December has been a really busy month here at Welcome Home. This month we will welcome three new people to our team. New Director’s of Resident Services in Red Wing and North Mankato; a transfer of a current Director of Resident Services to our New Ulm Community; and a new Regional Director for the Northern Region. Also, we welcome back a Director who just welcomed a new baby boy home! A big thanks to everyone who has been helping out over the past month, you were very much appreciated.
With the holiday spirit in the air, several of the communities have either had, or will be having their annual holiday party. Thanks to the team and to all of the volunteers who are helping to make these events a success! To view pictures of these events, head over to each communities Facebook page where they have posted pictures of the residents and their families.
With education being such an intregal part of what we do, the final planning stages are being finalized for our Annual Winter Conference here at Welcome Home. Each year, Welcome Home Management hosts two educational series events for our team members. For the first time, our Winter Conference will be held in our home office in Hutchinson, Minnesota. Last spring, when we moved offices, we renovated part of the new building to include a large classroom, an education kitchen and a small conference room. These renovations to our new office space allows us to host this major event in Hutchinson. The education group which is made up of several Director’s of Resident Services and RNs have already spent a lot of time putting together this event and are already in the early stages of planning for the Summer Workshop.
