Community Announcement - Video Recording

On Wednesday, August 17, Stonehill will be recording a community announcement to staff in the Coffee Shop at 9:30am. Residents in the Coffee Shop or main hallway between 9:30 and 10:00am may appear in the recorded video. If you would prefer your loved one not be seen in the video, please encourage them to avoid the area or contact us to help ensure they are directed elsewhere at that time. Thank you! Additional details regarding the announcement will be shared later next week.
