This was certainly a year for the history books at PVM! With the opening of Rivertown Neighborhood and Community Connections of Michigan with the first chapter in Greater Midtown Detroit, as well as other innovations at all of our villages, we have demonstrated our commitment to providing an array of services to allow seniors and community members to “age in community”. With the increasing pace of change in our society, we face many challenges as well as tremendous opportunities to shape the future of aging and to make Michigan “The Best Place To Age.” Creating a future for us all involves courage, compassion and creativity. Innovation must be at the core of all we do, along with honoring our mission, beliefs and values. Many thanks to our Board members, staff, donors, volunteers, collaborators and partners in this important work. It is your dedication and service that continues to position us as a leader. Together we serve seniors and build stronger communities. What we do matters!

PVM Foundation Success Story: Through Resident Assistance funding, PVM has provided small assistance opportunities ($300 or under per resident) that have truly changed lives. This past year, a resident who wrote an essay for the It’s a Wonderful Life Gala that described a significant decade of her life was selected as one of the winners. She was awarded a complimentary ticket to attend the gala, but did not have the financial capability to purchase appropriate clothing. Thanks to the Resident Assistant Fund, the resident, with help from the Village Administrator, was able to purchase a beautiful dress. She attended the gala and experienced a night she will always remember. This is just one example that illustrates how philanthropy truly impacts residents and how the PVM Foundation strives each day to make Michigan the best place to age for seniors and their families.

The project grew where every Tuesday the craft room was filled with ladies sewing, laughing and having a wonderful time. Blankets were either made by hand or machine, all of which are beautiful. Material was donated by AARP and the Kiwanis Organization to help support this cause. Each year, Henry Ford throws a baby shower and invites residents, who are thanked by the staff for their efforts. After purchasing new furniture for Brush Park Manor, the former furniture from the common areas was donated to the residents at Rivertown Assisted Living and Second Canaan Senior Housing for their lobby and their residents.

The residents feel very proud of what they have accomplished in knowing that they are helping someone more in need than they are. They have asked their friends and family for assistance with our efforts also. Together we have been able to gather two to three large boxes of food, toiletries and personal items for them every time we collect food. We also receive thank you letters from the rescue mission thanking us for our efforts. These are displayed at the mailboxes for all of the residents to see. They are proud that their efforts have truly helped others in need, and are looking to help additional groups, such as the military and “adopt a family” in 2014. The spirit of giving brings them together and they truly enjoy giving back to our community.

A Story About Community Benefit: One of our residents moved into the community not wanting to socialize, not getting out to the activities, and not getting any fresh air. She was still upset that her family “put her in a group home.” After months of trying to find out what it would take for this new resident to feel like she was a part of this great community, we were coming up short every time. One afternoon, a staff member asked her if she could watch the front door and let the mailman back in when he came back from his truck picking up packages. She agreed, waited, and let him back in. Something this simple made a great impact. Our resident started coming down to the lobby at the same time every day to watch for the mailman. This now engaged resident began to knit in the same spot everyday. After the staff began to admire her knitting, we were able to convince her to join in the 2013 Harmony Manor Mind, Body, and Spirit contest. Her knitting won second place. The blankets, hats, scarves and mittens are all donated to the COTS shelter. Our resident, who has been knitting for generations, found her niche in the community and is now keeping our hearts and residents warm.

A Story About Community Benefit A resident with a history of depression told members of our staff that he feels much happier since moving to the Village—so much so that the the dosage of his depression medication has been reduced, and he is feeling happier than he ever has. He is involved in many events and classes and has made new friends, who watch out for each other.

A Story About Community Benefit We had a resident that moved from another state. In the move she had lost everything. The employees donated household furnishings, including a couch, recliner, dishes and pots and pans. A current resident was sleeping on a mattress on the floor because she did not have a bed frame. We found someone willing to donate a frame and now that resident is sleeping much more soundly. The kindness toward both these residents has made their live here at the Village much more pleasant.
32001 Cherry Hill Road Westland, MI 48186-7902 734.728.5222 Administrator: Ellen Byrne Board Chair: Gail Quann
The Village opened in 1990 and features 154 apartments with services, 52 Enhanced Living apartments, 20 Assisted Living units and 20 Memory Care units. Significant Accomplishments: • The Village of Westland residents, with great assistance from the Wellness staff, won the 2013 Victory Cup. Our residents are often some of the oldest participants, but that didn’t stop them from working hard and getting the cup. • Completely painted the Assisted Living and Memory Care cottages and installed new lighting. This has greatly improved the environment. The area is now safer, more inviting and definitely stands more in line with our competitors.
• Enhanced Board development with the addition of three new members who bring varied talents and expertise to help guide our future. • Replaced the kitchen floor. • Instituted a successful employee of the month program. We also greatly increased the number of entries into the Shining Star competition (25 up from six the previous year).

Madonna through The Virtual Dementia Tour. This was a hands-on class that shows what it is like to experience the sensory deprivation that comes with dementia. About 18 students participated in the experience and post discussion. • The Village of Westland residents collected food and non-perishables to be sent to service men and women through a program called “Americans thanks our Troops.” We got the contact information from a resident’s family member. • Residents made hundreds of hats for area children in need.
A Story About Community Benefit A class from Madonna University came to the Village to participate in a virtual dementia training class. There were about 18 students. The class started with a discussion of preconceived ideas of what it is like to have dementia. What a “day in the life” must look like for them. The group was then taken through an exercise, two by two, where they experience various sensory deprivations that involve some physical and sensory adaptations. When the entire group is done, there is a discussion of what the exercise felt like, what each participant learned about themselves as well as the clients they serve. We also focused on what they will take away from the day…how they will be different when working with people with dementia. It is exciting to see the transformation of the students through this process, since it is often a very moving experience for them. Madonna University has become a partner in this initiative via their intern program.

After hours of research and requests, management, service coordinator and residents were able to provide the new resident with all of her basic needs. She is now residing quite comfortably at VWM and lending support to her new neighbors.

PVM’s Purple Cow, TESSS
vi ty •
s te wa ce At a recent PVM orientation rdsh ip • S u c program, some of the staff members in attendance stated that they were unaware of the significance of the “Purple Cow.” Most indicated that they had seen the cow around, but didn’t really understand what it was all about. I’m sorry that the story of TESSS has not been thoroughly conveyed. Hopefully this short description will help.
The field of senior living, services and programs is increasingly full of choices. Some new, some older, some more traditional, some quite innovative, some conservative, some bolder, some less flexible, some highly customer focused and so on. In this crowded and cluttered field, it is extremely important for organizations to stand out, be distinctive, to demonstrate their uniqueness, how they are special, how their services are different elentless • • R Ex c
PVM Welcomes FREDDD to the Family
Over 10 years ago, TESSS, the famous purple cow, became an important part of PVM. She still reminds all rs m e r • D of us daily that our Villages, te ynamic • De programs, services and care need to stand out, be distinctive, demonstrate our uniqueness, how we are special, how we are different and more responsive, and how our vision for the future sets us apart from others. TESSS’ name is derived from the five words… Teamwork, Excellence, Sensitivity, Stewardship and Success. FREDDD, the penguin, recently joined the PVM family. It was a long journey from Antarctica to Michigan, but he has found a good, warm and loving home with PVM. He and TESSS have quickly become great friends. FREDDD’s name is taken from the following six words… Foresight. Relentless, Excellence, Diverse, Dynamic and Determined.
and more responsive and how their vision for the future sets them apart from others. That brings in TESSS as PVM’ s symbolic mascot. If we were to take a weekend drive out into the country (or daily as is the case in Rosebush), as we drive by the farms, we would likely see cows. Brown cows, black cows, white cows, black and white cows, but probably not a PURPLE COW. If we did come across a PURPLE COW, it would undoubtedly get our attention. We would probably slow down or even stop at the sight. We might get out of our car, possibly ask the farmer about this unusual cow. Later we might talk with our family and friends about what we saw. The word would spread and others might seek out the PURPLE COW. So TESSS is here to remind all of us of the importance of TEAMWORK, EXCELLENCE, SENSITIVITY, STEWARDSHIP AND SUCCESS and how we should strive to proudly stand out from the crowd and to serve our communities with distinctiveness and distinction. Thank you and best regards to all, Roger L. Myers President and Chief Executive Officer
He is teaching us the importance of a having a visionary, rigorous, quality, inclusive, exciting and vigilant approach to our thinking and planning for PVM’s evolving future. FREDDD stresses that while we are continuing to serve well in today’s environment, we must always be looking around us and as far ahead as possible for changes that will or may impact our mission. By doing so, we will be better prepared to thrive by successfully overcoming new challenges, taking advantage of new opportunities and continuing to innovate by delivering a unique value proposition to individuals, collaborators and communities alike. It is no accident that TESSS and FREDDD share one word in common, that being the word EXCELLENCE. They are both huge proponents of PVM’s commitment to Service Excellence and encourage each of us to live those principles every day. Please embrace the several important messages being shared by both TESSS and FREDDD. We greatly appreciate the special inspiration that they provide to everyone at PVM.
