"NEW SBCC CLASS" MUSIC OF OUR LIVES AND TIMES

A NEW CLASS PRESENTED BY SBCC: “MUSIC OF OUR LIVES AND TIMES" with Professor, Susan Gomez.
My class is a retrospective of music from the 20th Century focusing primarily on the music residents are most familiar. Music starting in the 40’s, some 30’s (what our parents were listening to on the radio), and artists like Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and others. Then we’ll move into the 50’s with Elvis, Connie Francis, Doo-wop, etc. I use original recordings whenever possible. I’ll bring my karaoke machine to entertain, show musicals from the 40’s and 50’s, give a little biography of each artist we explore and will introduce a history blurb to set the stage. Lastly, I will have an impromptu game of “Name That Tune. Join the FUN every Thursday at 3:45 p.m. beginning October 25th. Family and friends are invited to sign-up for this class.

FLU SEASON IS UPON US! GET YOUR SHOT AT THE VILLA

The Flu is peaking earlier this year and is widespread in our area. Dr. Gregt Hendey said, "people usually develop Flu symptoms two to three days after they're exposed to the virus, but are most contagious the day before symptoms develop. So before you even know you're sick you're already spreading the virus." He recommended that people wash their hands often, stay in their rooms as long as possible and avoid close contact with anyone coughing or sneezing AND get your Flu Shot! The Villa teamed up the Central Coast Home Health. They have offered to give the Flu Shots to the Villa residents and employees. On Thursday, October 11th. at 1:00 p.m. in the Game Room. Just show up and present our Medicare Card or Insurance Card.
That's it...easy. If you miss Thursday the 11th, try to join us on Thursday, October 25th at 3:00. See you in the Game Room.

NATIONAL ASSISTED LIVING WEEK

Dear Friends,

Assisted Living Week is an opportunity to pause and celebrate our mission to serve seniors and their families. In keeping with the old adage of "It takes a village...", our mission is carried out daily through a core set of onsite teams at our communities nationwide and the behind-the-scenes supporters that provide the necessary support so that all team members in the community can do their jobs day in and day out.

Personal Care/Nursing:
All caregivers, who not only provide the clinical care and support to meet the residents' needs, but who also provide the emotional support with plentiful hugs, smiles and laughter that makes a difference in our residents' days.

Food Services:

Our staff who is responsible for preparing and serving nutritious and delicious meals to our residents and making sure that their preferences are met, for meals are often considered the highlight of their day.

Housekeeping and Maintenance:

Our staff who is responsible for keeping the properties clean and in optimal shape and keeping the residents' homes feeling like home.

Life Enrichment:

Everyone who is responsible for providing the programming and daily activities that keep our residents active and engaged in the things that they love to do.

Business Office/Administration:

All administrative staff who, daily, handle all residents' and families' needs, regulatory and compliance issues, property upkeep and employee support.

Our mission is further supported beyond the core teams and support staff at our communities, through our regional teams and our colleagues from the home office.

In reflecting on why we do what we do, it is important to remember the reason we are here. Our residents. Please take a moment this week to thank your residents and family members for choosing us and allowing us to care for them or their loved ones.

We appreciate everything that you do - make it a great celebration!

Brett Lee Colleen Honnors

Chief Operating Officer Director of Quality and Clinical Services
