Did you know …
that both nursing homes (Case Manor & Pinecrest) are much more accessible these days! You no longer need to set-up appointments, but will need to wear a mask while inside. I’m sure the residence would enjoy a visit! Since it is flue season, please call first to make sure they are not on lockdown.
