Hello all, the Happenings newsletter has morphed
into a terrific communication tool, so I too will add
my voice. I understand from the “My InnerView
Satisfaction Survey” that most of you are very happy
with the services you receive at Warwick Forest,
and that is great. I use the survey results to help the
team decide where we should focus on improving,
because there is always room for improvement.
I will use this space to keep you informed of all
the positive things that are happening, as well
as recognize team members who go above and
beyond. I am depending on you to let me know
where recognition and credit is due through the
Riverside Care Difference nominations. Just drop a
note in the boxes located throughout our buildings
or leave it with the Front Desk Receptionist.
One of the most important initiatives that I
want to achieve this year is to improve customer
service. I am working with my team of Directors to
make this happen because your happiness is of the
utmost important to us. One ongoing refinement
is with the Fitness Programs. The Riverside
Wellness and Fitness Center began managing our
programming the later part of 2014. They will
continue to refine programming and offer ways
to help you achieve your fitness goals. Current
facility improvements underway this month include
the resurfacing of the pool deck. The Keswick Gym
is being refurbished and space for therapy services
is being added to improve our Assisted Living
programming and coordinate a continuum of care
between therapy and fitness. How we handle the
residence annual evaluations is also improving.
The Director of Resident Services, Brigitte Jones,
conducts annual residence reviews to identify
maintenance needs in your residence. Within 90
days of the review, Brigitte will re-inspect to ensure
that maintenance staff completed everything to
your satisfaction. In this way, we will be on top of
your residential maintenance needs, another area
of importance you identified in the My InnerView
Survey. Here’s to a great 2015!

Tales of History
with Vanessa Cole
l Friday, February 13th
7 p.m. (Community Room)
Most people look at the Civil War as being
simply divided: North vs. South and having
no gray area. However, there were some who
were fighting for or helping the South that you
might never expect. These are their stories.

The Valentine’s Day Mystery:
l Thursday, February 12th 6:30 p.m. (Community Room)
Murder! Murder most foul! Murder in High Society!
It is 1926, in a stately manor house in beautiful East Sussex, England.
The elegant old home is none other than Denbigh Manor – the estate
of Lord Malcolm Denbigh – the 8th Viscount of Richmond. The problem
is that the grand old gentleman is no longer with us – as he was murdered
on Valentine’s Day – whilst his home was full of guests visiting for
Valentine’s Day festivities.
All the guests and servants had been interrogated by the local constabulary
yesterday (the day after the murder). But the case was so baffling that
Inspector Todd of Scotland has been called in. All the “persons of interest”
– both upstairs and downstairs at the Manor – have been called
together for a final cross-examination by Scotland Yard.
Be part of the detectives who solve this truly baffling mystery.
What were the motives? Why was Lord Denbigh so disliked?
Who would gain from his death? Why were voices raised in
anger? Help solve the riddle of the Chocolates.
Help Scotland Yard get their man – or woman!
