Winter’s snow and ice makes it an especially dangerous time for seniors due to the increased risk of falling. Snow and ice on untreated walkways, parking lots and stairs result in uneven and slippery walking surfaces. This significantly increases the risk of falling – especially for seniors.
At Elderwood our core values drive the care we provide. They are easily summed up and remembered through an appropriate acronym – I CARE: Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect and Excellence. Our dedicated nursing team offers, perhaps, the best example of how we live our core values.
We celebrate National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2019) to recognize professionals across all nursing disciplines for the incredible life-affirming and often life-saving work they do every day.
