MSHCC Unveils New Family Room
DuBois, Administrator of Market Square Health Care
Center recently unveiled the redesigned family room on
the Tuttle (skilled) Unit at the facility.
family room on the Tuttle Unit was small and dark, so,
the Management Team at Market Square, working from a
recommendation from the resident council decided to make
some changes. The Council stated that they needed
more room for gathering and relaxing, so the Maintenance
staff at Market Square went to work.
The old space for family room became the
nurses station and reception area, while the old nurses
station was turned into the new family room. The
new space is much larger, brighter and more visible to
residents. The family room features seating for
residents to visit with their families or each other, as
well as a television, computer station, and a game
DuBois explains, "The new room is great
for encouraging the spontaneous game of checkers between
residents just walking by and is used far more than the
previous room. It's very sunny and bright, the
residents love it."
The redesigned family room is
just an addition to the multitude of features that make
Market Square Health Care Center a family friendly place
to call home.
