Rock With Us Saturday Apr 20, 2013
Rock for Communications Equipment!
The Little Sisters and staff at Jeanne Jugan Residence provide for the necessities of our entire family of
residents from independent living to skilled nursing. As their needs change over time, so does the level
of care we provide. In order to continue providing the same quality care and maintaining the safety of
our residents, we are replacing our outdated and inefficient paging and phone system. We understand that
we must employ best practices that leverage technology to improve not only the bottom line but the quality
of resident care.
We have a proven track record for placing resident care as our number one priority as noted in being awarded
a perfect five-star rating for the past four years. U.S. News & World Report examined more than
15,500 nursing homes to select 39 with perfect performance ratings in 2012. With four quarters of perfect
five-star ratings from the Federal
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in all three areas—health inspections, nurse staffing, and
quality of care—Jeanne Jugan Residence distinguished itself again as one of the nation’s best care communities.
In addition, we were a recipient of the 2012 Excellence Awards in Hospice & Palliative Care from the
Delaware End-of-Life Coalition.
Please join us by participating in our Annual Rock for the Aged fundraising event, which will benefit our
communication equipment needs. On April 20, 2013, Rock for the Aged, our 6th annual rocking chair marathon,
will be held, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at our Home. Residents, staff, volunteers, family members and
friends are joining the Little Sisters of the Poor to seek sponsors to keep the chairs rocking and help meet
our goal of $30,000 to be utilized for the funding of the essential pager/phone system.
In addition to joining us for this fun-filled annual event, your sponsorship/donations will assist us with our
partnership with the Feinstein Foundation’s 16th Annual $1 Million Giveaway to Fight Hunger Challenge Campaign.
All donations in March and April 2013 will be utilized by us and subsequent contributions from the Feinstein
Foundation will be divided proportionately among all agencies who have participated.
