- A formal calendar for April was not created due to COVID-19. During this time of social distancing we are trying many new and creative ways to stay connected. New ideas are being shared among senior living communities as we all adjust to planning for the unknown. Please follow us on Facebook to see the many unique ideas that we are trying.
*Activities will vary for Birch Hall and Hawthorn Hall, the Alzheimer's and dementia care programs, and will consist of additional one-on-one programs. Activities in Hawthorn Hall are seven days a week and into the evening hours most days.
