    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! Ginger

    The Valentine’s Day Mystery: “Murder at Denbigh Manor” 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!
