All personal items are brought to the facility at your own risk. We will mark all personal clothing and items for identification purposes. We ask that you do not bring any valuables, expensive jewelry, medications or electrical appliances.
We encourage you to bring in furniture or pictures so the residents can feel comfortable in their new home. If you wish to bring furniture, please contact Social Service department. The facility prefers washable vinyl lounge chairs. If a cloth chair is brought into the facility and develops an odor, you are responsible for removing the chair from the facility or having it professionally cleaned. The Maintenance department will be happy to assist you with hanging pictures.
If you would like to have snacks in the room, please place them in a sealed container. Any food items that requires refrigeration must be consumed the day it is brought into the facility. There is not adequate refrigerator space to keep large quantities of food.
