Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

I just wanted to say thanks for the great care you provided my husband's grandfather; I know he was not always the easiest. His grandmother spoke very highly of an LNA named Rose and the nursing staff. Your team was beyond supportive we just want to thank you!
Thank you for taking such good care of our patient. We appreciate the teamwork in supporting he and his family.
-Your Healthcare Partner
RHR gave me two more years with my mother, I am so appreciative for that. I never thought that years later I would also be here. My experience has been wonderful. The staff are amazing, rehab is excellent and the food is good. Thank you for everything you do.
Amazing staff and good food
Thank you for everything you do for me everyday. The staff is amazing, the food is good and this place saved me. My mother was also here several years ago and you were able to get her well enough to come home and gave me 2 more years with her. I will always be grateful.
Thank you so much for setting up and cleaning the conference room for the luncheon after my mom's funeral. Your assistance, organizational skills and planning at a time when we felt so scattered was an incredible help. It allowed us to concentrate on Dad and get emotionally prepared for the funeral services. We are grateful for your help at a difficult time." - The Family of M.G.
The world is a better place...
