Our staff had some fun celebrating National Nursing Home Week in May:

It was Wacky Wednesday for Nursing Home Week! Our staff surely dressed for the occasion.

We like to have fun around here! Staff and residents celebrated Nursing Home Week by dressing in their favorite sports apparel today.

Spring Leadership Development Institute

Heritage of Elmwood leadership, along with leadership from Grace Lutheran Communities and the managed partners hold quarterly Leadership Development Institutes as a way to live out our promise and pillar of being the employer of choice. In these institutes, we train our team leaders important facets of being a leader. This quarter’s topic was crucial conversations. Our team learned how to have better interactions around important and constructive conversations.

CEO Raymond Weiss, Chief Human Resources Officer Bryan Bessa, and HR Employee Experience Specialist Angela Ludwigson presented on March 18th’s LDI. Our team did a great job and we look forward to the next one!

Heritage of Elmwood Nursing Home in Elmwood, Wisconsin is a community-owned long-term care and short-term rehabilitation center.

Updated Visitation Guidelines

We are so pleased to share that, in light of new guidance released recently by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is based on continued distribution and administration of COVID-19 vaccines, we continue to ease up indoor visitation guidelines.

Our ability to continue to offer visits into the near future hinges on the health and wellness of our residents. For this reason, we may have to restrict visits to specific visitors if our Visitation Guidelines are not able to be followed. Additionally, if facility enters outbreak status (one case of COVID-19 in the facility), visitations will be put on hold until facility has determined it is safe to allow visitation again, in accordance with CDC and CMS guidelines, and in conjunction with the local public health department.
