Suellen Carlson (right), Director of Community Life and Volunteer Program, retired on March 24. Amanda Christy, from our foster care program at G.A., is now the new director. Here they were getting ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with all the residents!

New Director of Community Life and Volunteer Program The Community Life Department has been very busy with lots of exciting changes. Amanda Christy is now the director, replacing Suellen Carlson, who retired in March. She and her team have been working on obtaining new entertainment for residents and employees to participate in. Resident favorites include the piano lounge,

resident luncheons, and a variety of musicians and singers. The whole team is working to better meet the needs of the residents to create a model of activities around resident choices and preferences. Their calendar will see some new additions of varied entertainment including artists, students, animals, and interactive events.

A Note from Gwen Spring has sprung! Flowers are beginning to bloom and there are plenty of robins flying about. I’m so glad that spring is here and I’m also glad for your continued support in helping everyone we serve here at Lutheran! It is because of you that we are still here after 131 years! This newsletter issue is our annual report and it includes our 2016 financial data, the number of lives touched, and program updates. Everything accomplished here at Lutheran is only because of you and your generosity. Please take time to see the list of our donors for 2016, including the members of the 2016 Touching Lives Club, the Juliet Anderson Rosch Society, and all the thoughtful memorial gifts. Your generosity provided $12,659 at year-end. Thank you

Marketing Update In December, the Leadership Team announced the hiring of Edwin Rodriguez Jr. as the new Director of Public Relations and Marketing upon the retirement of long-time Lutheran employee, Patty Eckwahl. He is responsible for the marketing and communications for all five of Lutheran’s divisions. Edwin grew up right down the street from our campus in Falconer where he graduated from high school in 2003. After high school, he attended and graduated from Jamestown Community College and SUNY Fredonia with a focus on communications, public relations, and marketing. Edwin is also very active as a community volunteer serving on two boards of directors for other area nonprofits in his free time. We’re proud to welcome Edwin to the Lutheran family!

so very much! That generosity is continuing with the spring appeal as well! August 21 is the date for our Fourteenth Annual Lutheran Charity Golf Tournament. Details are included in this newsletter. Thank you to all our dedicated sponsors, as they have raised over $400,000 since we started the golf tournament in 2004! It was over $41,000 just last year! If you’d like to receive your newsletter via e-mail, please send an email to me at I am more than happy to continue to mail you a copy, but if you want to receive it via e-mail, just let me know. I am grateful to you for remembering us with your time, prayers, and financial contributions. Thank you so much for being a part of our family!

Touching Lives Club

The annual Touching Lives Club donor recognition luncheon is set for Tuesday, May 16, in Christ Chapel. Invitations to our TLC donors are in the mail. The TLC was started in 2007 and created the Mission Circle, Vision Circle and Leadership Circle to recognize the annual giving of our donors, as well as their consecutive giving. It also created the Cornerstone Council, donors who have given $10,000 or more since 1996 when the Foundation was first established. At the lunch on May 16, we will welcome six new members to the Cornerstone Circle: EFPR Group, Wade E. Elliott, William and Kathleen Evans, and Thomas and Carol Maier. Let’s give them all a warm welcome!

Members of Lutheran’s Leadership Team (from left: Kathy Lynch, Jason Beckwith, Rick Shick, Pam Nordin, Kevin Saff and Edwin Rodriguez) acted as servers at this year’s Brand Integrity Hot Dog Roast in March.

G.A. Family Services Update Census remains strong in the residential program of G.A. Family Services. There are also nearly 40 students in our Learning Center from 10 different school districts in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties. The school continues to partner with outside programs such as the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at JCC, where students spend time in the classroom working collaboratively with the classroom teacher. Our focus at the Learning Center continues to recognize positive behaviors we see from our students. Students having the most difficulty are paired with mentors. The mentors check in with the student in the morning and afternoon then work with the students to develop individualized goals. We have an ‘Honor Society’ that students can become a part of if they meet the academic and behavioral standards. We continue to have huge success with the development of our therapeutic riding program under the supervision of our Clinical Director, Misty Pennington. The program continues to grow and the youth truly enjoy riding and taking care of the horses.

Several youth have been able to obtain employment in the community working after school jobs; i.e. Wegmans, Johnny’s Lunch, and in our nursing home’s dietary department. They are developing a strong work ethic, good work experience and developing positive peer relationships. Their work experience will build the foundation for continued success upon their discharge from the program. The Accountability and Responsibility Program has had the biggest and most successful year with over 30 youth participating in many service projects, campus tours, and vocational learning. The A&R Program is also working on a community beautification project. They are creating a mural in Jamestown’s historic Riverwalk area. The theme will be the natural beauty of Chautauqua County. The City of Jamestown and other major stakeholders from Chautauqua County have all agreed to support the mural, which will begin this spring and summer.

2016 Annual Report Lutheran had another successful year, both financially and in caring for those in our community. It’s because of the consistent and generous support from you and all our donors that Lutheran is well positioned to meet its future challenges. What you can’t see in the figures to the right is that in 2016, we added $800,000 to the funded depreciation reserve account which provides for the long-term repair, upkeep and capital improvement needs of the nursing home. Also during 2016, Lutheran completed over $1.6 million in capital improvements bringing the 4 year total of capital improvements made to $8 million. Over the last 4 years Lutheran has also paid down $7.2 million in debt including all of the nursing home and school debts. The number of lives touched has increased as well over four years; going from 2,755 in 2013 to 3,447; an increase of over 25%. On behalf of our entire Board of Directors and the thousands we serve every year, thank you so very much for your commitment to Lutheran.

The Lutheran Bus (above) gets a new look!

Hultquist Place Update 2016 was a productive year for Hultquist Place, our assisted living program. A new position was created, personal care aides, to assist on the night shift and fill in part-time slots. The EQUAL grant from NYS for 2016-2017 was used for a new bus. The bus was delivered just before Christmas. The remainder of the funds were used to enhance the activities offered within Hultquist Place, specifically entertainment offerings. The Resident Council approved a motion to use 2017 funds towards the purchase and installation of a lock system for all resident room doors. Cathy Peterson, home health aide, was named the LeadingAge Employee of Distinction for the Western Region. A formal celebration and ceremony will be held in June to commemorate this award. We are exploring the licensure and regulations that encompass the creation of a memory care unit at the ALP level of care, so we can meet the needs of that particular segment of the population in the traditional ALP setting. This exploration should tell us if it is feasible to create such a unit. A focus in 2017 for Hultquist Place is to have its own training program for Home Health Aides, so we can meet the care needs of the people we serve now and in the future. The assisted living program will not be moved into Medicaid managed care until at least October of 2017. September 11, 2016, marked our ten-year anniversary. Great food and good fun were enjoyed by all in celebration of the event. Hultquist Place was also awarded for the third year in a row the Post Journal’s ‘Best Assisted Living’ in Chautauqua County.

LHRC Update The Lutheran Home continues to focus on Quality Assurance Performance Improvement, and we are comparing positively with most national benchmarks. We are a 5-star facility for our quality measures; and for the first time, Lutheran ranked in the first quintile for the Nursing Home Quality Initiative. Renovation work is now complete on all of our dining rooms. The new, state-of-the-art, aesthetically pleasing “country kitchens” provide an enhanced dining experience for the residents. Our Community Life program continues to grow and offer new, innovative options for our residents to participate in. We offer activities seven days per week on both the day and evening shifts. CMS (Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services) has revised nursing home regulations (last revision was 1991) and launched them in September 2016 as The Final Rule for Nursing Homes. This will significantly change how we operate at the nursing home. The expectation is a three phase implementation with Phase I having been implemented in November 2016, Phase II has to be implemented by November 28, 2017; and Phase III by November 28, 2018.

Donors Give Through Thrivent Choice®

K9 Officer Mitchell gives presentation at G.A. Learning Center Career Day in March.

Thank you to the eligible Thrivent members who chose Lutheran to receive Thrivent Choice® Dollars in 2016. There are thousands of participating organizations that members can choose from, so thank you very much for choosing Lutheran. These funds go a long way in providing services to the thousands of adults and youth we serve every year. Since 2010, Thrivent Financial has offered the Thrivent Choice® program; and since that time, Lutheran has received nearly $16,000!

Kevin is all smiles as he reviews his busy schedule of activities for the week at Grace Community Services.


Valentine’s Day Cookies

Nancy Drewniak and other registrants from Lutheran’s Warner Place Adult Day Health Care Program baked and wrapped over 300 cookies to deliver to residents of the Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center on Valentine’s Day. The cookies were distributed with the assistance of Lutheran staff at the direction of Warner Place Activities Coordinator, Mike Nordin. Warner Place, our medicalmodel adult day health care program, is open to those individuals who need nursing home care during the day but have a support system that allows them to remain at home in the evenings.

A Rehab Visit

“My grandmother came here for rehab in the beginning of March, and was here for about three weeks. She had nothing but great things to say about everyone. She said the food was great; other than the fact that they get three meals a day plus snacks offered three times a day (apparently that’s too much!); and everyone she encountered treated her well. If ever she needed fulltime care, there is no doubt that I would make sure she got to come back here. Her questions/issues were always answered quickly, and I never had to worry about how she was.” ~ Stephanie Reichardt

More G.A. News G.A. Family Services was successful with the 2017 Targeted Regional Permanency Grant offered by the Office of Family Children Services. Through this grant, post-adoption services will be provided to five counties (Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Niagara, and Wyoming). The grant awards will be approximately $300,000 and will replace our current Post Adoption Program. We will also be adding kinship services (working with relatives of youth that are providing foster care services). Our Post-Adoption Services provide support and assistance to adoption families to help keep them together. Two youth were adopted out of our foster care program just before Christmas as a direct result of these services. An Adoption Month Celebration event was held in November, where families received certificates of appreciation to highlight their strengths as adoptive families. G.A. Family Services’ Foster Care Program provides regular and therapeutic foster care services. Twelve children were adopted by foster parents from our program in the final quarter of 2016. The Foster Care Program was chosen to receive a beautiful brand new van from the Ford Friendship Express Program. The brand new 8-seater van will allow us to provide safe and reliable transportation for our foster children as we transport them back and forth for their visits with their families and to appointments and other daily activities. February 27 was a great day for Andrew SmithCalanni and his adoptive moms, Francine and Camilla, because he was officially adopted!

Edgewood Communities Update Edgewood Communities’ capital improvements for 2016 included a new roof for Carlson Tower and new siding and window replacement on some duplexes. Design work continues on the development of the new community and wellness building. Senior Life Matters continues to be a very popular program. It is a community-based service that provides case management to seniors and their families to ensure that seniors are living in the most appropriate environment based on their needs, This program also assists people with insurance concerns as they age into Medicare and need to make decisions about healthcare coverage. The Senior Life Matters staff provided insurance counseling to 683 clients in the fourth quarter of 2016 alone. In addition, Senior Life Matters hosted several informational Medicare seminars throughout 2016, which were attended by over 750 community members.

Join us for the 14th Annual Charity Golf Tournament Mark your calendars early! The 14th Annual Lutheran Charity Golf Tournament is slated for Monday, August 21, at the Moon Brook Country Club in Jamestown. As a valued supporter of Lutheran, you can enjoy a day of golf and help the people we serve for an entry fee of $250. This fee covers green fees, a golf cart, lunch, refreshments on the course, a nice gift, and a wonderful hors d’oeuvre buffet to enjoy. Our generous sponsors and supporters have raised over $400,000 since the first year in 2004! The tournament is a four-man, two best-ball format, and begins at noon with a shot gun start. We will be on hand early at 10:30 a.m. if you want to get in a bit of practice. We have single spots to fill, so if you’re interested, please give Gwen a call at 716-665-8137.
