SCHERVIER PAVILION RESIDENTS ENJOY EARLY VISIT FROM SANTA
WARWICK, NY (December 16) – It was a joyful afternoon at Schervier Pavilion on Saturday, December 15.
Santa paid an early visit that day and spent several hours posing for photographs with residents and their families while handing out gifts and raffle prizes along with his merry, “Ho, Ho, Ho!”
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.”
Schervier Pavilion will also host its annual Christmas party for residents on Friday, December 21.
