Spring has sprung and the entire Warm Hearth campus is alive with color.  The hope and happiness of the season inspired our Life Enrichment team to form the Flowers and Friends Service Club.  The club meets on the first Thursday of the month to make small floral arrangements for residents and employees who may need a little pick-me-up.  To join the club and help spread love and cheer, call Bix at 540-443-3800.

Peter Hayes, Administrator of Showalter Center recently passed his national and state Nursing Home Administration licensure exams.  Peter is already a licensed Assisted Living Administrator and chose to take the administrator’s exam to broaden his knowledge base and better serve Warm Hearth Village.  We are proud to have Peter as a member of the Warm Hearth team!


In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, we suggest finding one meaningful action you can take as an individual to live more sustainably.  Our friends at Sustainable Blacksburg have an excellent resource on their Facebook page offering examples of small yet meaningful actions that will better our community and our planet.
Warm Hearth at Home is pleased to offer specialized lymphedema therapy to our clients. Lymphedema is a condition where patients experience fluid retention and swelling in their extremities, most commonly in the lower legs.

Our employees have been specially trained to provide healing therapies that promote the circulation of fluid through the lymph system.  For more information on the healing benefits of the lymphedema therapy program offered by Warm Hearth at Home, call 540-443-3428.

Mike Spears, a Warm Hearth resident and regular donor to the Warm Hearth Foundation is leading a popular new trend in philanthropy.  He and other like-minded supporters of nonprofit organizations are using their stimulus checks to help others.  Mike decided to give his stimulus check to the foundation to help his fellow residents saying this was a great use of the funds for him personally. “It just showed up in our bank account,” he said, “and I thought why not give these extra funds to the Foundation to help its various programs and those in need at Warm Hearth Village?” 
While the payments provide much-needed relief for many, there are still many others who are fortunate not to have to rely on the most recent round of stimulus dollars. If you are in a position like Mike and do not need the additional financial assistance the stimulus payments provide, consider using the funds to make a tax-deductible donation to the Warm Hearth Foundation. Donating all or part of your stimulus check offers a unique opportunity to put the dollars to use to help others and make a positive impact on the lives of those who call Warm Hearth Village home. To learn more about how you can use your stimulus check to help seniors in need at Warm Hearth Village or to make your gift today, visit www.retire.org/foundation.
Isolation has been a real challenge for Americans during the pandemic, especially for those who need physical or emotional support related to an illness or mental health issue.  Warm Hearth Village is pleased to resume our caregiver support group for residents, family and the members of the community who face challenges associated with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia.  Virtual Zoom sessions will be held on the first and third Friday of each month from 3 to 4 pm.
For more information, contact Nicole Long at 540-443-3450 or nlong@warmhearth.org.  For additional support programs and resources, reach out to the Alzheimer’s Association at 1-800-272-3900 or www.alz.org.
