Welcome to February and all that comes with it! While we are still working together to ensure everyone is safe and healthy, we can’t wait to get back to large group activities, which resumed a few days ago!

Like so many other times in the past years, we again came together and worked hard to protect each other and those we love. It feels as if we are always thanking our community for all they do…but that’s because we are so grateful for our wonderful team and family here at Arbor Springs.

Speaking of family, we have an exciting announcement. Sarah Stanisz, our Education Director, is moving on up to a corporate position after 18 and a half years here! We will miss her and are excited for her chance to grow and ours as well! She’s been an invaluable leader here, and we’re glad we will still get to see her and work with her!

With all that’s going on, and since February is a month of love, let’s remember how lucky we are to share such an amazing community together. We love making every day here the best it can be, especially on the days when that seems much harder than usual. So take a moment and feel the love!

“What is your favorite thing to do with residents?”

To do their hair and makeup.


Just to visit together.


Singing hymns and doing bible study groups.


I just enjoy interacting together — singing, dancing, holding hands.




Sit down with them and give a good hug.


To talk with them.


To serve them the best food in the world and see them smile!


To talk about memories with them.


To sing to residents and color together.


Reminiscing! I love to hear about their past.


Sing and dance!


To sit together and play gospel music. They love it.


To take them their clean clothes and fold them together.


Going for walks and finding food! It’s my go-to for joy; laughter and smiles for both of us.

I love to sing and dance!


I love to paint nails, do makeup and give massages.
