunity to advance into the position of acting administrator and supporting me the past three and half months.  This privilege has provided me with the experience and knowledge to grow in my nursing career as well as a future in administration.  A special thanks to all the employees that have supported me and those that had added duties during this time.  I want to welcome Teresa Halliday to our GRCC team.  I look forward to working with Teresa as our new Administrator.

Christina Thorne, RN, DON

NOTES FROM SOCIAL SERVICES

We have been trying to set up a Family Council on behalf of the facility.  A Family Council is an independent, self-determining group of Grant Rehabilitation and Care Center residents’ families and friends.  It will be geared to family member’s needs and interests, democratically governed by family members of residents, and sponsored by our Social Services Department.  Its goals would be to protect and improve the quality of resident’s life in our facility, provide an opportunity to identify, address and resolve issues for residents, and provide support for Council members and for families of new residents.  The Family Council would be able to provide feedback to the facility in order to advocate for their family members, and to improve resident’s care. 

We would like to cordially invite you to a Meet and Greet at our facility’s chapel on March 10, 2020 at 6:00 PM to discuss setting up a Family Council.  If you have any questions, or would like to have more information, please contact Ravenna Redman, MSW/DOSS at Social Services office at (304)-257-4233, ext. 5242.

 

HAPPENINGS IN ACTIVITIES

The week of January 19-26 was Activity Professional Week, and I wanted to recognize my staff for the wonderful job that they all do. I am blessed to have four enthusiastic ladies working with me in the department. They all bring different talents and personalities to the job; giving the residents days filled with joy, meaning, and a good quality of life. I know as the Activity Director, having these ladies as my staff makes my job much easier; and the department would not be the same without them. They are a blessing to the residents and to me.

As always if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call and I would be glad to talk to you about it. You would be a blessing to someone, and you would receive a blessing just by spending time with our residents.

God Bless

Cindy L. Evans Activity Director
