From the Nurse's Corner

With the winter months approaching it usually means more cold/flu symptoms. We need to be more vigilant about keeping an eye on our health to keep down the spread of infections.

Handwashing is the #1 tool we have in fighting against bacteria. 
Being alert of any symptoms can also help us keep the spread of bacteria down as well.

If you start to exhibit any symptoms that may be contagious, such as sore throat, fever (higher than 100.4), recurring vomiting or diarrhea, drainage from 1 or both eyes or an uncontrollable cough, please consult with the nurse on duty immediately.

We have to work together to keep our home safe and infectious-free.

Dining Update Section

Aramark is proud to join forces with Shannondale to create the area's premier independent and assisted living community. Aramark is one of the world's largest food service companies and serves meals to troops, students, patients, and everyone in between all across the world.
