Dearest Friends of Redstone:
Since our humble beginnings in 1980, Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare has maintained its relevance by responding to the needs of our greater community through the products, services and goodwill we provide. As you look back at the expansion of our Greensburg campus in the late 1990’s or the new developments of the Murrysville and North Huntingdon facilities at the turn of the century, we have endured by listening and following through with our Mission promises of providing living alternatives and high quality services that help the changing needs of the community.
Our annual capital reinvestments each year to operations, be it large scale equipment or furnishings in our common building areas at almost 1 million dollars, assures safety and quality matters but also addresses market appeal and lifestyle desires to our current and future clients. This year for example, we launched our first resident socialization directive by introducing our Highlanders club concept at our Murrysville campus. The Highlanders club is a place where residents and guests can gather to enjoy a variety of beverages and food while also participating in different theme events around local sporting activities, holiday celebrations, or just a good conversation with a friend or neighbor.
On a much broader scale, after hearing the pleas of our patrons requesting the trusted Redstone services beyond our walls, we launched an affiliated company: Senior Independence of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Senior Independence product lines include Home Care, Home Health, and Hospice. We look forward to fulfilling your request of these new services.
To enhance nursing services going forward, Redstone is actively engaged in our Promises Kept campaign to integrate the nationally recognized Pioneer Network program as part of the daily lifestyle experience for residents. The retrofitting of the nursing center at a projected cost of five million dollars ($5,000,000.00) would include the introduction of four very distinctive neighborhoods which include common areas and a kitchen, where residents of the neighborhood choose their daily meal menus along with activities. Staff is designated to a neighborhood for care continuity and assist with meal preparation and a variety of activities of daily living. Other areas of enhancement as part of the campaign include: a larger café, gift shop, beauty and barber shop, central lobby area, new front entrance and additional parking.
Our commitment to maintain our status as the premier provider of aging services is unwavering and we are most grateful for your support and continued blessings as you join us in realizing new and promising opportunities to all we serve.
