ROCKDALE RESIDENCE & REHAB NEWS

Manor Oaks is now under new ownership as of July 1. Our facility is excited about this transition and our first step is a name change.

Manor Oaks will now be known as Rockdale Residence & Rehabilitation Center. Our new owners, Paragon Healthcare Group, are very involved in our facility and our community.

We are striving to make positive changes in the building and we welcome everyone to come visit as we go through this transition.

In addition to our new owners and new name, we have other changes in motion.

Every month we celebrate our elders birthdays on the first Thursday of every month. Beginning in August, the new time for this celebration will be at 2 p.m.

We hope that everyone is able to come celebrate our elders birthdays with cake and punch. A very special thank you to all the churches in Rockdale who supply cake and punch during this wonderful celebration.

Also, beginning in August, our Family Service Committee will be meeting at 3 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month. Family involvement is needed and appreciated for this committee.

Another program we have implemented is our Caregiver Support Group. This is an outreach program designed for anyone in our community that is struggling with a family member that may be declining physically or mentally and hospice, home health, assisted living, or a nursing center may be an option.

We encourage anyone to come share their story and get the support from other participants in similar situations. We meet the 1st Thursday of every month at 4 p.m.

A new program we are excited to announce is our 65 and over Golden Era Club. This club is designed to bring in volunteers that are 65 and over to befriend and mentor our elders. We have many activities planned for these mentoring sessions.

If you are in the Golden Era and would like to mentor some wonderful individuals in our facility, please join us on the fourth Thursday of every month at 2 p.m.

Every month we will have a large family/community event. This month we celebrated Fourth of July with hot dogs and hamburgers.

In August our families are invited to a Family Reunion on Aug. 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. Please mark this date on your calendar. More details to come soon.

Please join us in welcoming Paragon Healthcare Group and all the wonderful and positive changes they are bringing to us.

Rockdale Residence & Rehabilitation is located at 222 S FM 487 in Rockdale.
