Rock With Us Saturday May 10, 2014

Rock for Medical Needs!
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 beds and mattresses in our skilled nursing units. We understand that we must employ best practices that leverage technology to improve not only the bottom line but the quality of resident care.

Five Star Rating
We recently were awarded a perfect five-star rating for 2014 via U.S. News & World Report as the only nursing home caring for the elderly in the state of Delaware to receive a perfect score on the ratings from the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in all three areas—health inspections, nurse staffing, and measures of medical quality of care.

10am - 2pm May 10
Please join us by participating in our Annual Rock for the Aged fundraising event, which will benefit our medical needs (resident beds and mattresses). On May 10, 2014, Rock for the Aged, our 7th 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 $35,000.

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 17th Annual $1 Million Giveaway to Fight Hunger Challenge Campaign. All donations in March and April 2014 will be utilized by us and subsequent contributions from the Feinstein Foundation will be divided proportionately among all agencies who have participated.
