Help sought in re-establishing Family Council at The Villages of Orleans
On July 10th at 6 p.m. in the Large Conference room at The Villages of Orleans Nursing Home there will be a Family Council meeting. I am strongly encouraging all family or representatives of a resident to attend.
Under regulation 10NYCRR 415.5, a resident’s family has the right to meet in the facility with the families of other residents. The Villages of Orleans may in no way prohibit the formation of a Family Council. As the Family Council, we shall be allowed to meet in a common meeting room within the facility, in private, without facility staff at least once per month upon a mutually agreed time.
It has been quite a period of time since the families have gathered and it is time we re-establish the council. Join me on Tuesday, July 10th, at 6 p.m. in the Large Conference room. Looking forward to seeing and hearing from you all.
