It is always a pleasure to have the Chipley Head Start children come to visit our home.  The children bring so much fun and laughter to the elders and the elders give them hugs and help with their projects.  This intergenerational program has been consistently active since 2012.  This month the children were able to come and share new songs that they have learned including a rendition of Frozen “Let it go.”  The Elders enjoy the interaction and are able to give back by helping the children color or create a project.  It is a win-win for all.  Our Elders are looking forward to next month when the children come back for Valentines Day.

We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.

Sent to Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center by the daughter of Elaine Engram upon her passing:

Your kind and thoughtful expression of sympathy is deeply appreciated and gratefully acknowledged.  Thank you all for the loving care you gave our Mother for the fifteen months she lived in your facility.  We were very pleased with the attention you gave her.  Thank you, too for honoring her on your Hall of Fame in October.  That was very special.  Hall #3 was outstanding.  We “fell in love” with everyone we got to know.  They were loving, gentle, caring for her every need.  Our prayers are with you as you care for all your patients.

From the family of Mr. Clyde Brandon who passed away on November 24, 2014, at Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center:

To all the Staff of Washington Rehab Center-

Thank you to everyone who cared for my father in his last days.  Thank you to Rehab and the Nursing Asst’s for their kind and professional care.  I was especially grateful to Marsha the LPN on Station 2.  She took the time to discuss my father’s meds and care so that as a family my brother and I could make good decisions in his behalf.  He died peacefully and quietly which is what we had hoped for.  Thanks again.
