Live Well Communication, what does it mean?
For those of you who attended Town Meeting on Monday, you heard me speak about a letters from Brewster Place in Topeka regarding their Live Well at Home Program. It’s my understanding that this communication went out to many people in the Manhattan community, including residents of Meadowlark Hills.
Call the nurse!
One of the features available to independent living residents at Meadowlark Hills is access to a pull-cord system that pages an on-duty nurse in the skilled nursing area. When the pull cord is activated, the nurse will respond to the apartment, cottage or duplex to assess the resident’s urgent need.
Why the Watermelon?
Meadowlark Hills loves art. Not to say that each individual resident loves art, but the organization as a whole appreciates many types of art displayed throughout our campus. There are three unique pieces of art located outside the Community Room. If you visit that area, you will find portraits of people who have played a significant role in the history of Meadowlark Hills. One is of the Sloan family, one is of our former CEO Steve Shields and the third depicts Jim Morrison with a watermelon.
Wait…what? A watermelon?
Love & Lo Mein
I love Valentine’s Day. Mostly because I love to send Valentine’s to my family and friends – this holiday makes for a great excuse to show the ones you love that you are thinking about them.

Today is the last day of 2015 and tomorrow the New Year begins. You might be considering a resolution or two for the New Year (lose weight, save money, quit smoking). Or, like me, you may instead be focusing on what great things happened in the past twelve months and what you are looking forward to in the year 2016.
There is a dull buzz starting at Meadowlark Hills regarding personal golf cart usage. Can residents purchase and utilize a golf cart on our campus? The short answer is yes!
Personal golf cart usage is okay on the Meadowlark Hills campus! Purchasing a golf cart for use on campus is something that some of you may have considered to create an easier way to get to different areas. Historically, there have not been many residents that choose to purchase and utilize a golf cart for this purpose, but it is an option that is available to residents.
