ROCKDALE RESIDENCE & REHAB NEWS


GRADING TIME—The paving project of Texas Street in east Rockdale has begun as county crews start dirt work. The resurfacing is actually part of the City of Rockdale’s annual paving project. Texas Street is unique as members and Pastor Royal Johnson of Rising Star Baptist Church, which is on that road, went out and found deals on supplies and approached the county in helping with the project, making a presentation to the city council earlier this summer.

Reporter/Mike Brown What a great September we have in store at Rockdale Residence & Rehab Center.

Let us first start by sending out a very special congratulations to Shontavia Murray (Tavia) for being our August Employee of the Month. Thank you Tavia for all you do. You are very much appreciated and loved.

Congratulations to Julia McGill for being our August Resident of the Month. We are so happy to have her and have united her with other family members. She is a wonderful person and we are happy to have her as part of our family.

Rockdale Residence & Rehab has started a new networking team including marketers, case workers, social workers and hospice representatives. This networking team is very involved in our Rockdale Senior Center.

In September, please join us at 11 a.m. Sept. 5 and 9 for special presentations. Also, join us at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 25 for a roaring game of Bingo.

The week of Sept. 9 -13 is National Housekeeping Week. The staff here at Rockdale Residence & Rehab would like to take this opportunity and say how much our housekeeping & laundry staff mean to us. They are hard working, caring and our building would not be the same if it wasn’t for their dedication to the building, the elders and the staff. Thank you.

Please don’t forget to join us at 2 p.m. Sept. 26 for our 65 and older Golden Era Club. This program is designed to bring in volunteers that are 65 and over to befriend and mentor our elders. This is such a huge opportunity for our elders and the community to engage with each other. If you are in the Golden Era and would like to mentor some wonderful individuals in our facility, please join us.

A very important date for us is Sept. 5. At 2 p.m. we celebrate our elders birthdays and then at 3 p.m., we encourage family members to join us for our Family Service Committee Meeting. At 4 p.m., please join us for our Caregivers Support Meeting which is open to the community.

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