Maple Knoll Village, a continuing care retirement community in Springdale, is pleased to have been found deficiency-free on its 2016 annual State Survey in Skilled Nursing.

According to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services annual Nursing Home Data Compendium there are less than 10% of Skilled Nursing Facilities that achieve Deficiency Free State Survey in the United States. The survey evaluates the overall quality of life and quality of care of the facility to ensure it is operating by the Department of Health’s standards.

Bodmann Pavilion, the Skilled Nursing Facility at Maple Knoll Village consists of 145 beds offering both semi private and private rooms. Maple Knoll’s team of professionals develops an individual care plan based on various need levels. Services include long and short-term levels of care, skilled rehabilitation, a dementia/memory support unit, Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy, a Hospice care wing and an on-site Physician clinic.

Shelley Acus, Director of Nursing for Maple Knoll Village, shared “We have an exceptional team of caregivers at Maple Knoll, the results of our survey are a testament to that. In fact, the survey team congratulated us on the confidence, and compassion of our staff. Because of this dedicated group we are able to provide exceptional care for older adults in our community.”

Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors, Let’s Do Lunch: Volunteer with Meals on Wheels

More than 10 million seniors in the United States (that’s 1 in 6) currently face the threat of hunger and 15 million seniors are living alone in isolation. And, each and every day, Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver one million meals to those who need them the most.

Many people know Meals on Wheels as a food delivery service for the homebound. However, what they don’t know is how impactful the moments of contact between the volunteer and the recipient can be. For many seniors, the volunteer who drops off their meal is the only person they will see that day. The delivery isn’t just about nourishment; it’s about a valuable moment of human connection. And in turn, it’s those moments of human connection that make volunteering so rewarding.

We know firsthand that Meals on Wheels clients are some of the country’s most inspirational and interesting people, full of wisdom and stories. Our volunteers have noted time and again that these experiences are what keeps them coming back to Meals on Wheels, and deepens their connection beyond food delivery.

With the senior population projected to double by 2050, Meals on Wheels needs to recruit a whole new wave of volunteers to serve the growing need. Meals on Wheels, which consists of more than 5,000 local programs in virtually every community in America, relies on an army of two million volunteers who deliver meals to seniors in need every day between 11am-1pm. These volunteers are crucial to the well-being of seniors across the country. With the majority of the current volunteer base over the age of 55, there is a real need to encourage and recruit people of all ages to get involved, donate their lunch break and volunteer.

What can you do? You can experience these special moments of human connection right here in Cincinnati by volunteering with Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors. If you can’t stray too far from the office, donate your lunch break and participate in meal delivery close to your work. We have opportunities for volunteers to help by driving a meal to a deserving member of the community. Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors delivers meals on 20 routes a day so drivers are always welcome to join our mission of providing meals to the elderly in our area.

Sign up to volunteer with Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors and start making a difference right here in our local community today. Feel free to visit our website or Facebook page as well as contact Joshua Howard with Maple Knoll Communities at 513-984-1234 with any questions or concerns.

Growing Meals on Wheels program at Sycamore Senior Center seeks volunteers

As the elderly population continues to grow so does the need for Meals on Wheels services in the Cincinnati suburbs. “We currently deliver meals on over 20 routes each day and we depend on driver volunteers to make that happen.” said Bonnie Dwyer, the Sycamore Senior Center Volunteer Coordinator, “We’re seeing a growing need in the Roselawn, Sharonville, Glendale, Forest Park, Greenhills, Hartwell, Brentwood areas.”

Over the years, Sycamore’s Meals on Wheels program has expanded its services to include special menu choices that meet dietary restrictions and more flexibility in the delivery of meals. Clients can now select which meals get delivered and they can also have a choice for which days they receive their meals.

“Delivering meals to the elderly and disabled is an extremely rewarding experience that doesn’t require a lot of time,” said Ms. Dwyer. Most volunteers offer one or two hours per week Monday through Friday to deliver meals to approximately 12 to 15 homes on a route.

Ms. Holloway also wants to be sure that seniors and the disabled from Loveland all the way down to Deer Park are aware that this service is available to them. If you would like more information about the Meals on Wheels program or to volunteer, call Bonnie Dywer or the Outreach Coordinator Rod Torbert at 513-984-1234.
