The snow has just picked up in our second Nor’easter in a week. We are fully staffed and some staff members have come to work with an overnight bag, prepared to stay the night. In Friday’s storm we lost power for about six hours and our generator provided all the energy we needed. If needed, we’ll use it again today. Our seniors are all warm and well cared for and we’ll make sure the heat, power and care continues!
February is celebrated as Recreation Therapy Month, sponsored by the American Therapeutic Recreation Association. Our Community Life Department plans and implements a variety of social and recreational activities for residents. Programs are designed to enable residents to participate in both past and new leisure interests. The department is staffed by trained professionals with diverse backgrounds in the areas of recreation therapy and music therapy. We’d like to thank our Community Life Staff for the incredible work they do to improve our residents’ lives!
Andrus on Hudson has received a 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS,) part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. This overall quality measure is the highest level a nursing home can achieve. We are proud of our five star recognition and grateful to all our staff who truly care about our seniors.
