    Here some information about virtual visits for Thanksgiving for families of Cedar Crest Health Center, Memory Care, and Assisted Living:
    We are reaching out because some of the Cedar Crest staff have volunteered their time to assist residents with virtual visits for Thanksgiving.
    We are asking that visits be limited to 20 minutes so that everyone gets a chance to utilize the virtual visits. If you have multiple family members that want to visit, please use Zoom so that a group chat may be utilized. We also have visits available via Google Duo, FaceTime, and Skype. Visits will be available beginning at 8am, and the last visit will be at 3:20pm.
    Please contact Emily Hammer at 608-373-6319 by Monday 11/23 to schedule your Thanksgiving visit.
    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these challenging times. We continue to look forward to the day we can see all of you.

    The Christmas holiday is quickly approaching and the life enrichment team at Cedar Crest are making plans to insure your loved one has a festive holiday season.
    We know this Christmas season will be different for all of us, and especially different for our residents, living here at Cedar Crest. If, you would like us to help your loved one decorate a small Christmas tree for their room. You may drop off a 2 foot Christmas tree with lights and ornaments in a tote, with a lid labeled Christmas tree and resident’s name and room number. Trees may be dropped off at the Main Lobby, Monday thru Friday 8:00-4:30.
    In addition, the life enrichment team (Santa’s Elves) will spread Christmas cheer over many days this year until each area has celebrated Christmas. Santa’s Elves will serve special treats provided by our AWESOME dining team and will pass out gifts.
    We are asking families/friends to provide a $5.00 - $10.00 gift for Santa’s Elves to deliver to your loved one. We ask that you please deliver or send the wrapped gift (by December 4th), labeled with your loved one’s name on it. Gifts may be dropped off Monday thru Friday 8-4:30.
    If you have any questions about this Christmas Season please feel free to contact: Tammy Fatla, Life Enrichment Manager at (608) 373-6320.

    This year, for resident safety, Cedar Crest will not host the annual Veterans’ Day (November 11, 2020) banquet and program. Instead, with the help of many Cedar Crest staff and residents, we are celebrating and honoring our veterans in alternative ways during the entire month of November:
    ➢ Military Memorabilia Display next to the Garden Café in the Frank Douglas
    (WWII 4th Infantry Veteran) Memorial Show Case
    ➢ Veteran Photo Wall Display outside Cedar Crest Post Office, enhanced with additional submitted photos this year. No, it is not the Post Office’s “Most Wanted Wall”; it is the Cedar Crest’s “ Most Deserving of Our Grateful Thanks Wall.”
    ➢ Ten-dollar Garden Café Card to each Veteran, so he may enjoy a safe, socially distanced meal with a friend in lieu of the usual formal dining room dinner
    ➢ Patriotic cupcake on Veterans’ Day for those eating in the Dining Room
    ➢ U.S. flag on each Independent Living Apartment Veteran’s door
    ➢ Veterans’ newsletter honoring past and present veterans.
