Fun in the Sun
Memorial Day is on the horizon, signifying the unofficial start of summer, which means more time enjoying the great outdoors. As the season of sun shines upon us, it’s important to keep skin cancer prevention and sun protection top of mind, especially for older adults. Helpful tips include always using sunscreen, staying in the shade, only venturing outside in the early morning or afternoon, and wearing long sleeves. We’ve got several outdoor events lined up in May, including scenic bus trips (limited capacity), a Memorial Day barbecue, and a “Dash n’ Dine” themed dinner for our professional referral network. As we continue to safely increase activities and social opportunities for residents and team members, our community is more than ready to return to the traditions we’ve come to know and love.

Nathan has worked in geriatric care since high school, obtaining his certified nursing assistant’s license at 18 and earning his nursing diploma from Technical College of the Rockies last May. Nathan previously worked in phlebotomy, assisted living, memory care, cardiac acute stay and short-stay rehab. As a licensed practical nurse, Nathan brings a wealth of hands-on professional experience to The Lodge at Grand Junction and we’re stoked to have him on our marvelous team!

For many senior living communities, the biggest lesson of 2020 is this: togetherness is healthier than going it alone. Last year, our team members rose to the challenge of protecting residents’ health and safety, while creating new, socially distanced ways for them to stay stimulated and engaged. Through dedication and innovation, The Lodge at Grand Junction and communities nationwide were able to showcase the advantages only a senior living community can provide. Check out our latest blog to see how.
