Family picnic held outdoors at Bon Secours Charity Health System’s skilled nursing facility

WARWICK – (September 17) On Thursday, September 13, Schervier Pavilion residents, family, staff and  volunteers gathered together under clear blue skies to enjoy a “Grandparents’ Day” picnic.

It was a great opportunity for generations of families to visit their loved ones and to enjoy a traditional end-of- summer celebration. The staff prepared lots of barbecue favorites and families and residents enjoyed picture perfect weather while gathering in one of Schervier Pavilion’s outdoor patios for the celebration. And the popular singer Rick Salucci was on hand to provide musical entertainment for the afternoon. But most of all, residents stated that they enjoyed getting together with their families and staff members for a fun afternoon.

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 Grandparent’s Day to thank the wonderful families who are essential to the quality of life we offer at this facility,” said Schervier Pavilion Director of Recreation Kari Call. “Family members serve on our decorating committee and often lend a helping hand to our staff. We’re happy that we could enjoy this occasion together as a family.”
