- Access to Personal Health Information – We welcome residents, power of attorney, next of kin, and/or executive decision makers to have easy access to health and treatment information.
- A Care Partner Program – Our Care Partner Program is for family members, friends, and/or significant others who wish to take an active, and/or hands-on role in the care of a loved one. Care Partners are a valuable member of our care team and staff are happy to support you in this role.
