Greetings to all, near and
I want to start this
week’s message from Woodhaven acknowledging all our
staff, residents and caregivers who have become so
dedicated to fighting COVID-19. Each week during our
team meetings, I can personally see the buy in from
everyone. Daily we practice See Something, Say Something
and Do Something! Focusing on that philosophy, I believe
keeps us all on the same page and focused on the task at
hand. It also keeps would be slackers in check knowing
that this is a very serious situation we are dealing
with and that all eyes are on anyone who enters our
doorway. With challenges, we tend to find a few bright
spots of which we can then pass on to our residents.
Personally, I have a very hard time reminding our
residents of social distancing and other concerns
especially when they have served in WW II or the Korean
War. It is at that very time that almost always we are
acknowledged with how appreciative everyone is for us
keeping rules in place and protecting them as best as
possible. With that being said, the following are a few
updates and reminders as we enter Easter weekend:
1) This week we opened our
courtyards in the Meadows and Fountain View buildings.
Weather must cooperate and social distancing must be a
focus to keep this special treat available (hopefully
two times a week). Sign up can be located at either
building front desk. For those of you off campus, please
understand that the courtyards are supervised during
this fresh air opportunity.
2) With Easter upon us, I
want to remind everyone that if flowers are sent (most
greenhouses and florists are closed), they must be held
in our foyer area for at least 72 hours due to the fact
that COVID-19 could possibly be on the plastic
container, wrapping or shielding. Also, Easter usually
warrants visitors and I unfortunately must remind all
family members of The Meadows, Fountain View and
Clubhomes, residents to please refrain from visits not
only this weekend but until our COVID -19 threat ends.
Try to utilize social media and respect the Stay Home,
Stay Safe mandate issued by our Governor.
3) If anyone is bringing
essential items to their loved ones, ALL items must be
brought to the main entrance for inspection and
sanitization. We have had a few situations that items
have been passed to residents through his or her window…
Sorry… That is STRONGLY forbidden. Keeping deliveries in
mind, please consider drops only once or twice a week.
Our front desk is limited to sanitizing materials as
well as trying to multitask as best as possible. This
will allow time for better distribution and shorter
waits for recipients.
4) I am often asked about
our supplies. My best answer is that keeping up with
demand and inventory is a challenge. We are doing the
best we can with multiple supply chains. Each teammate
knows to ration supplies as best as possible.
Again, I want to thank
everybody for continued support and prayers for all
concerned. This is a team fight. A fight that we as a
community will win!
Thank you for the opportunity to introduce Woodhaven
Senior Community to you and your family. Woodhaven is a privately and
locally owned and operated senior residential community located in Flint
Township. Overlooking preserved natural amenities of water and wildlife,
Woodhaven is Genesee County’s premier senior living residence where it
is far from just a home; it is a thriving, active community where
seniors live for the fun of it!
The owners, Ken, Phil and David Dixner, have been in the business of
building property management and caring for people over 45 years.
Together, with their firm commitment to seniors and their families,
Woodhaven has worked very hard to provide our residents with an elegant,
safe and dignified residence to live in since we opened in 1989. Since
the inception, affordable, long-term housing has always been a focus of
the Dixner family thus very seldom will you find a comparable selection
of services and amenities housed under state of the art than at
Several types of living arrangements can be enjoyed at
Woodhaven ranging from two bedroom Clubhomes with attached garages and
the ever so popular quaint one and two bedroom full size apartments set
in a relaxing congregate atmosphere. Each residence enjoys a
single-story design and all are monitored by security 24 hours a day.
There are a wide variety of services and activities available to our
residents; most of these are included in the monthly rent.
In 2014, The Woodlands addition provided a new chapter in the history of
our community. A newly constructed 16,000 sq. ft. Residents Clubhouse
and attached indoor Aquatic Center serves as the center of activity for
the entire campus hosting events large and small as well as offering a
place for members to gather and make memories with family and friends.
Other social amenities include pub and semi-formal dining, outdoor
putting green and wellness center. The Resident Clubhouse key to success
is found within the friendliness of the residents supported by the
exceptional service delivered by a very dedicated staff. Woodhaven’s
motto is that we are a “CAN DO” community which comes easy when you
consider the type of clientele we are serving.
It is clear to see by strolling over the
40-acre landscaped campus, Woodhaven Senior Community delivers a
multitude of services and affordable living options to your doorstep.
With well over 250 active residents, please consider visiting us soon to
see first hand the Woodhaven Difference!
