Thanks to the generosity of donors to the Warm Hearth Foundation’s Employee Growth & Development fund, eight Warm Hearth employees across the Village received a total of $10,500 in scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $1,500 this spring. Scholarship funds will help some recipients pay for job-related certifications to become Certified Nursing Assistants and Registered Medical Assistants. Others are undergraduate students at local colleges and universities and will use their scholarships toward their tuition and textbooks. We are so proud of our hard-working employees who continually strive to learn and grow to better serve Warm Hearth residents. Please join us in congratulating Larissa Gilbert, Amy Greer, Alaina Lafon, Stephanie Mendoza, Tiffany Peteritis, Tiffany Sherman, Abbey Stone, and Izabelle Thompson!

It's summertime and that means we're all looking to escape the heat. Keep your cool with these helpful tips.

  1.  Hydrate: It's a good idea to consume between six and eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Have trouble remembering? Check out smartphone apps that track daily water intake and remind you when you're not drinking enough. 
  2.  Eat light: Load up on salads with veggies and fruits, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, oranges, and watermelon. 
  3. Swim for fitness: People can exercise longer in water than on land without increased effort or experiencing joint or muscle pain while burning just as many calories. Come try water volleyball or one of our many pool classes at the Village Center.
  4.  Dress smart: Don't reach for your collection of cotton tee shirts—they trap in moisture. Instead look for clothes labeled ‘moisture-wicking' or 'climate control', which let air in and sweat out, and allow you to spend more time comfortably outdoors.
  5.  Replenish skin: Restore moisture to your skin by applying a rich moisturizer after you shower and before bedtime. Look for products that contain soothing ingredients like aloe vera, cocoa butter or shea butter.


Fly off to the tropical oasis of Parrot-dise, a place where the drinks are always full and the music never stops playing. Put your fins up and groove to the jams of the ToneZ Band, bid on one-of-a-kind items and experiences in our silent auction and watch local restaurants compete for the title of Cheeseburger Throwdown Champ, all to benefit seniors in need of housing and health care at Warm Hearth Village.
