Year End Reflections & New Beginnings

As I reflect on the past year, I am humbled and blessed by the way the Tel Hai family has become a part of my life. The Tel Hai family includes residents, clients, team members, volunteers, family members, friends, donors and supporters of Tel Hai. THANK YOU to each person who has partnered with us to provide a vibrant, caring community.

God has continued to bless the mission of Tel Hai. During 2017, we served more than 1,200 older adults throughout residential living, personal care, health care and . We served more than 100 children in The Children’s Learning Garden, Tel Hai’s Child Day Care Center. Although we have been growing, we are seeking to become one community with multiple neighborhoods.

This fall, we began a new round of strategic planning workshops with the theme 20/20: Gaining Perspective. We are thinking about the future direction of Tel Hai with a particular focus on the next 18 months. Our new strategic priorities include strengthening our financial performance, re-envisioning health services, and growing team member culture. We are working to refine and assign action steps for each priority.

We are excited to conclude the construction of the last wing of StoneCroft Apartments— called Brownstone— which includes 45 apartments. Our newest residents have already arrived and will be moving in through January 2018. Incorporated into the design of Brownstone are five distinct common spaces, which are dedicated to additional amenity, hobby and resident functions. They include a multipurpose conference room, model train room, 21-seat theater room, sewing room and conservatory.

Starting January 2, we anticipate welcoming 10 new households to Maple Knoll Townhomes, located in the Cherry Drive area among Maple Knoll Cottages. Move-in’s will continue throughout the month, with the last settlement on January 31.

As we look toward the year ahead, I’m excited about the possibilities and opportunities to enhance the lives of all we serve.

I wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a great year in 2018!
