A Primrose Welcome Wagon Committee member prepares to welcome a new resident
In December, Primrose of Lancaster put together a group called “The Welcome Wagon Committee” which consists of five resident ambassadors in our community.
The purpose of the Welcome Wagon Committee is to make all of the new residents that move into our community feel welcome. The committee puts together a small basket of items that they think each new resident will need or enjoy and then they get together to take the basket to them. Each ambassador introduces themselves and tells them everything there is to know about our beautiful community.
The Welcome Wagon Committee spends a next week introducing new residents to other residents and staff. They also invite them to sit at their table during meals, and to a favorite activity of theirs. They also lend their support when new residents are sad or scared about their move. It makes a person feel really welcome to a strange place to have someone show you they really care, especially when and if your family does not live nearby.
We hold to a couple of our core values. Passion, relentless improvement and embracing change. We thrive every day to up hold these values and it shows.
