Committed to the Resident Experience
By Geri Krupp-Gordon, Chief Operating Officer
In the next few newsletters and blog posts, we're taking a closer look at our CARES values. Here's a deeper dive into how our team is Committed to the Resident Experience.
As Capri's Chief Operating Officer, I am so proud of how Capri and each of our employees are Committed to our Residents' Experiences. One of my favorite things to do each evening is go on Facebook and see pictures and read stories about how our residents are experiencing Capri's GROW and memory care programs. Here are just a few recent highlights:
- Nada, our Memory Care Manager at Gables of Germantown, is getting married in October and residents are helping her plan her wedding. In January, they helped design her dress.
- Our memory care and assisted living communities participate in the Alzheimer's Poetry Project which uses poetry to inspire creative self-expression, reduce social isolation, and provide social and intellectual stimulation. Gary Glazner, the program founder, visited Village Pointe Commons and participated in a session with residents (a photo from this session is shown in this article).
- Killarney Kourt residents were entertained by the Racine Dairy Statesmen, a talented a cappella group.
In February, so many great experiences are planned throughout our communities. Hyland Campus will host its annual Sweetheart Dinner (a resident favorite), the Gables of Germantown kicks off their health and happiness educational series, and Casa del Maré at St. Catherine Commons is hosting its 8th annual Chili Cook-Off event!
