WARWICK, NY (December 26) – It was a joyful afternoon at Schervier Pavilion on Saturday, December 21.

Santa paid an early visit that day and spent several hours posing for photographs with residents and their families along with his merry, “Ho, Ho, Ho!” 

The staff also prepared a table of holiday treats, cookies, punch and other refreshments

Schervier Pavilion, a member of the Bon Secours Charity Health System, is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility licensed by the New York State Department of Health. Dedicated to the highest standard of health care excellence, its full range of services, such as its therapeutic recreational program, are designed to respond to each individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

In addition to quality long term care services, Schervier Pavilion also offers a wide range of short-term (sub acute) care needs. Its sub acute services include IV therapy, Rehabilitation therapy and wound care. These services afford residents the ability to recuperate for a short time in the sub-acute unit of the facility and then return to the community where they can resume a more independent life. In some cases, they can then enter Schervier Pavilion’s Day-At-A-Time, an innovative medical adult day care program that provides nursing services, medication administration, ongoing evaluations, and stimulating activities tailored to each individual’s needs and abilities.

“We hosted this event to give our residents and their families an opportunity to share a holiday tradition together,” said Schervier Pavilion Director of Recreation Kari Call. “And we’re happy that everyone could enjoy this day regardless of their generation. We publish a calendar every month that’s filled with interesting and entertaining things to do throughout the day as well as some evenings. And we always seize the opportunity to celebrate holidays and seasonal events. Therapeutic recreation is essential to the quality of life and the quality of care of individuals receiving health and human services at our facility.”
