Winter 2013 Semester Begins

The healthcare residents  and assisted living residents at Cedar Village Retirement Community in Mason, Ohio are thrilled that the Winter Semester of Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) is in full swing. This project, in partnership with the Scripps Gerontology Department at Miami University in Oxford has provided an amazing opportunity for people living with dementia the ability to create beautiful artwork with only a small amount of assistance by trained OMA volunteers. The mood is peaceful, and the residents are given the space to expand their minds in creative ways that are truly incredible. From working with sponges to other media, these pieces look like the works of professional artists. This semester, we have 7 new residents, along with 4 new volunteers this semester who are benefiting immensely from this program.

Funds provided to Opening Minds Through Art will support the sustainability of this program for future residents living with dementia at Cedar Village.

Gift Giving in the Spirit of the Seasons

This past Chanukah and Christmas, fairies descend upon Cedar Village to grant special wishes to the residents living in healthcare and the rehabilitation units of our retirement community. Each year as a part of the annual Mitzvah Day tradition, residents are surprised with a gift that they expressed as something special.

Whether it’s a cherished CD of jazz music or an electric toothbrush, each gift is meticulously sought after. It’s an amazing feeling to see the expression on these residents’ faces as they unwrap their special something.

It’s because of the generosity of donors like you that Cedar Village is able to provide these extra added acts of kindness to our residents. It is our goal to fulfill the lives of our residents while granting wishes. And for Mitzvah Day, this annual tradition is it!

Hospice Patients with Enriched Lives

Cedar Village's Hospice Program is developing to not only make the lives of those patients enriched, but to also ensure family members comfort and security through individualized care.

One of the goals of end-of-life care is to focus on quality of life care for patients and their families.  As a result, very strong relationships between patients and caregivers develop over time. 

Recently, a Cedar Village Hospice patient had been in the hospital.  Death was imminent and the hospice team was aware that it was very important to both the patient and his daughter that he not die in unfamiliar surroundings, The team arranged his release from the hospital so that he could die in a peaceful home setting,  Just a few short hours after his release, he died at home.  His daughter was extremely relieved and grateful that hospice was there to fulfill this wish.    

As our hospice program grows, we will focus on community education so that others can die peacefully in their “home.”

Thank you for your support!
