Cherry Lane Improvements
Much work has taken place over the past year to plan for the renovations to Cherry Lane that have been promised and made possible by generous donors.

The delay in proceeding has been due in part to new standards required to remove hazardous materials contained within the existing walls, flooring and ceiling of Cherry Lane.  A hazmat report has been completed that outlines the steps and precautions needed to do this work safely, for both employees and residents.

The planned renovations include the tub room with a shower and new therapeutic bathtub, a dining room and kitchen, and opening up the existing nursing station to make it more accessible for seniors.  The twenty-person dementia care neighborhood will also get a fresh coat of paint and decorations to freshen up the living environment to current expectations.

In their own words

"On behalf of my family I wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the staff and volunteers who provide kind and caring support to our dear Mom. It is a great comfort for us to know she is safe and in a peaceful spirit despite her many years with dementia. You have become her surrogate family in our absence, and we are eternally grateful. Psalm 41:1 states "How blessed is he who considers the helpless; the Lord will deliver him in a day of trouble." May God richly bless and strengthen you all as you continue to be a blessing to residents in Tabor Home."
~ Phyllis Bolton, daughter of Tabor Home Resident and member of the Family Council.
