This is CNA week! Help us recognize our amazing team of CNAs and caregivers at Fairview Haven and Serenity Villa!
They provide excellent care day after day. Please leave comments and we will share.
We're thankful for the distanced outdoor visits as an opportunity to connect with loved ones.
Please contact Dixie - firstname.lastname@example.org or 815-692-6706 to schedule a visit.
Thank you to Joe Delaney for donating bags of cards and notepads for the residents! Others have donated in the past also. We appreciate this! Sympathy cards are particularly always needed.
The courtyard garden is flourishing! We're enjoying lettuce, spinach and radishes.
Is there anything more day-brightening than a basket full of puppies?
In appreciation for our administrator, Dave Blunier, the Fairview Haven team signed and posted this banner outside his office. As you can see by the comments, Dave's caring leadership is much appreciated by the team here. Thanks, Dave, for all you do! And thanks to Hayley Vedder for the idea and for having the banner made.
Testing is going well today ... most of our team has passed thru the outdoor tent site. Much appreciation to our friends at Circle K in Fairbury who gave us treat bags to sweeten the day!
All dressed and ready to test the Fairview Haven team and residents. Please pray for all negative results!
Thankful for generous hearts in the Fairview Haven family and in our community!
Incredible Memorial Day Parade tonight in celebration of Fairview Haven residents and honoring our veterans. Thanks, family and friends!
