The Mill View retirement community for the over 55s allows residents to live independently in their own modern apartments with on-site care.

Think lifestyle, independence and confidence – residents can socialize with others whenever they want, or just enjoy their own company, using facilities such as indoor and outdoor common areas.

They can also cook their own meals in the kitchen of their apartment if they wish, or eat in the restaurant.

And they and their families can rest assured that in the event of a minor emergency or incident, caregivers are there to help. Care and support are tailored to their individual needs.

The comfortable environment promotes social interaction and reduces the risk of isolation. If someone was alone before, he has the opportunity to socialize here.

In addition to residents going to the restaurant for lunch together, their families can also visit often,

Residents may find it liberating to sell their family home, move on, and realize that the worries they had are lifted from them.

Support and guidance is on hand to ensure they are happy living at Mill View. If someone feels intimidated about moving from a family home to a new location, there is an additional care team leader on hand to support them Monday through Friday.

Meryl Pithers, whose parents moved to Mill View, was delighted that their family had discovered the development of independent living.

She had been worried about the care needs of the parents here, but now has peace of mind that they are living there happily with on-site care, and she enjoys visiting them there.

“Mill View was a wonderful find, with extra care that involves onsite carers, well appointed accommodation with wide hallways, accessible doorways and a very secure entry system.

“And my parents love having the caregivers on site, the ability to sit on their little patio/balcony, and the ability to socialize with other people who live here.

“I can’t tell you the difference it has made for us as a family. It’s a nice, comfortable place to live and a lovely place to go and visit them.”

Jennifer Sigley, Sloan Hamil, Katherine Lott Howerin and Tina Wolfe are plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed in federal court against operators of a Spanish Fort retirement community who claim the company’s COVID-19 vaccination policy violated religious protections.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants in the case, ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, Inc. and Presbyterian Retirement Corporation, Inc., the operators of Spanish Fort’s Westminister Village, violated religious freedoms.

Apparently, Howerin and Wolfe said the society granted religious exemptions. However, they said “about a month later” the operators backtracked and terminated their employment.

“My exemption was approved in mid-September,” Howerin, an eight-year Westminster Village employee, told Mobile TV’s WKRG. “And then on October 7, my admin gave me a letter and basically rescinded the exception.”

Wolfe, who previously worked as an RN supervisor for Westminster Village for 12 years, had a similar reaction.

“I was shocked because I didn’t think they could do that,” she told WKRG. “How can they tell us they can’t accept our exemption when they already have.”

Brian Dasinger, a Fairhope-based attorney who is handling a similar lawsuit for former employees of the Mobile-based shipbuilder Austal, is the plaintiff’s attorney.

Alabama Retiree Community’s COVID Vaccine Mandate Violated Employees’ Religious Rights https://onsdorp.net/alabama-retiree-communitys-covid-vaccine-mandate-violated-employees-religious-rights/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 21:04:41 +0000 https://onsdorp.net/alabama-retiree-communitys-covid-vaccine-mandate-violated-employees-religious-rights/ SPANISH FORT, Ala.

SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) – Former employees of a retirement community have filed a lawsuit claiming their religious freedoms have been violated. Former Westminster Village employees say the company initially accepted their religious exemptions for the COVID-19 vaccine, but about a month later the decision changed and they were fired.

Katherine Howerin and Tina Wolfe said the COVID-19 vaccine went against their religious beliefs, so when their workplace announced the requirement, they asked for a religious exemption.

Howerin worked in Westminster Village for eight years. When she was fired, she was director of nursing. She explained that her position meant she didn’t have as close contact with residents as other employees.

“My exemption was approved in mid-September,” Howerin said. “And then on October 7, my admin gave me a letter and basically rescinded the exception.”

Wolfe worked for Westminster Village for 12 years. At the time she was fired, she said she was the RN supervisor. Wolfe said: “I was shocked because I didn’t think they could do that. How can they tell us that they cannot accept our exemption when they have already done so.

The couple told WKRG News 5 that their last day at Westminster was in October. Almost a year later, they are part of a larger group suing the company for damages with the same lawyer handling a similar lawsuit for former Austal employees, Brian Dasinger .

“We think they should be penalized for what they did,” Dasinger said. “For the particular cruelty of granting the exemptions and then refusing them a month later.”

Dasinger says Westminster gave three reasons for refusing the exemptions.

“[An] alarming increase in COVID-19 cases across the United States, an alarming increase among staff and residents, and new information regarding the virus and vaccines,” Dasinger explained.

But he said he refuted all three claims. And about a week ago, Howerin and Wolfe received a letter saying they could reapply to the company.

“I didn’t sleep the night after we received this letter because it brought back all the emotions of the four or five months we were dealing with all of this. I mean, it was just a slap. Oh okay we let you go a year ago but you can come back now we changed our minds,” Howerin said.

The women said they knew they had a long way to go, but were hopeful about the outcome of their case.

“If we don’t stand up for what we believe in, who else will?” Wolfe said.

“I feel like I have to stand up for what I believe in if no one else is going to,” Katherine said.

WKRG News 5 spoke to a spokesperson for Westminster Village’s parent company, Acts Retirement-Life Communities, and received the following statement:

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Westminster Village has sought to create the safest living and working environment for our residents and staff. As part of our processes, we have implemented a vaccination mandate for all employees and considered the implications of the variations on the health and safety of our communities. As circumstances continue to evolve and the availability of treatments has increased, we have continued to evaluate our protocols and modified them as needed. Currently, the employee vaccination mandate remains in place, with accommodations for those with approved religious and medical declinations. »

James City County supervisors approve revised plan for new retirement community – Daily Press https://onsdorp.net/james-city-county-supervisors-approve-revised-plan-for-new-retirement-community-daily-press/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 18:02:13 +0000 https://onsdorp.net/james-city-county-supervisors-approve-revised-plan-for-new-retirement-community-daily-press/ JAMES CITY — The James City County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved an amended plan for a retirement community near Ford’s Colony that will allow the long-debated project to move forward.

JAMES CITY — The James City County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved an amended plan for a retirement community near Ford’s Colony that will allow the long-debated project to move forward.

The new plan reduces the number of units offered for the community, which will be known as Ford’s Village, and offers new traffic improvements.

“The way things are, what’s on the books right now can happen,” supervisor Michael Hipple said. “The contestants came back and said we wanted to build a better community.”

Retirement Unlimited and Norfolk’s Frye Properties, LLC, updated the master plan for the entire project after previously asking council to wait until September 13 for the final vote.

Ford’s Village will be an age-limited continuing care community for ages 55 and older located in the Ford’s Colony area.

In July, the project estimated a total of 516 units, which has been reduced to 470 units in total: 200 in the large complex known as The Morgan, as well as 270 single and multi-family units.

Vernon Geddy, a representative for Frye, said the property will include several different housing options, but each will include features such as elevators and grab bar mounts for a safer experience. Homes ranged from an 800 to 1,000 square foot bungalow to a 2,600 to 2,900 square foot townhouse. It is not certain whether the properties are for sale, for rent or both.

The community will also offer many amenities: fine dining, fitness and wellness center, physiotherapy, college and enrichment classes, housekeeping, access to nurses and hospices, pickleball courts and more.

The courses would be delivered under the program of Retirement Unlimited, RUI University. Classes include subjects such as history, music, wine, cooking and technology.

The plan for a retirement community began in 2007 and was approved by the board in 2008. Since then no projects have been underway and the land is still open.

The 14-year-old master plan authorized 741 units, but the housing estate was never built.

The developer’s updated master plan, which sets the stage for the project to move forward, passed by a 3-2 vote. Supervisors Hipple, Ruth Larson and Sue Sadler voted to approve the plan, with Jim Icenhour and board chairman John McGlennon voting against.

While traffic will increase, Hipple, Larson and Sadler agreed it was worth the extra congestion.

“We hear from citizens and appreciate everyone’s contribution,” Sadler said.

Residents like David Hertzler, who expressed concern about the width of News Road, seemed to disagree.

“The design of the subdivision is magnificent; I have no problem with that. Traffic is already overwhelming on News Road,” Hertzler said. “…They didn’t approach traffic the way they should approach it.”

In 2008, many residents objected to the complex because they were concerned about increased traffic on News Road.

Geddy said the new master plan generates less traffic than the 2008 plan. He also said some traffic improvements were proposed, including turns on Firestone Drive and at Powhatan Secondary and traffic lights at the entrance of the project, if justified.

Icenhour and McGlennon were still unsure of the development.

“Mr. McGlennon and I were two board members in 2008 who voted against this original project,” Icenhour said.

The increase in traffic is too great for the neighborhood, according to Icenhour, and is not in line with the housing density of the whole project.

Paul Holt, director of community development and planning for James City County, insisted at Tuesday’s meeting that traffic will be good.

“News Road looks like a very different road than other two-lane roads in the county. It’s very windy and hilly,” Holt said. “This segment of News Road … together with the proposal and any other existing and future anticipated traffic does not trigger the need for VDOT to add additional lanes.”

‘The proposal as it stands before you today, therefore, passes council’s policy for adequate public facilities for roads,’ he continued.

McGlennon said he was still concerned about traffic as well as the need for additional accommodation that might be needed.

“I think we’ve heard some pretty serious traffic concerns from residents. We do not have answers to our need for additional accommodations for those who are likely to be needed [nurses and in-house staff] to prevent this development from working,” McGlennon said. “At the end of the day, I think we can still do better.”

The development is expected to have a positive fiscal impact on James City County of approximately $1.88 million per year.

In other cases on Tuesday, the board approved wage increases for many first responder workers. Each full-time police officer will receive a 5% salary increase. All officers hired on or after July 1 will also receive a $5,000 signing bonus, with the officer’s contingent signing a three-year contract with the county.

There will also be an increase in salaries for EMS intermediaries and paramedics.

Supervisors said they hope the increases will increase the number of first responders in James City County.

“I don’t think a lot of people in our county know…how few police and firefighters we have,” Icenhour said. “These people have covered a lot of ground and they’re doing a lot of good work for us.”

Supervisors also approved the expansion of the James City County Range on Jolly Pond Road. This is the biggest expansion of the range since its debut in 1985.

The Board of Directors will then meet on September 27 for a business meeting. The next regular meeting will take place on October 11.

The sprawling 94 acres encompassing the Broadmead retirement community in Cockeysville are covered in trees, trails and all manner of wildlife. The campus attracts monarch butterflies and has an apiary for beekeeping.

Overall, the community of Broadmead is committed to being good stewards of its property and recently received Bay-Wise certification from the Master Gardeners of Baltimore County. Run by the University of Maryland Extension, the Bay-Wise Initiative focuses on landscape practices that help keep local waterways, the Chesapeake Bay, and the environment healthy.

Bay-Wise certification is rigorous and Broadmead has adhered to it, demonstrating environmentally responsible approaches to landscape management in specific areas such as planting, fertilizing, recycling, mowing and watering, as well as runoff control and wildlife promotion, among other factors.

“This is a significant achievement that demonstrates Broadmead’s continued commitment to sustainability and a healthy environment,” said Linnette Kanitzhorticulturist and land manager at Broadmead.

Many members of the Broadmead community have worked hard to make this happen.

The Baltimore County Master Gardeners applauded Broadmead for using environmentally friendly gardening techniques, such as limiting stormwater runoff and minimizing the use of pesticides and fertilizers on its lawn. This protects the local creek water, which of course leads to the Chesapeake Bay.

Bay-Wise Certification is a homeowner education program that can be done by individuals as well as communities looking to learn how to plant and maintain sustainable landscapes.

Most residents of Maryland live within half a mile of a storm drain, creek, or river, and most of these waterways eventually empty into the Chesapeake Bay. With just a few simple landscape practices, homeowners can affect the health of local waterways, the Chesapeake Bay, and our environment.

The University of Maryland extension offers free sessions at the Baltimore Center for Maryland Agriculture in Cockeysville on Saturday mornings with sessions like Pollinator Gardens and Monarch Waystation or Beautiful, Bountiful and Beneficial Herb Gardens coming soon.

The Ag Center also hosted the Baltimore County Horse Council’s Friday Night Lights program throughout the summer, with the last in the series taking place on Friday, September 16. This month’s offering will include a dressage demonstration of “Horses Dancing to Music” presented by Nuno Santos and Hellie Goodrich.

These family-friendly, free events have been a big hit all summer long with each month’s program featuring different equine demonstrations promoting Maryland horses and riding.

Earlier programs featured skills such as Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association Mounted Marksmanship and Maryland Jousting Association Expert Skills. The Horse Dance Program will also be an autism-friendly event with Pathfinders for Autism, a Maryland-based nonprofit organization, on hand with resources and information.

Friday Night Lights runs from 7-9 p.m. Doors open one hour before departure and the Charles Village Pub food truck will be on site.

Creekside Village was a quiet retirement village in Edmond where residents spent their day. Then, two years ago, Dianne moved in and things were never the same.

Meet Mary Hammon, Ruth Linthicum and Jan Byford, all in their 80s, and their new, younger neighbor Diane Honeycutt, who brought the Circle of Friends to life.

“Well, this lady moved into the apartment here, and she came in like a gentle breeze, but then it turned into a tornado,” said Creekside resident Mary Hammon.

Honeycutt brought instant energy to the group.

“I was pretty much in my apartment, you know, and just glued to the TV,” Hammon said.

Honeycutt refused to let her new friends sit down any longer.

“I’m the type of person who says you’re going to do this, come on, what are you doing?” Why are you going here? I am authoritarian. I am their mother,” Honeycutt said.

The ladies frequently come out to eat and when they show up the party begins.

“I love hanging out with them because they have everyone in the whole restaurant looking at us,” said Creekside resident Ruth Linthicum.

“I ask them, I said when I walked in, are you ready for this rowdy bunch,” said resident Jan Byford Creekside.

When they’re not going out, there’s usually a friendly card game.

“We taught Diane to play Skip-Bo and now she beats us 90% of the time,” Hammon said.

Honeycutt always takes care of the ladies and prays for them.

“And we call her our prayer warrior because in no time she’ll be in a prayer,” Hammon said.

“I mean when she says a prayer, you know you’ve been prayed for,” Byford said.

And as much as the band needs Diane, she needs her.

“You know, friends are more precious than gold and I said, I’m covered in gold here,” Byford said.

These ladies are extremely close and truly consider each other sisters.

“It’s just heaven here, it is what it is, you couldn’t ask for a better place to live,” Byford said.

A downtown retirement community has officially opened in Beccles.

Waveney MP Peter Aldous and town mayor Barry Darch officially opened the facility, located off Gosford Road.

The duo were joined by McCarthy and Stone employees and owners of Foundry Place to perform the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Mr Aldous said: “I was delighted to be invited to officially open Foundry Place, explore the development and meet some of the owners.

“Developments such as Foundry Place offer a great solution for those looking to enjoy an independent and active lifestyle in retirement, and I enjoyed seeing it first hand.

“I think it’s important that Beccles is able to offer not only more housing options for people looking to downsize, but also the opportunity to be part of a supportive, welcoming and friendly community. “

The development comprises 55 one and two bedroom apartments, and also includes a communal lounge, landscaped gardens and a hotel-style guest suite.

An estate team is available 24 hours a day, while the development includes a security entry system and 24-hour emergency call points and an on-site bistro for those who do not wish to cook.

Mr Darch said: “I had a wonderful time at Foundry Place, meeting some of the owners and celebrating the opening of the development.

“Foundry Place has a great community spirit and it’s a joy to officially welcome it to Beccles.”

Planning permission was granted for the Care Village in 2019, on the former Ingate Ironworks site, with a groundbreaking ceremony hosted in February 2020 by the Mayor of Beccles, Andrea Carr.

David Meachem, Divisional Sales Director at McCarthy Stone, said: “We were incredibly thrilled to be joined by Peter Aldous and Barry Darch to officially open Foundry Place.

“We are committed to providing an exceptional lifestyle that offers all the comforts of home for a relaxing and independent retreat, along with a choice of social and leisure activities within walking distance.

“Foundry Place has quickly become a thriving community of retirees looking to live their retirement to the fullest and we encourage anyone interested to come see what Foundry Place has to offer.”

FEEDBACK from locals inspired the name of a UK retirement home developer for its new retirement residence development in Romsey.

McCarthy Stone, one of the UK’s leading developers and managers of retirement communities, has revealed that its new Retirement Living development in Abbotswood Common Road, Romsey has been named Glebe Court.

The exclusive developer asked locals to name the new development, giving them the opportunity to put their stamp on the Romsey community. The winning submission was by local resident, Fern Seaforth, who highlighted Glebe Court for its unique medieval history, Glebe meaning parcel of cultivated land.

The winning contributor said: “I wanted to choose a name that had a connection to the other local road names in the area, and they all have a reference to the medieval period. Romsey started out as a Saxon village and is known to be a historic market town, so it seemed only fitting to include that history in the name of the new development.
